That's true, although at the same time, Edison pretty much did everything in his power to destroy Tesla, no?
Many scientists of his time acknowledged his genius including Edison himself and the likes of Marconi who begged him to allow him to observe him in his laboratory.
That was a comment on Tesla NOT Einstein.
Also that long post are his patents...that may not be clear.
Yup, Edison backed by Morgan backed by Rothchild
did everything in their power to stop Tesla
and his ideas for liberating man from the
drudgery of work via better a better energy
