deliteracy
 n.— «The very purpose of this series is to combat what I call the ‘deliteracy’ of current and common culture, i.e.- the active dumbing down of art and discourse. Nowadays, many magazines that used to interview people of substance and ideas would rather speak with the latest pop babe of the month, or the current politician whose garbage is grabbing the most headlines.» —“The Dan Schneider Interview 3: Pete Hamill, 8/07″ by Dan Schneider Cosmoetica Aug. 8, 2007.
