Taxation as Social Engineering

Yaron Brook has another good column up at An excerpt:
Here's the point: Government's job is not to dictate your values but to protect them. In a free country, you choose values and then use your own money as a tool to achieve them. But a value-rigged tax policy reverses this cause and effect--it uses your money against you, bribing you with tax breaks that let you keep some of your earnings in exchange for abandoning your preferred values.
P.S. Comments on any of these articles are always appreciated.
