I doubt if you and I really disagree. The key point is (social) "equality" has been a disastrous political and social ideal for 220 years now. Everyone needs to reject it in favor of (individual) LIBERTY. The only "equality" worth having is political equality or equality before the law.

"I doubt if you and I really disagree."
Yes, we probably agree on substance, but it is hard to tell because of unclear communications and somewhat cavalier use of the terms.
The point was, and you are welcome to disagree, that a statement
" The key point is (social) "equality" has been a disastrous political and social ideal for 220 years now"
is neither correct nor incorrect: it is ill formed. One cannot assess the truthfulness of premises and validity of implications because the terms are ill defined.
