My opinion doesn't alter reality, though.
I would hope I am not so shallow that I would let that stop me from seeing reality. And, there are several things I was once in favor of that I rejected due to thinking the matter through rather than sticking with what I liked.
It's not as if lots of other people who have (or once had) "tax addict jobs" don't see what's really going on- it just makes acting on that knowledge more painful. Yet many do it anyway. Perhaps they are better than I am.
As it stands, I don't consider getting a government job, even though it could be justified on the basis of being a mole or a monkeywrencher. And, I really would prefer if everyone who works for any "government" anywhere would quit and find an honest job.
If that is "sour grapes", so be it.
