NO THING IS TRUE EVERY THING IS PERMITTED

"Where other men blindly follow the truth, remember..."

"Nothing is true."

"Where other men are limited by morality or law, remember..."

"Everything is permitted."

Ezio, how do you understand to these words?

  It is a not a truism that all things are permitted.

That is why laws exist, and beyond even laws,  morality and  social custom.

 

   Moreover, the statement that Nothing---Is---True,  is a self-refuting philosophical claim,

because if you are an advocate of that statement, you claim it for a truth.

 

 Thus,  the assertions you publish become representative of a  contradictory logic,  as is presented in the classical Paradox of Empimenides.

 

  Empimendes, a Greek,  said:   "All Greeks are liars."---Epimenides, a Greek

 

  Beyond that, it  cannot possibly be true that "Everything is Permitted'  if you also write that

"...other men are limited by  morality or law".  To say that any men are limited is to  conclude that some actions are not permitted.
