Fair point.  Do we want to get into a political debate about where those 
resources came from?   Are taxes collected and then spent different 
qualitatively from profits taken and then invested?   Both are 
involuntary redirections of resources based on the power of one set of 
humans over another.   Is a democratic government morally better than a 
corporate entity created and protected by that government's police powers?
