Given that many consider taxation itself to be legalised 'theft' Governments protesting it is immoral to use legal manoevres to minimise taxation is hardly edifying. The moral point is the clearer when one takes into account the use that governments too often put much of the funds they 'confiscate' from taxpayers. When governments and politicians spend wisely and stop trying to buy voter support by unsustainable benefits, pensions, pretige projects. and lax financial controls, they might gain some of the respect required to introduce moral justifications for 'voluntary' taxation. Until such time as govenments can claim all their expenditures are morally justified, let us stick to the traditional respect for, and just application of, established law. If the law is inadequate then change it!
