If you take the private profits (money that goes to the shareholder who did nothing besides being born rich), you threaten the concept of capitalism. The failures of the private sector, in many minds, is an acceptable price to pay to allow shareholders to continue skimming off the top. Its such skimming that ensures capitalism is alive and well.

It has NOTHING to do with actual performances or dysfunction of the system, but rather the structure of the system itself. Sorta strange
