But likewise I see not that it should affect our actions. If we were to purchase a animal, that would be propogating the trade in animals in a direct fashion. And I agree that should not be done in the interest of compassion.
Nevertheless, I think you may be overthinking the situation.
An action motivated by compassion is not wrong. It may be skillful or unskillful, but it cannot be called wrong. Keith
