Well leaving aside the validity of a Tax Authority will such a capability.

It they went through due legal process and determined that you were the legal owner of that house and that you had done something wrong under the law that merited the removal of your property, then unless I could show a legal instrument that showed that despite this the house was still mine, no I would not have a legal basis for complaint.

As for 'can you cry'  i think people always have the right to cry (unless of course you are a woman and in politics.) As for the ability to cry, that is an individual thing that often has medical causes.

Personally I thought the knives analogy was a good one.
