“As you read this book, leave your pride and preconceived beliefs at the door. Withhold judgement until you have finished it. Have open-minded Skepticism towards what you read and I am sure you will see the foundations you once held dear slowly crumble away. James makes no apologies in this book, your worldview will be challenged and if you are fortunate enough, you will be set free from the chains of moral Realisms." — Matthew RayI define 'Power—Nihilism' as a skepticism or disbelief of claims to objective or absolute meaning morality and purpose; and a recognition that moral dogma along with religious and political ideologies are a means of control or gaining power over others. Power-Nihilism also contends that the existence of a God or an entire pantheon of Gods is insufficient to bridge the is-ought gap or produce objective moral values and duties. Furthermore, the recognition that power, ability, and force, actuate desire or the aim of the will. That power actuates ought. (This is 'descriptive' not prescriptive.) As I see it, existence is a war of competing wills which is neither inherently good nor evil, wrong nor right, and devoid of intrinsic value or worth. For this reason, I refer to it as Power—Nihilism. Within this text I contend that: —Objective Morality Is An Illusion With or Without Gods— —Power Is The Basis of Life & Law— —Life Is Wille Zur Macht—
