“Do you know the writings of Shan Yu?”
Shan Yu, Warrior Poet or Psychotic Dictator- it all depends on point of view. He said you could live with a man for forty years, eat with him, pray with him, speak with him on every subject; then carry him up a mountain, hold him over a volcano… only then will you truly meet the man.
They say is reputation than matters, but what is reputation? Gossip, stories; this means nothing. No, what is really important is proof. I hire you to do job, you do job for me, then your reputation is no longer stories; is fact. Even then, I will not truly know you. No, for that we must dig deeper…
Some call me sadist, some just say ‘very bad man’, is nothing. I am a businessman, no more or less. And in business is wise to know the people you count on. Is not enough to know why a man says he has stolen from me, I have him tortured to know who he really is. To get to heart of matter. And I do. And I enjoy it, meeting the man inside the man; and I enjoy the journey to meeting him. And once I have spent as many days as possible ‘meeting’ him, I enjoy his death. For that is who I am.
So now you have met me; as much as you might. For we are not fated to meet at the foot of a volcano.
