A horrible thought

If I'm "economically challenged," and I force you, under threat of violence, to give me your money, I would be tossed in jail. (and rightfully so)

If I'm "economically challenged," and the government forces you, under threat of violence, to give me your money, and graciously accepts a percentage for facilitating the transfer; you would be out some cash, or in jail.

It occurs to me that if the government ever figures out how to get criminals to pay taxes on the stuff they steal, we'd be severely fucked.
