Never have I thought I witness 2 political drama in my lifetime; one on my own beloved country; and one in my own beloved blockchain
It has been so crazy, and all I can say was when Malaysia is out of control at the moment from very unethical exercise of politics; the #steem blockchain is something that could still be in salvaged.
I have listened to quite a number of Youtube updates and tweeters (gosh I have never been so active in Tweeter in my life before) after listening to the latest witnesses and talking to @justinsunsteemit I suddenly came by with a story narrative.
Once upon a time
There was a land, empty, desolate; and untouched. There came 2 people, who saw potential of the land, and they acquired it, and there they started building.
In this land, there was a house they built by these 2 persons. It was not just an ordinary house for residence, it was a very special house. It became part of the land to provide new comers with temporary shelter, fruits of harvest for new comers to enjoy, and tools to help new comers to settle down the land and cultivate with their God given talents.
The house became an agreement between the owners of the house with the new comers, later becomes settlers; that the house will never be demolished, and will always be the first shelter for new comers.
The settlers are welcome to stay in the land, and access to the house when needed, as long as they keep their bargain to keep the land fruitful.
Soon more new comers came and new settlers dwell in this land, the land slowly becomes nourished, and slowly, no longer desolate.
The owners also hired other people to come tend the land and the house with the equipment in the house, so that new comers can continue to learn, become dwellers and later settlers in the land.
Some settlers became prosperous in the land, and started building their own houses and equipment to tend the land, keeping the land fruitful.
The owner and the most capable settlers continued to have an agreement to keep the house intact for new comers; they become shareholders of the land, and the land was fruitful.
Along the way, one of the owner left the house and the land, and acquired somewhere else of greener pastures.
4 years gone by:
The house is still kept, but the weather wasn't too good. Not all the crops yield on the land was fruitful enough to sustain the many household in the land; but the shareholders of the land continued to tend the land, and brought in outside resources and equipment to upkeep the land, and the land still produce fruit for new comers and dwellers.
The owner of the house decided to sell the house away to a new owner, with all the equipment in it, and the house stewards now serves the new owner.
However the land that was once desolate and empty, now filled with other smaller houses and there are plenty of settlers and dwellers tend to the land, and reap of its harvest.
The new owner of the house sees the house, and thinks he can resell the house as its fruit for better profit, and maybe, introduce his own house and design, with his own equipment to tend the land, and even to yield different harvest; with the stewards, the settlers and the dwellers in the land.
But the shareholders stewarding the land and the previous owner had an agreement. The initial house that was built was to nourish the new comers, to acquaint themselves to the land until they can tend their own harvest in parts of the land. It was not for selling off and chopped down into pieces.
However, the first owner who sold the house to the new owner, didn't state so and left.
The shareholders and stewards of the land were worried that the new owner will damage the original house with its fruit. They built a hedge around it; and the new owner was not able to access to the house he bought.
The new owner was shocked and upset, calling the shareholder stewards thieves.
The new owner called for professional services to start occupy the parts of the land around the house where the first settlers dwell and tended the land, so that they can remove the hedge to the house and grab hold to it.
Pushed aside by the new professional services the shareholder stewards were unable to tend the land, and the land's harvest was affected; the shareholder stewards gathered all the new comers and dwellers to help them to reoccupy the land they dwell in order to keep the land producing the fruits as normal.
And within 24 hours, 10 of the 20 shareholder stewards regained the land, and stopped the new owner from removing the hedge.
So based on the story, who was right, and who was wrong?
- If there was a solid agreement between the owner and the shareholder stewards, would a sale changes its agreement?
- If the house was sold, and a new sale and purchase agreement made; should the seller remove the original agreement and sell it like just normal property?
This is a lot to take in. haha.
In the mean time, if you have never exercised your witness votes before, you should do so.
Let the stewards try to talk some sense to the new owners with a better occupancy of the land that is now in trouble.
