Let's Build a Goddamn Tesla Museum!

Lets read about something that isnt doom and gloom.

Hell, its about time! Someone started up a fund you can donate to that would buy Tesla's laboratory so it can be turned into a museum.

No kidding, the amount donated seems to currently be rising by the minute(or however fast they update which seems like a minute or two). Only less than 2 days in and they already have over half the amount needed.

This place has basically laid undisturbed since it was abandoned. There has been mention of tunnels that run under the place that still contain alot of equipment which was left there.

For someone of such importance, he has been practically forgotten in many ways. There isnt actually a Tesla museum in the US which makes it all the more sad that someone such as Tesla has been so ignored.

Let us honor the father of the 21st century Nikola Tesla!

This is a brilliant idea whose time has come . I believe we could awaken the sleeping giant that is the american citizenry by sharing N.Tesla's story. He was literally driven crazy and disenfranchised by J.P.Morgan because he wanted to give away free energy to the people for the benifit of humanity. Tesla's inventions or rather discoveries as he refered to them from radio, radar, remote controll, wireless transmission, alternating current, cellular transmission , have been credited to everyone but him. I believe if people were informed about how technology is kept from us and buried or rolled out as slowly as possible to bleed every last penny from the public we'd grow the liberty movement a million fold. Wardencliff, the site of the planned museum, is where Tesla planned to showcase his wireless (and thus gratis) worlwide transmission of electricity. Imagine this, harness the electical energy that surrounds us (the earths core a neg.charge/the ionisphere or upper atmosphere pos.charge,the the struggle between the two pulsed out through a series of capacitors and cells to hold charge)and share it w/all mankind for free! THE END OF FOSSIL FUELS! Not to mention the loss in revenue to J.P.Morgan (and thus the Rothschilds, his puppet masters)in copper/rubber used to hard wire the planet. The very same forces that held back this great man still cripple us all as a whole. I highly recomend the book "The Wizard" to illustrate the "hidden hand" I refer to, enforcing the status quo. How else could one explain when N.T. brought radar to the US gov they told him they'd pass as it had no military applications.(They use it a little bit now!)In fact our governmant only reluctantly aknowledged N.Tesla's contribution briefly when they didn't want to pay royalties to Marconi for radio transmission patents. Then, seceratary of the navy Teddy Roosevelt pointed out Marconi had violated 9 of Tesla's patents.I don't believe Tesla was compensated either.I could and do go on for days about this great man and the travesty of his legacy thus far. NIKOLA TESLA, my man.

Aaron Russo, Nikola Tesla, Ron Paul, I'm jus' sayin'

Tesla was in fact

Tesla was in fact retroactively granted the patent to the radio a number of recent years ago.
As for his tech, the government still holds to this day much of his papers(which it seized upon his death) and it is not known everything he came up with; I think one of the greatest losses we will never know the full extent of is when his lab burned down. Its hard to tell today(in many cases) what might be fact or fiction regarding him and his technology.
I think the only class I ever had which even bothered to mention him was in college on electrical power. It was only a few paragraphs at most in the very first chapter and the teacher only touched on it. You hear plenty about edison, but almost nothing about Tesla. One of the bad things here is that most of the things edison came up with have been superceded or have a Tesla equivalent. While different things Tesla came up with are still in use today or based directly on his tech, I think the only thing that edison came up with that is still in use is the basic incandescent light bulb and thats rapidly fading away.(athough I think an edison created battery was being researched more recently)

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.
