As you can see below, the importance of freedom – away from poverty, in employment with a decent wage. Also the dangers of the Caste system that even today, causes much harm to people within Hindu community.
The point is, if, people are trapped within Unemployment, on little income, then branded as a lesser individual – then people suffer, they get angry.
If people are employed, wealthy and, free; they are happy individuals
Poverty. In the Cakkavatti-Sihanāda Sutta (Digha Nikāya 26), the Buddha describes the progressive degeneration of society after a negligent king allows poverty to arise, ending in a ‘sword interval’ when all fight against all. He recognised that people in poverty have little opportunity for spiritual practice, so for hungry people, material improvement must come before spiritual.
Employment. In one sutta, the Buddha tells of a wise chaplain who advises a king who wants to make a great sacrifice. He tells him not to waste resources on a vanity project while his kingdom is ‘beset by thieves’, but to invest in making sure that people have the means of making a living. “To those in the kingdom who are engaged in cultivating crops and raising cattle, let Your Majesty distribute grain and fodder; to those in trade, give capital; to those in government service assign proper living wages. Then those people, being intent on their own occupations, will not harm the kingdom. Your Majesty’s revenues will be great; the land will be tranquil and not beset by thieves; and the people, with joy in their hearts, playing with their children, will dwell in open houses.” (From K̄ūṭadanta Sutta, Digha Nikāya 5).
Caste. Buddhist monks had to give up their caste when they joined the sangha and the Buddha argued strongly against the idea that any caste was superior to another. See for instance Assalāyana Sutta (Majjhima Nikāya 93).
