Wisdom over Just-ice
"...Regardless of whatever their past kamma may have been, if you mistreat them, the kamma of mistreatment (starting by thought, then speech and acts) becomes yours. Just because people are currently weak and poor doesn’t mean that their kamma requires them to stay weak and poor. There’s no way of knowing, from the outside, what other kammic potentials are waiting to sprout from their past...
Who is one, are they, who judge such? It, even such often seens notions, remember on approaches or certain Ariya-movement, best reminded in Europe, but actually everywhere and one time by these and then those all over the world, in just different color.
Different or handicap, according to the common notion of such uprising intents, have been the first, who first have ben restricted and later even kill for being not "common".
What people try to have, take, hold, if not taken ungiven from the owner, is absolutely in their sphere. Also the taking birth of a being, here or there, on own causes.
It's good to exclude such from being "to be controlled by others" ethical approaches, not to speak of putting the lable of Buddha-Dhamma on it, justme.
Nobody is really interested in "just me" by others, or?
A maybe satisfactioning tiny story about "good and bad luck" and daily opinions of villagers. Try to put this stories message as answering your question.
That there is no in charge in this world is a fact and it runs always out therrible if people likedesrie to controll birth and death, lose and gain, in frames of their opinions: "Beings are owner of their kamma" and think if others would assume that you have "potencal" to give ground for possible "unlucky situations" and now tell you that you are forbidden to gave "children", fruits of you acts, and cut off even your hands, or close you mouth.
Maybe good to educate compassion also in regard of birth.
Consider such, this all here, not to think you need to act like told or restricted. Your thoughts, speech and acts will fall back to you, good, neutral or bad.
In regard of the from Upasaka Lanka added question, in your question: "Do any Buddhist traditions teach anything in that regard?"
"Buddhists" did, do and will do such for interests of "wordily perfection", but the Buddha and his disciples did, do and will not do. Either to intent the makinging Samsara perfect nor to take on ideas to controll it and the means to control of what one is not in charge. Not to speak of harming or deriving, take away something others hold. Just think on current cases in Burma or Sri Lanka, or look on secular Buddhism pages... to face what certain "Buddhist" develop on teachings.
On reasons why people are, are born, like this or that, with this or that appearing, is not a matter seen by science, a matter of statistic... but can be found explained in The Shorter Analysis of Action.
Even their popular "Buddhist" monks do teach unskillful means for certain justice, teaching the jstification of taking away, existence and there sources:
To give just some samples, yet not possible to count on statistic or to assume that they would have no potential to change as well for real great, worthy to follow and even assume them as inherent bad. Not knowing, not seeing, one thinks, speaks, does wrong.
So it can be assumed, that "Buddhist"s probably teach such if becoming popular an "political" correct.
Again, such, and they, should not be misstaken with Dhamma, the Buddha an his following disciple, since do base and intent for "political involvement and doing favors" for common sense. Avoid involved.
"So, student, the way leading to short life makes people short-lived, the way leading to long life makes people long-lived; the way leading to sickliness makes people sickly, the way leading to health makes people healthy; the way leading to ugliness makes people ugly, the way leading to beauty makes people beautiful; the way leading to lack of influence makes people uninfluential, the way leading to influence makes people influential; the way leading to poverty makes people poor, the way leading to wealth makes people wealthy; the way leading to low birth makes people low-born, the way leading to high birth makes people highborn; the way leading to stupidity makes people stupid, the way leading to discernment makes people discerning.
Beings are owners of kamma, heir to kamma, born of kamma, related through kamma, and have kamma as their arbitrator. Kamma is what creates distinctions among beings in terms of coarseness & refinement...
Take care of your thoughts, speech and acts, to be not later a target of others with same notions, if they are bad and to gain: long-life, beauty (regard), bliss and strange (as an additional outwardly protection for times conditions for ripping are present. Not to speak about gaining wisdom and itjs release, even here and now.
