Types of Poverty in order of degree of suffering

Material poverty: lack of one or more of the basics – healthy food in a quantity so as to provide full nutrition, shelter, clothing, health care

Spiritual poverty: lack of solidarity, of communal togetherness

Sexual poverty: lack of sexual relations

Social poverty: lack of social relations

Intellectual poverty: lack of understanding of one’s reality

The left overwhelmingly focuses on Material poverty and nearly entirely ignores the other types.
