'the world fashioned by the mass media is a public sphere in appearance only...'
this bit begins on page 171 and continues to 175, which is a bit too much for me to just type up in the form of one giant note. (you think, sometimes like i do, that i might be better off doing, i dunno, more coherent notes. but it's not true. i don't. i never have. mwahaha. heh. ah well.)
the first bit was taken from p 170-1.
habermas. say it. chant it. make love to it. you know, the more you say it, the less it becomes an entity.
