How can the private sector be any of those?  The difference between
the private sector and the public sector is persuasion versus
coercion.  Collectivism of any denomination requires force.  The
private sector cannot use force - that is reserved for the public
and criminal sectors.

Fortunately, our Constitution prevents you from having your way by
force.  If you recall, we're not a democracy, but a republic,
protected from the tyranny of the majority.

consider it a high compliment.
