I just deleted a tag I used to have called politics. It’s not that I don’t want to write about politics anymore. But in my “tag surfer” (which is a feature of wordpress that lists posts that have tags in common with you) all of the posts were linked to me only in the politics tag. Which would be OK, really, only if they were not all taking a very, very, narrow view, a partisan view, or “commenting on the dust”, expressing they self-righteous indignation about that or the other political screw-up or repeating some of the political marketing bull. That was not what I had in mind at all. So, I decided to take my work back underground, so to say, and delete the “politics” tag and go with something less… pop. I couldn’t think of a good word, so I created one! Agoratics, as from business of the Agora, or the Greek high-city, the marketplace, the place were the whole of society was discussed. So to say. Anyway, I feel the term refers too much to macro-politics, and therefore I am left in need of yet another word, which will probably be something as demotics or something…
Truth of the Lesser Men is a collection of ideas and short essays by a young male Brazilian called marcio rocha pereira, in a not-so-fluent English.
The subject is the world, society, live and how we live it. Or something like it. It is my attempt at understanding everything that happens all around me, an ontological travel journal of sorts. Which probably translates into, quite simply, my own opinions and thinking.
Nevertheless, i don’t know what i am, or if being something is important to me, or what you mean by “being something” — so that I can hardly answer the questions of what I do, or work with, or any of the other identity-assigning questions. If you are really interested, check the personal info.
The idea of this blog is to avoid rewriting as much as possible, and to write different takes to the same ideas if the need arise, instead of modifying. This is to avoid a constant state of in-progress.
Love or hate, i am always open for criticism (and i'll even accept praise with as much grace as i can manage). Hope you like it.
