15. Taxing profits and allowing expenses to be deducted simply opens the door

 

to what we have, a completely perverse system that allows those that benefit the most to pay the least for the very system that allows them to exist.

The fundamental problem is that our system allows the true costs of production to be externalized (hidden) and subsidized by the whole society to the exclusive benefit of the owners. This is what your example and its underlying premise demonstrates.
