1. Nihilism

There are no values. Everything is meaningless.

Dismissal: If that’s true, then it is ipso facto pointless to believe in it.

2. Relativism

There are no absolute values. Any set of values is equally valid in its own context.

Dismissal: Including, presumably, my set of values—viz., that it is important to apply universal standards.

3. Derrida-esque post-structuralism? post-modernism? deconstructionism? drug-induced dementia?

There is no absolute truth. Even the words true and false stem from misapprehensions of the world.

Dismissal: Clearly, that cannot be true. If you even assert that it is true, you are contradicting yourself. (I have seen someone attempt to defend this with a straight face; I do not understand how.)
