It's all Thomas Edison's fault anyway; if you wanted to EFFECTIVELY jab against capitalism, that would be the way to go. Just a helpful tip from a libertarian giving some First Amendment sanctioned advice to a friend whose ideals I may not support but fully accept his right to have.
When the American and Communist powers were seeking the design blue prints/ knowledge to build his infamous 'death ray' instead of giving them both complete blue prints, he actually mixed the blue prints up and sent half of them to the Communists, and half to the American government, so they would never really understand how to build it completely...He saw the corruption in both the Communist and Capitalist powers. For the reason of his unwillingness to bow down to Communism, he probably would have been executed/ tortured to death...Just like tens of millions of others, many being educated intellectuals. The Communists weren't exactly known for superior technological advancement...No doubt they were the main hand in destroying Germany, the most technologically advanced society in the world.
You need to have not only a good idea but a way to profit from it. Tesla had a brilliant idea but a horrible business model. Also Paris Hilton is rich because of her father who built and runs the most successful hotel chain in the world.
