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. This might happen if the man acts as an agent or officeholder of the government and does business as this officeholder. That office is called a PERSON. It’s like the title DIRECTOR or VICE PRESIDENT of a COMPANY. PERSON is another title in the company.

The phrase “open to the public” actually means open to government officers and employees. What I really want to know is if the business is open to the private.

On the Federal Reserve dollar bill, it reads, “This is legal tender for all debts, public and private.” This means one can use it to settle a debt between living people in a non-governmental transaction and also to pay taxes or to settle accounts between government entities.

I once read a website comment that said something similar to that if I was going to ask thou to bring all your shirts, I wouldn’t need to specify, “white and blue” shirts, since I said bring “all shirts”. However, because the worlds of public and private are so distinct, even though we gloss over this distinction, the dollar bill explicitly tells people it can also be used in the private.

From the YouTube comment pasted below, I learned more about this topic:


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.

Here is the start of the website, Living in the Private:

EVERY natural man and woman is born “in the private”. Whereas the State is public, and therefore its Public Servants, and its legal fiction creations are “in the public”, including its artificial legal “persons”.

A man or woman can either “live” “in the private”, or “act” “in the public”. However …

We are trained from an early age to accept a higher authority as normal. Most people exist in a culture of submission and conformity, allowing numerous aspects of their lives to be controlled by the Government. The populace is manipulated to become dependent (debt-money), and conditioned to become fearful (racism, terrorism, and wars). The manner and appearance of “authority” is usually intimidating by design, while the language of legal fiction commerce (Legalese) is deceptive.

You are indoctrinated to “act” in the “role” of an artificial legal “person”, which is a creation of the State and a debtor serving as “surety” for the corporate debt of YOURNATION (INC.).
