opacity (from the Oxford Dictionary of English)

n. [mass noun] the quality of lacking transparency of translucence:  thinner paints need black added to increase opacity.

  • the quality of being obscure in meaning:  the difficulty and opacity in Barthes’ texts.

<ORIGIN> mid 16th century:  from French opacité, from Latin opacitas, from opacus ‘darkened’.

The Republican Party seeks to bring opacity back into government.
