Your argument is...

it's good punish people for buying for buying new goods with a tax levied by the State, in order to force them into a second hand black market?

Black Markets are wonderful, but your suggestion that government forcing people to pay consumption taxes with the threat of violence is permitable in order to drive people towards black markets is wholly immoral, and inconsistent with the Non-aggression Principle.

If you are suggesting purposely using State coercion as a means of driving people into black markets, not only is that batshit insane, it is morally reprehensible.

I think it would be a good thing if more people avoided paying taxes to the State, but advocating for the State to tax is completely contradictory to that goal.

They wouldn't have to avoid the tax in the first place if there was no tax, that it a total non sequitur.

You don't advocate for a tax in order to avoid a tax.
