pages 222 to 235 are chapter twenty three, which is 'the political public sphere and the transformation of the liberal constitutional state into a social welfare state'.

it begins with:

'the characteristic imbalance between those functions that the political public sphere actually fulfills today and those that, in the context of the changed relation between public sphere and private realm, might be expected of it in relation to the needs of a democratically organized society becomes palpable wherever the transformation of the liberal constitutional state into the so-called social welfare state is explicitly legislated and, often enough, anticipated in its intention by the letter and spirit of constitutional institutions.'

which of course the next thirteen pages elaborates upon, and so forth.
