This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

Uniqueness of each nature

Traditional society refused to live in the abstract. It could not be fooled by any slogan into believing that each man contained within himself the same nature, characteristics, and potentialities. Thus, it organized its society in such a way as to respond and nurture a variety of “types” or natures, offering unique paths designed specifically to reinforce and assist men in realizing themselves to the fullest. This is the whole logic of the caste: that the undeniable differences in men should be embraced and nourished rather than ignored, abused, and exploited. Tradition would have nothing of the uniformity of our times, in which each man is presumed to be the same, and is therefore offered the same generic path for personal development, which is to say, a path that leads anywhere, and therefore nowhere.
