Non-exclusive

The will to give ourselves to others and "welcome" them, to readjust our identities to make space for them, is prior to any judgment about others, except that of identifying them in their humanity.  The will to embrace precedes any "truth" about others and any construction of their "justice."  This will is absolutely indiscriminate and strictly immutable; it transcends the moral mapping of the social world into "good" and "evil."
