Has there been a "memetic collapse"?

I want to know if there has actually been a "memetic collapse" along the lines described here and here.

Does anyone have evidence or arguments in either direction? Or even ideas for how we would be able to tell?

State of the Union reading level over time has declined quite a lot.

Written sentences are getting shorter and less recursive over time: 1, 2, 3, 4.
