The majestic equality of the law, which forbids rich and poor alike to sleep under bridges, beg in the streets, and steal bread.Anatole France

"La loi, dans un grand souci d'égalité, interdit aux riches comme aux pauvres de coucher sous les ponts, de mendier dans les rues et de voler du pain."

If only that were true!

As a swede, I would say that it should be equal rather than alike.

That's also accepted. :)

Lagen är lika för alla. - this is transalted into 'The law is the same for all', however, I was led to believe that 'lika' meant 'similar' and 'samma' meant 'same', therefore I find myself a tad discombobulated and in need of some assistance. Heeeeelp! : )

Lika is equal, but lik is similar.
