    Ok, but it must not go to far. You should not impose indirect taxes greater than those necessary to compensate for negative externalities.

    All I said was that an indirect taxation should be put at levels reasonable to account for the negative externalities. To simply try to extinguish a good because it is not "politically correct" should be reserved for substances such as narcotics or goods which can be directly linked to organised crime.
