There Is No Them

In Evangelium Gaudium 53Pope Francis explains that we must be concerned not just with exploitation but with exclusion. The excluded are “thrown away;” it is as if they do not exist as human persons, they simply do not count.  They are invisible – and yet, their voices call out to the Lord – and we, like Cain, respond “Am I my Brother’s keeper?  Am I my Sister’s keeper?” There is much we can learn from prayerfully reflecting on Pope Francis’s repeated use of the Cain and Able story…but, for now I’d us to prayerfully reflect on what U2′s new song “Invisible” can teach us about human dignity and the one human family. The song includes two refrains and both of them poetically push us to a deeper understanding  justice, inequality, participation, and solidarity.

There is no them can mean so many different things, its quite an interesting term given to a way of excluding or including, depending on your point of view on the topic, for example someone screaming to be heard among the masses, they are crying out for the same things that we all need to survive.

 

Then on the other hand it could be a way of strengthening a brotherhood, such as a band and its fans against conspirators or non fans etc.
