Capitalist businesses are not private. This idea we have that they are "private businesses" or controlled by private ownership does not turn out to be true. It may be that we are no longer looking at every word in the sentences. But, at any rate, really I have changed, and created a view in which I no longer think that way.
What I am saying is that it does not make sense to call typical the capitalist business, in ordinary life, private. And that is a distinct statement from another type of statement. What I mean is that I am not saying that these businesses should not be private, or that they should be more transparent, etc. those are another sort of statement.
I am noting was the case is, actually. Not what “should” be.
