The poster “Does God Exist?” talks to us about the complex way that the world controls capital, which is in the hands of individuals. Although social goods should be accessible to everyone, unfortunately they are not because big capital uses it primarily for their interests. Through capital, which is in the hands of the great powers, and indirectly individuals, a select few control the world. Even without weapons, the use of capital in certain ways can definitely be used as a tool to inflict suffering and pain. And what should help people to prosper and change world for the better, has transformed in time to prove the opposite. If it is so, a well-grounded question is raised, that there is no goodness in us that equates one with God. God is a devil and vice versa. “For this thesis is used a sentence from F. M. Dostojewski” tells Edi.
