Warning: Steem witnesses executed a hard fork on 2020-05-20, seizing 23.6M STEEM from 65 accounts. The funds were transferred to an account named @community321, the ownership (and intentions) of which have not been revealed. The witnesses claim to have been targeting accounts which defended against a hostile takeover in early March, but at least 2 accounts on the list have been inactive for over 4 years.

Poverty -5minutefreewrite
For https://steempeak.com/freewrite/@mariannewest/day-692-5-minute-freewrite-wednesday-prompt-poverty

Call me impoverished, if you like, Just don’t call me late-for-dinner


HA

Poverty. Poverty is like playing the game on hard mode on a glitchy machine that shuts down all the time and that puts you back at start once you turn the machine back on and also it costs even more quarters the second, third, fourth, etc. time through


Not a particularly useful analogy, but a fun one. 

I think … I dunno. Aside from the technical definitions of poverty that governments use to decide who gets free healthcare, what is poverty? Is it being honestly unsure if you can pay the rent? Would someone who is deluded into believing that they can’t afford rent be impoverished if they were actually rich, they just believed that?

So, not that. Maybe it’s having to go without something that is necessary… but what is necessary? I might think that a house is necessary, but my apartment certainly serves most of the needs. I dunno. Does it matter? Yes, but I don’t know what to do about it. It matters in a big sense because it helps us know how much work we have to do as a society, but it doesn’t matter individually how we define it, because I don’t have a ton of power. I’d like us all to have access to a healthy, safe environment-

There are so many ways ... I don't know if it always has to do with material things...
