Tax on share dealing in Switzerland

Can someone please explain to me why in Switzerland they don't just tax share dealing as income? Seems weird that it's either not taxed for small personal gains, or subject to Capital Gains Tax for a whopping 50% if you go over their line to be classed as a business. Why can't they just make it simpler and count it as overall earnings?
