Good! so now we get some investors together, study and duplicate
Tesla's work and take over the power industry. We could convert
energy to credits so those that use the most energy pay the
people to transmit the energy. We in turn buy their products....

Quite frankly I don't think we'll ever have free energy even if it were possible. We have to many greedy people in this world who want power and money over all. I wish we didn't have to worry about that but that's the way it's always going to be.

I think a little revolution is good for society every once in a while, resulting in new industries and new jobs and new paradigms to replace the old, worn out ones. It also takes power away from long established and corrupt institutions, which is balancing and progressive.

If a "free" energy device will cost me my job and economy...then no thanks. I'd rather keep up with the current situation then wave good by to the power grid, my job, and my computer.
The day will come when, after harnessing space,
the winds, the tides, and gravitation,
we shall harness for God the energies of love.
And on that day,
for the second time in the history of the world,
we shall have discovered fire.

No, it's not the fault of some mega-conspiracy (otherwise we wouldn't have solar cells and wind energy farms and hydroelectricty and geothermal plants -- and there's of course no way to stop such a thing from being developed in another country.) It's the fault of the physics.

This is the type of mentality that has prevented many alternative energy sources from proliferating. And I don't just mean free energy devices, even things like electric cars have yet to see widespread acceptance.
churning out free enrgy devices would be very very bad, especially if they could replace oil over night.
My personal thought on free energy is that everything in the universe operates on mechanisms related to harmonic resonance.
