– Language is deceiving the public about civic and other plans.
– Language conceals the reality of the kinds of lives people are really living and the intent of activities people are engaged in.
– Language refers to civic engagement, but works to disable participatory democracy, or to work against civic education, or to actively create stupidity.
– Language facilitates diversions of funding or diversions of property from places it is needed.
– Language is pre-empting the possibility of alternative futures by “putting words in people’s mouths.”
