Ian Rowe – On Agency and Finding a Middle Ground Between Atomization and Blaming the System
This week on High Noon with Inez Stepman, the indefatigable Ian Rowe joins the pod. Rowe is a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and a visiting fellow with the Woodson Center as part of their 1776 Unites project. He is the author of the new book Agency: The Four Point Plan (F.R.E.E.) for ALL Children to Overcome the Victimhood Narrative and Discover their Pathway to Power, and runs a new set of charter schools in the Bronx based on the four cardinal virtues.
Ian and Inez discussed how perception and ideology can affect kids’ psychology in a very real way, the middle ground between total individualism and a kind of systemic collectivism, and how we can recognize both personal agency and institutional influence on people’s life outcomes. They also dig into what to do when those most influential institutions — like family structure, schools, and others, become weak and corrupted — and how those who have found themselves in the thickets of modern life, without the human and civic supports they desperately need, can nevertheless find a pathway to a positive future.
High Noon is an intellectual download featuring conversations that make possible a free society. The podcast features interesting thinkers from all parts of the political spectrum to discuss the most controversial subjects of the day in a way that hopes to advance our common American future.
Hosted by Inez Stepman of Independent Women’s Forum.
