Saul never thought of himself as the big shot. He was not sports hero, he was not math wiz. He was barely average at even what he did best. but he was not terrible at anything either. That is how it ended up that Saul had a most unique pair of beliefs. He thought he was not special. Contrary to most everyone else in that pocket universe, he wasn’t constantly seeking more and more, because he pretty much figured out he was lucky enough as it was. He didn’t feel underpaid, nor underloved, nor underrespected, nor undersexed. Saul was satisfied. But by and of itself, this didn’t make him unique, there were a few like that. The truly unmatched thing about Saul’s beliefs was that, unlike all the other people who played the underdog, Saul really thought his way of seeing things could help people. Of course his one or two attempts at suggesting were taken as attempts to out-smart others, so he quickly learned to keep opinions to himself. But still… Still, he knew how to solve those problems everyone seems to complain about all the time.
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.
