" 3. To take or assume for one's own use; appropriate: co-opted the criticism by embracing it. 4. To neutralize or win over (an independent minority, for example) through assimilation into an established group or culture: co-opt rebels by giving them positions of authority." http://www.bartleby.com/61/50/C0625000.html
