Wicca can be a good introduction to a more naturalistic, humanistic religion than the patriarchal mystery religions that are so popular. In that way, it isn't a bad idea. Yes, a Witch is not a Druid, but in general the belief systems are a whole lot closer than something like Christianity or Islam. Keep in mind that Nature is utterly ruthless and fair. Today we have a definition of 'fair' that is closer to 'nice'. Fair does not mean nice, it means that everyone is equal. If a snake is able to surprise a cute, fuzzy mouse, the snake eats the mouse. They both had a chance to live, and for whatever reason the mouse was unable to save its own life... it then deserves to be eaten. There is no real good or bad, there is only preserving your life, keeping a full belly, and procreating. Druidic decisions may seem harsh or unfeeling, but they are mirroring Nature; they make dispassionate decisions about life and death based only on what must happen to preserve balance, not what they necessarily want to happen. Death is as much a part of life as eating or sleeping. Druids should be unafraid of both, and should be entirely willing to heal life or cut it down wherever necessary. People have no problem genocidally killing unwanted weeds or wiping out colonies of termites or ants.. they also have no problem overfeeding and causing dependence in local animals. A Druid does what is necessary to maintain the balance.
