For Husserl, the lifeworld that we as individuals experience every day is, essentially, as co-subjective solidification of the values, commodities and structures of our society. Habermas discussed the concept further when he argued the idea of the colonization of the lifeworld; that is, that the ruling entities in our society (for Americans and much of the Western world, the state and the economy) have with their ideas, colonized us and the public sphere. In this article, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/bonnie-kavoussi/we-still-are-our-jobs_b_4247999.html, the author discusses how Americans once loved their jobs, how our nation was once filled with people who possibly worked too much, but at least that was because they actually had jobs they wanted and enjoyed – jobs that helped them define themselves. However, she goes on to say that this is no longer the case. Americans are still primarily ruled by their jobs, but that this is no longer an investment of choice, but rather by need, just to survive in an increasingly rough economy controlled by employers (i.e., owners). As Habermas amended Husserl’s argument through a lens of government and economic control of people’s every day perception and identity, he would likely identify the argument in this article a prime example of the common people interacting and identifying through a place of economic oppression, rather than having a healthy public sphere of community dialogue. Unfortunately, this idea only illustrates how people are losing power rather than gaining power, as the distinction between the owners and the workers in this country becomes more and more distinct.
