“Many thanks again to Robert Cheshire! These are of highest professional quality as usual and wordperfect. Robert Cheshire has also written and broadcast two items, one on Nicola Tesla, and shows that all contemporary power and grid systems are due to Tesla.
It is indeed an invaluable guide, for the layman, to assume that anyone who praises Tesla is either not in possession of the true facts, or is a 24ct crackpot. He was rightfully forgotten for a generation, and his current undeserved fame is due entirely to a bunch of pseudoscientist electrical engineers who founded the Tesla Society, and to the ‘opinionated but ignorant’ inhabitants of the internet who swap Tesla ‘facts’ ad nauseam.* The most influential biographies of Tesla were written by journalists, ‘science-writers’ and graphologists … and one knows what trash to expect from them. But many low-level educationalists are seduced: at least one misguided teacher wants to put a bust of Tesla in every American school. Presumably that teacher wants the pupils to become liars, cheats and crackpots. That may help them to make money, but it will be dirty money. It is safe to assume that everything that you hear about Tesla is a lie: he did not ‘invent AC’ (the silliest lie), he was not the first to transfer energy by cable, he did not invent radio, he did not invent the rotary induction motor, he did not discover X-rays, he certainly did not develop ‘free energy’, antigravity or death-rays. He did prove that the Moon does not rotate … but only to his own satisfaction.
*If one wishes to Google Tesla-related information, one should also Google ‘Telsa’ and ‘Tessler’. Yep, Tesla-fans are that stupid!
