But without taxation – every government service is paid for on a “user pay” basis – where would the money for those primary school scholarships come from? (Sorry to go off topic…)
Is the government actually opposed to Uber per se? Is the government actually opposed to foreign companies operating in Taiwan? The government’s argument is that Uber refuses to obey the law. If it obeyed the law, would it no longer be Uber?
If Uber believes it is obeying the law, it can of course sue the government. If it exhausts all the types of appeals that are possible within Taiwan and is still not satisfied, it can turn to the international community and expose the hideous violation of its rights, discrimination against foreigners and all that.
