Bah, you mean to say one should be allowed to make profits on the
taxes paid ? Then why do you need taxes in the first place. There are
many things in the system which are made with public money, but you
have to pay to use them. Public transport, museums, hospitals etc.
 Also, how come IIT's are making profit from the content made with
public money? Content is available for free to download and they are
willing to ship the content on a DVD and only charging for shipping
and handling...


The hidden harmony is better than the obvious!!
