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).

Uses for the fall

The doctrine of the “fall” once proved useful for explaining the evils of the world to man; as of late, it has proven even more useful as a device evil men use to justify their actions to themselves and others. That is to say, it serves the opposite purpose. So many times I’ve mentioned a cruel public policy or complained about the ugliness of an act, and well-meaning Christians will say, “yes, well man is fallen and so we must take these measures to deal with him.” These people will create policies that encourage sin and justify it on the grounds that they are dealing with sinners. They use the doctrine of the fall to justify a further descent.
