I do not know how this is outside Brazil, but here the political organization of students is… Well, it has been important at some specific moments in history (though i really, really disagree with the common sense about which were those moments), and it still has some relevance, but it is definitely going through a crisis. Now i believe that this crisis is the beginning of a new age for student organizations, another student politics — and i also believe that it is a small-scale experiment in the long search for better politics (and for politics that make sense in our texting world). So i am writing this text about a subject that does not interest me anymore (student organizations) to help us think about this other one (politics, in general), which i believe is extremely relevant and urgent.
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.
