from the AL-is-not-ought dept.
I'm taking a philosophy course in ethics, and it has raised a number of questions in my mind.
What sort of morality does the Thelemic system adhere to? Is the only standard to follow one's Will?
There is no law beyond Do what thou wilt... So, then, the rest of Liber AL is just a clarification thereof? It would seem that literally following some passages would lead a person to become numb to the pain of others.
Does all this depend on one's individual Will?
If we "let them die in their misery," are we just deluding ourselves? Or is there a deep significance that I sense in that passage?
I realize how subjective the answers must be, but a little input is never a bad thing. Thanks.
