The Whole Law

Aleister Crowley's 'do what thou wilt'. Used to think it was a recipe for selfish chaos. Inevitably, the will of any person clashes against the wills of others. But that's when the interesting questions start. 'Do what thou wilt' must include wanting the action and any consequence of that action, since the latter can't be avoided. So inevitably, the individual has to review all possible outcomes to be sure of what they want. If they always did that, it would surely expand will beyond petty lusts to the broadest issues - what kind of world did they want to be part of, and what would they do to make that happen?
Now I see it as morality condensed.
