Lets not forget that Tesla Declined to collect royalties on most of his alternating current patents, which would have made him the wealthiest person
on the planet in a little over a year.
He didnt want AC to be only available to the rich, he wanted to help people have reliable power.
It kind of makes me mad though, because had he kept his hands in AC, the power companies might not have turned in to the "charge any damn thing we
want" type of corporate monopolies.

There are HUNDREDS of threads about how people have been Killed or silenced when trying to do things pertaining to free energy.
WHY would anyone give something away for free when they can just as easily charge you for it.
essentially, it would be too difficult to meter wireless power consumption, which means it would be hard to charge people, so the power companies will
continue to do everything in their power to squash things like that.
Tesla never even finished Wardenclyffe Tower, which would have been a fairly definitive test of his wireless power transmission through the earth
itself as a conductor, though it should be noted that he was able to transmit wirelessly over 50 Kilometers at his boulder Colorado Lab.
