DAPL security truck on fire, October 27.

My The Wild Hunt article “The Tiger’s Leap” starts with Walter Benjamin’s theories about the constant “emergency situation,” especially as experienced by Black and Brown people in the United States. It further explores his ideas about the “moment of danger,” “exploding the continuum of history” and relating to the past through “the tiger’s leap into that which has gone before […] into the open sky of history.” It then looks at calls to “make it impossible for this system to govern on stolen land” and the anti-DAPL struggle in particular.

My latest article at The Wild Hunt, “Antifascism and the Dionysian Spirit,” commemorates the Iron Column of liberated prisoners and other “uncontrollables” which fought in the 1936 Spanish Civil War and Revolution despite the betrayal of their supposed comrades, critiques the statist “antifascism” prevalent within Heathenry and Polytheism, and explores the history of pro-Dionysian revolt in antiquity.

My latest article for The Wild Hunt, “Black August,” is up.

Black August originated in the 1970s following the August 7, 1970 deaths of Jonathan Jackson, James McClain and William Christmas during a prisoner liberation and hostage-taking at the Marin County Courthouse and the August 21, 1971 death of George Jackson during a prison rebellion in San Quentin.

Black August also commemorates numerous other significant moments in black history including but not limited to the Haitian Revolution, which began on August 21, 1791 and was preceded by the Vodou ceremony at Bois Caïman on August 14, the slave rebellions led by Gabriel Prosser on August 30, 1800 and by Nat Turner on August 21, 1831, the founding of the Underground Railroad on August 2, 1850 and the Watts rebellions in August, 1965.

My July essay for The Wild Hunt was written as a devotee of war gods with the purpose of examining various theories about the State’s monopoly of violence, counter-insurgency and warriorship. It was written in the aftermath of the killing five police officers during a Black Lives Matter demonstration in Dallas July 7 and the killing of three police officers in Baton Rouge July 17, the same city where Alton Sterling was killed July 5.
