What really made me understand how bad it is in the world of today, a decade in to the 21st century, was when I read a book which was written in the end of the 19th century – “Les Miserables” by Victor Hugo.

The first time I heard the word “Miserables” was in Brazil. I asked several times, I remember, and at last I got the explanation – it was the step below poverty. Where you lose your value as a human and you loose the hope to become a human being again.

Maybe our thoughts goes to the people that in different ways have been stricken by catastrophes and therefore fallen into that – state. But it wasn’t them that came to my mind when I read ”Les Miserables”, it was not them I saw so clearly in front of me, described by Victor Hugo. It was our social outcasts in the western societies, mentally handicapped, homeless people, and drug-damaged people. Them the representatives of our society had stripped of their human dignity and condemned to become “Les Miserables”, because they didn’t fit into the system.
