Edison is unpopular these days.

Fair enough.  I come from New Jersey where Edison is heralded, while also shown electrocuting elephants, although it’s explained in the context of the PT Barnum atmosphere of the late 19th century.  [they were all doing crazy stuff – scientists and engineers and inventors, just to get press].

I think he gets a milder treatment in NJ education than in other parts of the world, where he’s usually portrayed as, well, the way he’s usually portrayed nowadays.

It’s ok.  I’m of the minority opinion and I understand that.

You don’t have to mute the post.  I took a guess that you’d be pro-Tesla, anti-Edison – pro-lone-engineer, anti-corporate/industry.  I have tendencies in that direction as well, which is why I’ve been researching the unpopular opinions.
