Edison must have been referring to taking advantage of some dumb farmer, perhaps coning him out of his land, sort of like he did Nikola Tesla out of his inventions and took credit for.I guess having westinghouse and other wealthy barins backing him up made it like taking candy from a baby.Now wonder N.Y.C has an electric company name after him ,called Con Edison.
