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.

Guan Sheng Di said:
"Man lives in the world. If he values loyalty, filial piety, honesty, and righteousness above all else, he will not fail in life.
However, if he doesn’t value loyalty, filial piety, honesty, and righteousness, although his body is alive, his heart is already dead. This is called stealing life.
Man’s heart knows the gods and the gods know man’s heart."
