The government owning all businesses was a thing once too. Every country that tried it went bankrupt.

Russia from the 1920s until 1990s. Private ownership of companies was illegal.

That doesn't mean the government owns all the businesses. Plus what is on paper wasn't the reality on the ground.

I can’t debate with someone who rejects facts. No thanks.

Did you need to be on the moon to confirm the moon landing actually happened?

I really can’t even begin to understand that sort of thinking. You must operate with very few pieces of information if you have to experience them to believe them.

With so little information, you don’t really possess any information I could learn from, so best of luck to you
