The Rede is the Central Law of Wiccan religion. In short
it states: "If it harms none, do what you want." You may see it phrased in different ways.
Some use the old English: "An it harm none, do as thou wilt". The Rede is seen by both Wiccans
and outside observers as very similar to the Golden Rule, a belief that is found in nearly
every religion. It should be noted that, while the Golden Rule forbids harm subjectively, the
Wiccan Rede forbids harm absolutely.
