Tax Avoidance

It's been amusing in recent days to follow the so-called Panama Papers story about all those super-rich types going to enormous trouble to park their cash in places where they can avoid paying their fair share of tax. The irony of it: having so much more than others, yet being determined to keep as much of it as possible. They must have missed the lesson about civic responsibility. Or the one about how happiness has no basis in the desire for as much money - or celebrity - as possible. It's difficult to feel indignation over something so pathetic.
