    Since our common currency is a public utility, it can be argued that any entity, singular or plural, which uses U.S. currency in its relations is, ipso facto, not a private enterprise. If people want to be private, let them rely on handshakes and word of mouth. But, whenever a transaction involves currency, just as when a marital contract is registered with a public official, the matter is no longer private.

    That said, privacy is, in any event, a social construct since, for it to be realized, it has to be recognized by someone else.
    A person can be solitary on his/her own, but privacy depends on someone else exercising restraint and staying out of another person's space and affairs.
