Human nature is a simple and easily comprehended thing that can be summed up in one simple phrase: "Do as thou will shall be the whole of the law." Old Al really knew what he was talking about when he spewed forth that little gem, because it is the only rule that encompasses all of what humanity may do. The good, altruistic, vile, despicable, clear, shaded, and inexplicable things that spring forth from the creations of men fall under the authority of this undeniable law.

One of the problems I have with what I call "Sound Bite Ethics" is this that it is easy to leave out important stuff to get a "short sound bite".  This is a good example. There is more to what Crowley said. For example, "Love is the Law, love under Will."  Even this addition doesn't help if you don't known what Crowley meant by "Will."

I was not offering a "sound-bite" I was merely trying to remind the gentleman without being too wordy, that there are many good sources for the answer to his question. Of course, there is more to the entire ethical problem, and Crowley certainly added his own little advisory with the law of will. However, I am more than clear on what is meant by "will", I only assumed that others might look into the issue a little more under their own wind, and not rely entirely on my "sound-bite" as the end-all and be-all of my point.
