It is a mythical word. It is not possible to speak of people logically, because that would mean making only a description. In order to understand a people, to understand what are the values of this people, one must enter into the spirit, into the heart, into the work, into the history, and into the myth of its tradition. This distinction is important. The people is not a logical category, it is a mythical category.
Not mystical, but mythical. And do you know why? Because they did not understand what mythical people means. Francis quickly found out about the word change. But this is a mistake. People is not a logical category, nor is it a mystical category, if we understand it in the sense that everything the people does is good or in the sense that the people is an angelic category.
It is a mythical category, if anything. I repeat: mythical. People is an historical and mythical category. The people is made in a process, with the sights set on a common objective and project.
History is built by this process of generations that succeed each other within a people. It takes a myth to understand the people. When you explain what a people is, you use logical categories because you have to explain it: they are needed, of course. But you do not explain in this way the meaning of belonging to the people. The word people has something more that cannot be explained in a logical manner. Being part of the people is being part of a shared identity made of social and cultural bonds.
And this is not an automatic thing, on the contrary: it is a slow, difficult process toward a shared project. It has given Pope Francis an opportunity to clarify further the meaning and roots of his populism. The Myth of the Chosen People As for his inspiration, Rodolfo Kusch , it is interesting that the pope should have named him. For this reason too he found himself at the margins of the culture of the dominant elites and instead found an admirer in Bergoglio.
Go here to read the rest. Kusch was part of the philosophy of liberation, a movement popular among leftist Latin American intellectuals that is a form of third worldism with a Latin American twist.
Go here to read more about it. It basically is a soothing explanation for Latin American Leftists as to why South America has been such a failure when compared to the United States. It is very long on theory and very short on facts.
