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 necessity of bloody sacrifice

It is at the same time surprising and not surprising that the people of a post-sacrifice world would find it so difficult to conceive of why a bloody sacrifice would ever be necessary or effective: not surprising, because they live in a world where bloody sacrifice has been nullified by the work of Christ; and yet surprising, because the crucifixion, which is the one example of true sacrifice with which every modern Western person is familiar, was itself a very bloody sacrifice, albeit the one which rendered all future bloody sacrifice obsolete.
