to refer to this tendency succinctly. "Reification" is a
 
 
 
feature of several mental illnesses (although this concept
 
 
 
itself is a bit of a reification--see Foucault), and insofar
 
 
 
as it often accompanies severely ideological political stances,
 
 
 
there may eventually develop a consensus that these are not
 
 
 
two separate phenomena, one treatable by medicine and the other
 
 
 
requiring such accommodations as may prove fatal to democratic
 
 
 
societies,--but one.
 
 
 
And one is also allowed to ask the question: what would
 
 
 
"Lojbanic reification" be?
