The 1% have been very clever, Orwellian even, in their use of language. "Intellectual property," for instance. That ideas or expressions of ideas is the same thing as a piece of land is a stunningly clever bit of language management. And don't get me started on "free markets" like the one that lets Bank of America move 70 odd trillion dollars of risk onto the taxpayers.

My heart goes out to Oakland.
