Nikola Tesla defunded by J.P. Morgan and Westinghouse

Nikola Tesla was defunded and basically reduced to destitution by his investors who pulled out on him, J.P. Morgan and Westinghouse and so forth, who pulled out on him when they realized that the worldwide energy system that he was trying to develop was something that could not be metered and monetized. And this was, of course in the age of the discovery of petroleum and Rockefeller as the first magnate of the petroleum industry and there was a killing to be made in oil and other non-renewable resources. So Tesla was reduced to destitution and misery for wanting to be a benefactor of humanity.

New Thinking Allowed with Jeffrey Mishlove Jason Reza Jorjani, PhD, is a philosopher and author of Prometheus and Atlas, World State of Emergency, Lovers of Sophia, Novel Folklore: The Blind Owl of Sadegh Hedayat, Iranian Leviathan: A Monumental History of Mithra’s Abode, and Prometheism. Here he describes many facets associated with the archetype of Prometheus: the creator of humanity, the rebel, the trickster, the martyr, the wise titan, the visionary, and the daemonic force behind science and technology. He argues that if humanity does not become conscious of Prometheus’ mesmeric power, we will continue to blindly fall under the spell of our technological power – to our own detriment. He maintains that a deeper understanding of Prometheism is an antidote to the pitfalls of either fatalism or authoritarianism. (Recorded on July 31, 2020)
