Self-Made Individuals: A Model for Middle Eastern Nations (Show 39: 14 April 2015)

NIKOLA TESLA, A GIANT OF A MAN.  HE WAS A NOBODY IN HIS HOMETOWN OF CROATIA (FORMER YUGOSLAVIA WHERE LATE 20TH CENTURY SAW RE-BIRTH OF HUMAN CONCENTRATION CAMPS).  UPON HIS ARRIVAL IN AMERICA IN 1884, USING HIS PATENT RIGHTS GUARANTEED UNDER THE U.S. CONSTITUTION, HE LIT UP THE WORLD THROUGH HIS INVENTION OF ALTERNATE-CURRENT ELECTRICITY.
