Apple "Apple, the world's most profitable technology company, doesn't design iPhones here. It doesn't run AppleCare customer service from this city. And it doesn't manufacture MacBooks or iPads anywhere nearby. Yet, with a handful of employees in a small office here in Reno, Apple has done something central to its corporate strategy: it has avoided millions of dollars in taxes in California and 20 other states." Sure, this is all legal for companies to do (and Apple obviously isn't alone) but it does show you how much sense of morality companies have. Answer: none. But hey, it's legal, and the law is never wrong, right?

Did you just list off things that could be paid for outside of a system that forces you to pay for it at gunpoint? Hrm?

You wrongfully assume you have to threaten to kill everybody to get that paid for (taxation). I think it's better to ask nicely and allow choices. ;)
