This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

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 charity for all types

Everyone needs to integrate charity into their lives because man is not pure Intellect, but is body-soul-spirit and as this composite he is situated in the human order, which is the order not of intellection but of action, which to say of love. Yes, charity is transcended but this implies that it is already integrated into one’s being—transcendence is not rejection but implies the possession of the thing transcended. It means that the thing is no longer relied upon as the primary support. An absence of virtue divides man against himself and undermines even valid intellectual pursuits.
