“Our response to refugees unveils our propensity to retreat and withdraw in order to protect ‘our’ property or ‘our’ way of life, thereby turning place from gift to possession and rendering refugees as bare life. Our response to refugees unveils the deeply embedded economy of scarcity and equivalence that informs Western society. It is an economy that refuses the possibility of a generative, over-abundant eschatological future and conforms to the logic of fate rather than faith.”
