So I guess then that companies are started and run by dolphins because by your definition they can't be free people. Maybe we should live in a country where only the poor get to make the decisions. It seems like that is the way that people want it today, to let those that aren't capable of starting a business or running a business take over the businesses.
If your idea of letting the people, ie: politicians, take over big business then we are all headed for complete and utter bankruptcy. Those yo yo's can't manage to run a damn thing. Take a look at what they currently control. Every aspect of government run programs that have a counterpart in the free private market are being beaten handily by big business.
Example: USPS - UPS - FED EX
More people go to UPS & FED EX than they do USPS. There is a reason for that. There is a reason that privately run companies are sought out and fair better than government ones. Even people who complain about the "Big Business" people do business with them.
Government run programs run "by the people" fail!
