We have been misled maybe even lied to?

Like ruby ridge where the folk hero was on welfare most his life and of course never served in the military.

Don't you ever wonder why
In spite of all that's wrong here
There's still so much that goes so right
And beauty abounds?

The thunder rolls and the baby sighs
And the rain comes down
Don't you wanta thank someone for this?

Nikola Tesla was way above others like Edison. Edison was first a businessman. Second a scientist/inventor. Edison liked DC current, for everything. AC was the future. Edison tried to prove that AC was dangerous. He pretty much tried to ruin Tesla. Maybe he did, because Tesla died broke.

Tesla made piles of money but spent many years and $$ working on wireless lighting. We still don't have that today. He spent all he had with success and failures. In his later years he lived in a series of hotels and left a string of unpaid bills behind him.

Not on subject but he looked a lot like Groucho Marx but with a real mustache.

There’s a ton of “Tesla was so great” commentary in the last few years and Edison was a sham and thief sentiment lately. I’m curious how much of that was the case, versus the current flavor of the month is Tesla motors and how much of current electric cars is driving the emotion of Tesla the guy being so great. Maybe he was, maybe not, I don’t know. But it almost feels like wokism and cancel culture.

Because of Edison and Westinghouse, very few even know who Tesla is. Every time you turn on a light, it is due to the genius of Tesla, not Edison.

I know my dad made a [bleep] load on the Tesla stock he just sold.
