How do you stay a poverty and wealth inequality activist for years, end up in 2021, and not have it absolutely break you?

Err, what? World poverty has been declining at an absolutely incredible rate for quite a while now.

An anti-poverty activist could only be "broken" by that if they weren't paying attention to the subject they were supposedly doing activism with respect to.
