Do as thy wilt, but hurt none.

Ah the wiccan rede, also known as "Alister Crowley Lite". All the freedom, half the guilt. Totally unrealistic and impractical (at least in this universe). The actual interpretation of this is "Do what you want, just don't get caught". It boils down to, where do you draw the line of demarcation that defines "harm"? Many would consider acting on your every impulse without regaurd to social structure or moral/ethical guidelines to be "harmful". Your lack of discipline and participation in the greater social structure of mankind could considered to be "harmful". In the end, this statement of "Do as thou will, but harm no one" is a cop out justifaction in attempt to rebuild a failed religion that died out due to it's very lack of structure in the first place.

This is a great addition.
