In the nineteenth century, Nietzsche put the matter in a brutal light by arguing that reason is a kind of linguistic illusion, that good and evil, are equally, illusionary, and there is nothing but one’s will and power to realize one’s will. In other words, there is no difference between the sentences “I want to do this” and “I have a right to do this”.
