    But Nietzsche thought that the idea that there was no Lawgiver would lead people to reject the idea of moral Law. As Kant pointed out, most people accept the idea of Moral Law, even if they reject the idea of there being a Lawgiver.

    If people buy into Nietzsche's view that no God = no rules, we will have trouble. As in "Lord of the Flies" / "Heart of Darkness" style trouble; experience shows that letting people make their own rules does not end well.
