Rene Girard is worth studying.

If desire is the prime mover in society, where is it from? Mimetic desire.

Once you know that, you see it everywhere. In others, and in yourself.

Then you can be more careful who you admire and what desire you put out in the world.

Holiday reading: 

Paying attention to what other people have is searching for something that others seek in you too.

These things turn into halls of mirrors. Better not to play at all.

Play your own infinite game.
