"You may recall, during the Bush reign, pollster and focus-group maven Frank Luntz invented 'climate change,' the linguistically neutered -- and for the oil industry the politically preferable -- term for 'global warming.' Luntz is a smoke vendor. In Marxist jargon he is in the business of generating 'false consciousness.' His mission: Obscure the fault lines in American society, and distract attention from the structures of wealth and power." (01/19/12)
