"Liber OZ" (or "Book 77") is a single page by English author and occultist Aleister Crowley purporting to declare mankind's basic and intrinsic rights according to Crowley's philosophy of Thelema. Written in 1941[1] (though based on a much earlier O.T.O. initiation lecture), the work consists of five succinct and concise paragraphs, being one of the last and shortest of Crowley's many "libri," or books.[2]

Crowley wrote the piece for Louis Wilkinson[1] in order to convey as simply as possible the "O.T.O. plan in words of one syllable" broken down into "five sections: moral, bodily, mental, sexual, and the safeguard tyrannicide...".[3]
