I've never been particularly enamored of the D&D alignment system. It is far to black and white to give a true representation of a person or character.

Reality is more than 50 shades of grey, very few people are either all good or all bad.

I quite like Shakespeare's take on this in 'Measure for Measure' where he reveals the weakness of the argument for absolutism in several clever ways.

That said, BMH is referencing a game, not an actual philosophical treatise on the subject, so I would probably go with Chaos and be guided by my conscience.
