„If you’re forced to live in a shack built of cardboard and metal, it means that you are relatively poor, and poverty is the lack of alternatives. The case decides that you are born and grow up in the slums. This is not a moral decline, although many people see it that way. However, a person living in slums position may seem like a failure because such a society sends the message. […] It remains a daily struggle for their dignity, against others who, knowingly or not, are trying to rob you of it. This constant worrying: if tomorrow you will have what to eat? And next week? Can you afford to get sick, and what will then happen to you? Is tomorrow morning your hut will be demolished since it was established „without permission” and you yourself will become homeless? It is impossible to experience it if you did not actually poor, and it can not leave the slums next day or week when you’ve had enough of this „experience”. So the only thing you can expect from these „slums” is a couple of nights camping.
