This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

NOTICE:
This Dark Age is now available in paperback on Amazon. The print version is MUCH cleaner than this online version, which is largely unedited and has fallen by the wayside as the project has grown. If you’ve appreciated my writing, please consider leaving a review on the relevant paperback volumes. The print edition also includes new sections (Military History, War Psychology, Dogmatic Theology).

The meaning of dogma

Dogmatism is the translation of spirit into letter such that it can serve as a means of guidance and realization for believers. Dogma brings the truth within reach of believers by placing it within limits, expressing it in a very narrow fashion that is strictly suited to the people for whom it is formulated.

Dogma should always be understood as a specific formulation that–true as it may be–is only comprehensible to a certain group of people. It cannot be integrated by others without the Truth it was meant to convey being perverted.
