    Nikola Tesla wanted to create free, wireless energy using earth as ground.

    Once JP Morgan, Westinghouse et.al. caught wind of his non-profit venture in New York, all financing stopped.  The financial backers wanted nothing to do with the genius if it meant cutting into their profit.

    Tesla(the father of alternating current), eventually died penniless.

    Only God knows what would have happened if Tesla allowed all his thoughts to become reality.

     



    Is this a criticsm of capitalism?

     

    Aside from that, I'm not so sure Tesla's ideas would have led to any such reality.

     




     

    Personally, I'm pro-capitalism...what's the alternative?  Tesla was more interested in free utilities for the world.  His thoughts and ideas were always based on helping humanity and not the monetary gain like his adversary Thomas Edison.

    If you've done any reading about him, it's just interesting to think what could have been achieved.  Society, as it now exists, would be completely different....even more so than alternating current.

    In essence, Tesla was light years ahead of his time and, at that time, I think capitalism did interefere.  It would be interesting if his genius was available in todays world.

     



    I don't understand. If capitalism interfered with a potentially better world, why are you in favor of it? If something as vital to our economy as electricity should be free, why stop there? If the profit motive does not always bring out the best in man, how can capitalism be better than any alternative?

     

     




     

    It's idealism vs. reality.

    Realistically, we don't have an effective or efficient way to produce sufficient energy without interference from some group.

    Tesla had ideas to make it a reality.

    This wouldn't necessarily mean the end of capitalism.  Capitalism could still exist with free energy.  Actually, it would probably thrive....manufacturing etc.

    In Tesla's time, capitalism interfered with his potential.

    Of course he does. And I agree. What's to miss? His being wrong on 100% of his baseball positions? The name calling? The egregious right wing politics he manages to slip into nearly every post? Good riddance I say. What say you T-Baller?

    Why don't you? And one usually ends a question with a question mark (?), not multiple exclamation points.

    It seems putting Special Ops on the ground to flush this guy Softy / Stiffy (not sure who he really is) was a flawed strategy for some?  You lost a lot of good men!  Lots of collateral damage!  You guys better stick to drone attacks.  Just like the hunt for Bin Laden, ground troops never should have been used.  He's just not worth losing another good young man or woman.  :)
