If I exploit tax loopholes legally to avoid paying any tax, and have a large business exposure going on, should I be setting fiscal policy? Even if (due to Anti-Money Laundering regulation) I move my assets into a trust entity entrusted to my family, while I'm holding public office, should I be given the keys to the kingdom which could release or bind tax revenue? In other words, is it fair to expect a fox to guard the chicken coop? That this is our choice and some of us may not have made up our minds is significant. It holds up a mirror to ourselves.
