	Ok. So, as expected (by me), you are not providing any libertarian criticism to the garbage donald spouts. 

> I was simply pointing out how some people resist the idea of having different laws for different people, 

	yes, the people who 'resist' that idea are the libertarians. So what point are you trying to make, exactly? 

>even when other people claim there appears to be a need for it.  .   I had been aware of Bloomberg's amazing comment since just a few days after it occurred (about Feb 6, 2015) and I frequently cite it (and leftists' equally-clueless reactions to it) to expose their hypocrisies.  It is quite useful.  

	useful for what? If your point is not that bloomberg and donald are fascist twins, then what is your point?

> I DON'T think that's the same thing.  
	yeah, so what. 

> >And the very existence of any kind of state violates the principle of equality before the law.

> Well, I generally agree 'states' should not exist, but without 'states' that greatly changes the concept of 'laws', and 'equality'.

	no it doesn't, at all. The libertarian concepts of law and equality are completely independent of 'states', which are just criminal gangs. This is the ABC of libertarian philosophy, by-the-way.

	So, again, 

	"I'll be waiting for any actual 'cypherpunk' or libertarian to shred donalds 'philosophy' to pieces. I think I'm going to wait a looong time."
