Everything existing in theworld is god-given. Everything missing in the world is also god-given. Itcannot be otherwise for mice and men appear exclusively by God’s mercy. Anddisappear as well. Many deceive themselves when they think that they got lifeas a result of a romance (without romance, same sort of things) that happened betweenthe parents – father and mother. Indeed the fact of birth it is only aconsequence and the reason is beyond our physical ideas of the world. Nobody hasnot been yet able to explain and never ever will be able as it seems to explainwhy at a concrete moment at a concrete place it were you who have appeared andnobody else. And if there were no time, place, or circumstances? Also, nobodyis able to explain by what law and in what order all flesh quits this world. The problem that is hard to tackle for the society. You need explanation.Understand - Yes. Explain - no. Please God... it is off discussion. Anothercase is when the struggleis fought in the real world. For a place. For a livingspace. It can be explained. Without God. Simple as that. The right to live fistof all the strongest one gets. With an equally regular result. The morestrength you have the more right you have. Given that, naturally for anycivilized society to suppose that such a struggle shall be fought under commonrules. Should such rules be breached, for a society the rule comes to use violence.Given that victims are unavoidable. In such a case can we always be sure that apunishment is used to protect the blind side? Does not it mean that apunishment is a means of the strong to become stronger? Does a society have theright to deprive a man of life? Everybody has the right to live. So tells themain law of the country which is written for people. It is only difficult tounderstand from the law what a concrete right is the talk about? Although thepeople are ignorant but they do understand, that they got the right tolife from God. If this right is providential, then what the talk is about? Moreover,life is a multidimensional notion. The society has many ways of depriving a manof the dearest without recourse to extreme measures. And at that it will alwaysdeclare that it will give you a possibility to implement your right to life andin response you will pretend that you are alive only due to it. An unsecuredright is like a dry shot. It is meant for an idle interest. Hot air. Equal tohub dub and tantara. The rightto life is probably the most beautiful myth evercreated by man. Today the society is divided into two parts: one is forpunishment through depriving of the right to life, another one is against it. Kolesnikov and Denisov tell nothing on this subject. But they propose to have alook at the problem at another angle. As a kind of an absurd question it may beasked whether the society may be simultaneously an executioner and a victim? More over,this absurd question is put to the societyin the coherent logic form of a completed artistic object. Artists always act in such away when they want to explain a complex and intricate thing. Get the truthexplained. In a simple and understandable way. Using an artistic method as themost effective way of reaching an understanding. Through feelings. Throughinvolvement. Peter Vois
