Decadent

"As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate, action: you liberate a city by destroying it. Words are to confuse, so that at election time people will solemnly vote against their own interests."
--Gore Vidal,
"The Decline and Fall of the American Empire" (1992)
