LMAO! Actually Catja, your ethics make quite a lot of sense to me as well! For some reason, whenever I think of magical ethics I automatically go to the 'peace, love and prosperity' spells version...

But your examples have certainly given me a few ideas to mull over... I particularly like the house protection ethics idea (since I don't have a baseball bat, I'll substitute golf club - and I do have the physical strength to inflict serious injuries with that item... you break into my house, you'll get beaten 'til you're unconscious and you'll stay that way until the police get here! Grin).

okay...here is my problem with this attitude...how does that help your house from not getting broken into in the first place? Isn't that what you really want, for your space to be inviolate? As a person who has had her grandmother's pearls stolen when someone broke into our house (actually just walked in...if you really want people to not break into your house, please remember to lock your doors *and windows...*all the windows) I was not doing any magick at the time, but i can tell you for sure that even though I was very angry, and violated and done wrong by, I fail to see how setting it up so the person would be injured would ultimately prevent the robbery in the first place. Or do me any good. Seems to me that setting appropriate protection around you house would not need that kind of violent intent, in fact it would really be superfluous. And for magick to be really effective, ime, it is better if it doesn't have a lot of unnecessary, emotional additions attached to it.

  The power of Air,

  And the power of Earth,
  for the strength to continue my path.
