    Of propaganda terminology formerly known as the Ownership society and Personal Responsiblity Era under Bush Jr.

    Just a new spin off  Orwellian wordsmithing in the continuous Classwar the wealthy very serious people aka villagers and media enablers have been waging for decades against the 99%
