I need to clear up your meaning here. Social Shaping is a weak argument if used in favor of taxes? If so, I think I am in violent agreement.

Unfortunately, "social shaping" is increasing becoming the shape of taxes. At that point the "consent of the shaped" needs to be a serious consideration. Case in point our whole discussion point here: Can the 2A (as a supposed Right) be effectively "social-shaped" out of existence by deliberate use of the tax code?
