When you say something as generic as "generating value" then paying sufficient taxes could be considered an investment in the solvency of your target market. Any number of rationalizations could be made in either direction. You are correct though that the problem is not with Apple though, it's the citizens fault for not requiring a modicum of fairness in the tax code or at the very least shaming and boycotting corporations who are leeching.
Your "hater" phrasing does actually piss me off. Would you say that about your corporate friend you brought to dinner who doesn't leave a tip at a restaurant because it's not legally required? Since we've decided to co-exist with these financial constructs having human like qualities, it's time we started enforcing social norms on them so they can learn how to be a bit less autistic.
