Holistically Fighting Robots with Tessa Lena

Today’s guest Tessa Lena was born in Moscow just before the fall of the USSR. Her story is one of tragic joy. She’s the most paradoxical person I’ve ever talked to. I get a bit dumbstruck a few times in this interview.

I’m fairly convinced that Tessa has whatever trait it is that separates saints and mystics from normal people. In another age, she probably would have been renowned for her miracles (or burned at the stake for being a witch). Speaking with her was a bit overwhelming. I’m not sure if it comes through in the recording.

I hope you get as much out of this conversation as I did at the time. Either way, I hope you read Tessa’s pieces linked below and subscribe to her Substack to receive everything she publishes.

Join me at Thad Russell’s Renegade University. His postmodernism course is available on replay now. Check out the other offerings to enroll in current and future courses. I think you’ll be particularly interested in what’s coming up in March, a course with CTRL+Pew.

Liberty Classroom

I’ve renewed my Basic Membership to Tom Woods’s Liberty Classroom so many times that I finally just sprung for the lifetime Master Membership. I recommend you do the same. You’ll get unlimited access to courses on history, economics, political theory, logic, and even literature taught by liberty-loving professors from colleges and universities around the world. It’s the antidote to the cathedral.
