That something is to illustrate, yet one more time, a key argument of this essay: when an entire discipline like the "law" of the academy is constructed as a series of legitimations and rationalizations designed to avoid taking cognizance of its own violent and destructive character, when it is designed in such a way as to destroy indiscriminately new, nonconforming thought, it is easy to become ethically disoriented.
Indeed, if, like a judge, one is continually engaged in destroying the worlds of meaning of others, if one is continually engaged in a practice fraught with violence, then one's authorization and legitimation needs are likely to be intense.
Barker devotes a chapter to each of three levels of political relations in which legitimation can be seen to occur: rulers legitimate themselves to themselves; they legitimate themselves to their peers and close subordinates; and they legitimate themselves to their subjects.
Legitimation here refers to the things that rulers actually do; Barker is looking at politics as a domain of human practices, and by and large steers clear of prescriptive statements.
