justification for Incometax

हालहलो नैव विषं विषं रमा
जनाः परं व्यत्ययमत्र मन्यते।
निपीय जागर्ति सुखेन तं शिवः
स्पृशन्निमां मुह्यति निद्रया हरिः॥
hālahalo naiva viṣaṁ viṣaṁ ramā
janāḥ paraṁ vyatyayamatra manyate|
nipīya jāgarti sukhena taṁ śivaḥ
spṛśannimāṁ muhyati nidrayā hariḥ||

ഹാലാഹലോ നൈവ വിഷം വിഷം രമാ
ജനാ പരം വ്യത്യയമത്ര മന്‍യതെ
നിപീയ ജാഗര്‍ത്തി സുഖേന തം ശിവ:
സ്പ്രുശന്നിമം മുഹ്യതി നിദ്രയാ ഹരി:
Among many things that came out of the milky ocean when it was churned by the gods and demons, two remarkable products are the most destructive  poison Halahalam  which was gobbled up by Bagavaan Siva  so that the universe would be saved.  Subsequently the goddes of wealth Rama also appeared. Lord Vishnu embraced her and married her.  People talk hig of Rama and fear Halahalam as a killer poison. But the fact is just the opposite.  Rama (wealth) is the real poison. One can see the evidence. Siva is always staying awake and healthy in spite of the poison. But from the moment Vishnu touched Rama, He is in deep sleep, oblivious of anything else. 
Here the important message of the subhashitam is that when  people come by large wealth they simply forget everything else in the world and enter into a state of stupour where they are blind to everything other than amassing wealth.  Even the most potent venom cannot change people to this extent.
Maybe that is the reason why we collect the incometax ... to take away the excessive wealth  and cure people of their sleepy habits.
 we want all people to be fully awake.. What better shock treatment can be there?
