Are we entering into a new Dark Age in the West or have we been there for some time?
I thought it would be appropriate to discuss this topic to begin the new year – a time that makes us think about time – an in attempt to gain an historical perspective on the current times in which we live.
In other words, to help answer the above question, we need historical perspective. Unfortunately, this is lacking in the West, no small thanks to the public school system. The public school system has been a raging success at removing all semblance of true history and replacing it with “social studies.” Because of our ahistorical perspective, people are open to all manner of suggestion by the powers that be.

History has been characterized as a dry memorization of facts that have no particular relationship to anything else, especially the present. Where the real problem lies is that history has had its soul taken away – that being its relationship with philosophy and theology. Without the perspective of God working through historical events for a purpose as well as applying sound reasoning principles, we are left with a lifeless corpse that we call “history.”
Social studies, then, is a way of acknowledging that history should not be just dry facts, but rather than linking history to sound theology and philosophy, it simply substitutes humanistic religion and philosophy.
