I think you are confused. The AGPL and my own views do NOT say that
anyone is forced to distribute. Period.

If you do *private* things with any AGPL or other cultural works or
programs, you can do anything you want at all, period.

The only thing AGPL requires is giving others freedom *if* you choose to
convey / give access to the software to them over the internet. You
don't have to convey the software to others. You can keep it private all
you like. AGPL doesn't stop that essential freedom. There's no
distribution requirement. The only requirements are keeping the free
terms *if* you choose to distribute.
