Quote #99: law and ideology

"It is admittedly somewhat ironic that legal certainty increases precisely in virtue of an element that, although moderating the ideal demands on legal theory, is the most susceptible to ideological distortions." - Jurgen Habermas, Between Facts and Norms (transl. by William Rehg, MIT Press: 1998), pg. 221.
