    You make a good point, I did not account for it and it would have to be considered.

    However, simplifying the code to extremely basic rather than complicated rules does make it more difficult to get around.

    There are 4,563 words in the US constitution and 5.6 million in the US tax code and associated regulations.  

    One of these has regulated one of the largest and most power governments in the history of the world for over two centuries with very few revisions.  

    The other is changed yearly, is completely riddled with loopholes and injustices and has lead to frequent inequalities in the distribution of wealth.

    Imagine how simple and easy to follow the bible would have been if it simply stated two rules; "Treat others as you would like to be treated" and "Love one another as I have loved you."  

    Simple is always better (as long as all contingencies are accounted for).

    "Perhaps the sentiments contained in the following pages, are not YET sufficiently fashionable to procure them general favour..."
