Afraid to Privatize

Why are there so many people out there afraid to privatize? I always just thought it was an irrational fear of the unknown -- it works fine as is, leave it alone mentality (the 'if it ain't broke' approach).

Now, I read why so many have feared this and even moved against it in many instances. It is from stories like this one.

And its not just from water either. It is from just about anything and everything. The underlying assumption is that the government ought to be involved in some way.

Question: why do we feel that the private sector or proverbial "free market" should provide these goods and services, rather than the public sector?
