At the same time that Thomas Edison was commercializing electricity to be used in every household in America, Nikola Tesla was working just as hard in competition with the inventor in creating free energy generation. In fact, there has been much debate as to whether Tesla would have been able to introduce electricity to the marketplace if he would have had the same financial backers as Edison.
Many Tesla devotees believe that had Tesla been as financially savvy and friendly with the Big Establishment of the Rockefellers and Morgans in his time that he would have been supported in his development of free energy generators. In the end Edison won the race for making electricity possible for the common person, but Tesla continued to explore various ways to create free energy generation.
Tesla’s invention, a fuel free generator that was called the Tesla Free Energy Generator, was so revolutionary at the time of its conception that many people considered it illogical and impossible; most people continue to even today. However, it was mainly the US government that had issue with Tesla’s inventions and ideas related to creating free energy generators that would make energy free for every household. In fact, it is we
ll noted that all supporting documents and blueprints in Tesla’s home and workplace were seized by the US government immediately following Tesla’s death.
While everyone around the world has heard about Edison, Tesla was shuttered into the shadows. Many fans of Tesla feel that this is because the government wanted to keep a tight grip on the commercialization of electricity in order to generate a constant stream of revenue into the marketplace. If Tesla’s ideas had ever taken hold in society, free energy generation would certainly become the wave of the future as people chose to produce their own energy, which would be a boon to the global economy. Therefore a tight grip was placed over Tesla during his lifetime as well as post mortem in hopes, perhaps, that the theories and concepts that this inventor produced would eventually disappear.
