Today's Hypothetical

Let's say you're an avid lover of trees. You hate to see them cut down unnecessarily, you've got a paperless office, and you spend your days advocating for protecting forests and getting other people to do the same. You are, proudly, reverently, a "tree hugger." Great! Good for you.

Now let's say the government mandates that every non-profit organization in your category [501(c)(3)] must print out their tax forms on new (not recycled) paper from old-growth forests and that they must pay Would you fight it? Would you find this regulation intrusive? for said forms out of their own pockets. What are your likely reactions? Would you find this mandate offensive, even immoral? Just throwin' it out there.
