Let’s copy and paste

As a professor at Stanford, René Girard uncovered a devastating truth.

We don’t want things, we want to be things. We are creatures of mimicry. We are evolutionarily supercharged to do one thing better than any other species - learn by watching and copying others.

What’s the most important thing we learn? How to want.

And what we want is to belong.
