The walled garden makes more sense when we are on a growth cycle, or more precisely it is more likely that the walled garden will remain a reasonable option when a growth cycle makes a lot of left-over energy available to monopolist strategies, which in a more stable circumstance would be trapped into long-term dynamics. Inside the market talk selling dream-houses in closed communities, it might seem like they are exploring a basal desire for security, that the human being at some level has a desire for this fake security that is the walled garden. But maybe not. Maybe it’s just that we are at a very specific, and uncommon, point in time where this lie is easy to sell. What i mean to say is: Let’s not take this too seriously before we have some 2 or 3 centuries of historical data to base our conjectures…
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.
