Do you really want the government deciding when your prison term is up / "justice has been served" based on whether they think you have been rehabilitated or not?
That's a good point; I wish I had mod points for you. That said, "an eye for an eye" is just. It is, perhaps, the most fair retribution possible, but it is not the sort of thing we see, or want to see in our justice system. I think there needs to be some mix of justice and mercy.
Companies don't pay taxes. They pass them off to the customers.
You may be a troll, but I see this argument in real life so I will respond to it.
That is true, but does not help at all. In this case, Apple customers are getting cheaper products at the expense of the rest of the tax payers who pay for the public services that Apple takes advantage of. You see what happened? Tax evasion still costs money. It's just that it's the people who don't buy Apple products that end up paying the cost of Apple's tax evasion.
TL;DR: Tax evasion and government subsidies are functionally the same. I don't want the government subsidizing Apple.
