The book “Capital” by Karl Marx became the basis for two completely different socio-political phenomena: communism and capitalism (or the phenomena which can be seen as anti-globalism and globalism today). Setting off from this postulate we come to see that contemporary society has the same principles in its foundations and that each and every rebellion becomes utopian in nature. However hard we try to distance ourselves, if only theoretically, we cannot escape the ultimate consequences that regardless of everything, a human life unfortunately has a price, too. Our only possible response is not to take a critical stand, but live it, for every change, even the one of a global nature, is first born in an individual.
