In your opinion, how do you feel about poverty?
It is both an artificial and avoidable situation.
Is this influenced by Buddha’s attitude in the approach to poverty and in saying this do you agree or disagree with the stance?
I would yes.
Can you justify this further?
Here's some examples..
On Debt: Ina Sutta
When a King neglects to rule according to righteousness: Cakkavatti-Sihanada Sutta
When an entire nation reduces to misery when the Head of State is corrupt: Adhammika Sutta
Hoarding and mal-distribution: Agganna Sutta
Other causes of loss of wealth: Sigalovada Sutta
Kammic causes: Culakammavibhanga Sutta
Do the teachings and scriptures of Buddha influence your viewpoint?
To a large extent, yes
Does your personal life affect your views on poverty due to family values, career or a particular incident?
To some extent, yes
Are there any points in which you disagree on the religions viewpoint on poverty?
Only those which seek to either further keep people in poverty or refuse to alleviate them.
Do you recognise and identify your religions ethical code?
I should think so.
What do you, from your understanding, believe this is?
Does the ethical code align Buddhist views and values on poverty?
If based on the above quote, then yes.
If so, how do you feel the issue should be approached, considering the values and ethical code.
