In the USA the idea that private sector monopolies are much worse than public monopolies is tantamount to heresy. Only a socialist or communist would say that.

A private sector monopoly is impossible anyway, because the magic of the market will make sure it's always disrupted by innovative startups. So, since they are theoretically impossible, it's best to avoid looking for them, lest one's eyes be traumatized by a vision of an Eldritch Horror.
