The real meaning of public and private

The everyday way we use the words “public” and “private” is incorrect. The public means anything related to the government. If the government owns the land, then the land is public. If man owns the land, then the land is private. However, man can be duped into making his property public.

It’s like the title DIRECTOR or VICE PRESIDENT of a COMPANY. PERSON is another title in the company.

A public corporation is one created by the state for political purposes and to act as an agency in the administration of civil government, generally within a particular territory or subdivision of the state, and usually invested, for that purpose, with subordinate and local powers of legislation; such as a county, city, town, or school district. These are also sometimes called “political corporations.”

Private corporations are those founded by and composed of private individuals, for private purposes, as distinguished from governmental purposes, and having no political or governmental franchises or duties. The true distinction between public and private corporations is that the former are organized for governmental purposes, the latter not.

The term “public” has sometimes been applied to corporations of which the government owned the entire stock, as in the case of a state bank. But bearing in mind that “public” is here equivalent to “political,” it will be apparent that this is a misnomer. Again the fact that the business or operations of a corporation may directly and very extensively affect the general public (as in the case of a railroad company or a bank or an insurance company) is no reason for calling it a public corporation. If organized by private persons for their own advantage,

What is PRIVATE?

Affecting or belonging to private individuals, as distinct from the public generally. Not official.


The ownership of tangible and intangible goods by an individual who has exclusive rights over it. The transfer of a private property can take place only by the owner’s consent or through a sale or through its presentation as a gift.


These are the basic rights that a person has to enjoy their own property, to own property and to go where they want to go, etc.
