Philo T Farnsworth II was one of American’s greatest inventors.
He invented the worlds first television when he was 17 years old, beating out RCA, the worlds biggest radio corporation, something that no one ever thought possible. The story of Farnsworth is the story of the suppression of energy technologies in America. No conspiracy theory, just business as usual. This is an important thing to understand and thus the story of Farnsworth is important.
Wallstreet threatened to kill ITT’s stock should they continue to fund their golden boy Farnsworth. It worked and funding was cut and ITT’s CEO was replaced with one that turned ITT into a holding company for everything from fast food to rental cars rather than a technology company. The threat and all future threats from ITT were eliminated. Those that continue to use the phrase “conspiracy theory” should study corporate history and see that it is a daily occurrence.
