Growing importance of Klartext

I like the word Klartext, but it conveys a utterly disturbing trend. People trading instant gratification with the act of deliberations. I agree politicians and intellectuals alike use the kind of language which will put San Francisco's crooked street to shame. I think Greenspan and George Bush are the champions of two extremes.

Dangerous trend to watchout is that increasingly masses are loosing patience with the complicated issues and whoever has "humorous", "simple" and "fresh" view point usually walks away victorious in the public debates.

Could this be an offshoot of the information overload we all are facing?
