"every bit of tax Apple dodges is a bit more incentive for your government(s) to try to get it out of your skin instead since you are a softer target"
Bullshit. They will tax us as much as they can get away with, corporation and citizen alike. They will use propaganda, intentional obfuscation and lying (ACA for instance), even the threat of force to get the tax money they feel is already owed to them. Even worse, there are members of our government who have stated on record, in financially obscure terms, that every dollar is owed to the government. They just let us keep what they don't tax, however any corporate profit or household income above the debt line they view as "lost revenue." In short, some members of our government feel they own every dollar you earn, they just let you have some of it back to keep you from voting them out.
