    After Dark: Emily Jashinsky and Inez Stepman Talk Shifting Coalitions, a Race Against the Clock, and How Self-Definition and Hypernovelity Make Us All Insane

    After Dark: Emily Jashinsky and Inez Stepman Talk Shifting Coalitions, a Race Against the Clock, and How Self-Definition and Hypernovelity Make Us All Insane

    It’s the last Wednesday of the month, which means another episode of High Noon: After Dark with Inez Stepman and The Federalist Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky.
    From the Federalist studio, Jashinsky and Stepman chat about how the GOP could blow the chance voters are giving them and consign us to a continued decline under incompetent and woke institutions. They also discuss a key moment in the shifting coalitions of left and right, predatory universities, and finally, meaning and identity in a postmodern, hypernovel world and how self-definition makes us insane.

    Jeremy Wayne Tate – On How Classical Education Actually Prepares Us for "Adulting"

    Jeremy Wayne Tate – On How Classical Education Actually Prepares Us for "Adulting"

    To celebrate National School Choice Week, High Noon welcomes Jeremy Wayne Tate to sketch out the contours of what is possible outside the current education system. Tate is the CEO of Classical Learning Test, an alternative to the SAT, and has become a hub for the increasing swell of families interested in returning to the classical idea of education.
    Stepman and Tate discussed what the purpose of a good education actually is (hint: not “college and career”), and how our lack of serious education has left us unprepared not just for success, but for the inevitable tragedies and setbacks of adult life itself.

    John Wood, Jr. – On Honest Conversations About Race and the Possibility of Redemption

    John Wood, Jr. – On Honest Conversations About Race and the Possibility of Redemption

    The first High Noon guest of the new year is John Wood, Jr. Wood is a national ambassador for Braver Angels. He’s also a former congressional candidate, a musician, and a writer, speaker, and thinker. John and Inez talk about finding a balance between a constrained vision of human nature and the possibility of genuine reconciliation despite America’s very real racial divisions.
    Woods and Stepman have an honest conversation about the unique struggles, as well as the unique contributions, of black citizens to the United States, and whether any barriers to continued advancement are truly racial or more closely tracking class. They also discuss the fading role of religion in binding together the diverse peoples of America, and the relationship between oppression and great art.

    Rod Dreher – On How to Live with Dignity in a Pre-Totalitarian Society

    Rod Dreher – On How to Live with Dignity in a Pre-Totalitarian Society

    This week on High Noon, Inez Stepman interviews Rod Dreher, senior editor at The American Conservative and author of the book Live Not By Lies: A Manual for Christian Dissidents.
    Live Not By Lies is all about preparing yourself — mentally, spiritually, practically — for the possibility of living as a dissident in a hostile and totalitarian society. Each of Dreher’s points is buttressed by his many interviews with people who have “lived it” under communism in Eastern Europe and Russia.
    Dreher and Stepman discuss critical lessons for our own pre-totalitarian moment, such as where to draw the line to save your job and your integrity, the importance of preserving cultural memory, and the ways in which our developing technological and private tyrannies, if allowed to continue on their current trajectory, will look different from the tyrannies of the 20th century.

    Aaron Sibarium – On the Bureaucratic Mechanisms of Wokeness and How to Deinstitutionalize It

    Aaron Sibarium – On the Bureaucratic Mechanisms of Wokeness and How to Deinstitutionalize It

    This week on High Noon, Inez Stepman interviews Aaron Sibarium, associate editor at Washington Free Beacon and the reporter behind breaking the latest Yale Law School controversies. Stepman questions Sibarium about his focus on the bureaucratic mechanisms of implementing wokeness in institutions, how it became as ubiquitous as it seems to be, and what his reporting suggests about how it might be deinstitutionalized.
    Aaron and Inez also discuss potential unintended consequences of the Civil Rights Act and the right’s uneasy relationship with two of the potential roadblocks to increasing woke bureaucratic power: meritocracy and democracy.
