|Brocker I 687
Language/Barber: Politics is always about the question "What should we do? Individual goals would be reformulated through their public theming towards a "mutual language of public goods". (1)
((s)VsBarber: not every problem can be reformulated in a "language of public goods". This should not be the aim of a society form either. E.g. psychotherapy, self-discovery etc. It would be an expression of extreme reification to demand that language should be oriented towards the form of public goods. See Reification.
