Taxation is about power redistribution, not about money as a conserved object.

When the Inland Revenue in the UK let Goldman Sachs off a sizeable tax bill while bankrupting small business owners for relatively tiny amounts due, that's very much a live political issue.

I never disputed that. Just pointing out that the "money should not be taxed twice" argument is merely a self-serving fallacy.
