Why Do Leftists Eschew The Private Sector?

Because they don't have what it takes to survive.
President Barack Obama in his first autobiography described his few scant months spent doing actual (private sector) work thus:
“Like (I was) a spy behind enemy lines....”

And famously, recently uttered the unbelievable:
“If you’ve got a business - you didn’t build that.  Somebody else made that happen.”
And this President - with this perverse perspective - is too much of an economic Centrist for a whole host of other Leftists.

Leftists exact ever more punitive tax and regulatory policies to ramrod businesses into behaving “better.”  

They appear to believe that starting and operating a successful business is easy, and a license to print money - which should then be redistributed.  They want this money redistributed to the proletariat through government-mandated higher wages and benefits, and to the poor through higher taxes for government welfare programs.

No tax or regulatory price is too high - the private sector can easily absorb all of it and more, and carry on unabated.  

Which raises the question: if it’s so easy to run a business on Leftist principles - why don’t Leftists do it?  Why don’t they open up shop, incorporate all of their absurd notions - and bring the world ever closer to their Utopia?  

The reason they don’t may be that they know the private sector is a hard slog, and they don’t have what it takes to make it happen.
