How much agency does this chair have?

This chair that I’m sitting on has no agency. None. Zip. Zero. It has no ability to act, only to be acted upon.

Human beings, on the other hand, have agency. Tons of it. We have the capacity to act upon things, not just simply be acted upon.

Choices are all around us. We live in the perfect environment for agency to thrive.

The world is in no short supply of opportunities and choices. It’s people who are insufficient in taking them.
