This is why using the "constitution" as your blue print for what is acceptable or not is not productive.
Don't ask yourself if it is direct or indirect. Ask yourself if it is just or unjust. Is it theft or is it service? Is it right or wrong?
Those are the important questions. Not the interpretation of specific words through the filter of the court.
Think for yourself, and then the rest becomes irrelevant.
