George Soros: Billionaire Philanthropist

The NY Times recently released an article about George Soros. It’s nothing new for the publication to write about hedge fund managers, but the article’s usually in the business section. The current article about Mr. George Soros is about an avid philanthropist who’s donated $18 billion to Open Society Foundations over the last several years.

The article only came out a short while ago because Soros’s donations were kept from the public. Still, it’s easy to tell that Open Society Foundations received a lot of money over the years. It’s now the second-largest philanthropic foundation in the country.

Soros founded Open Society over 30 years. It was his way of dipping his toes into human rights and political activism. Now, his organization operates in more than 120 countries. His international influence is only matched by his financial success. Based in the United States, the U.S. gets a lot of attention from Open Society.

Historically, Open Society didn’t pay that much attention to America. America was on a path to enlightenment and self-betterment. In recent years, the number of hate crimes and hate organization’s grown exponentially. Now, it’s more important than ever that organizations like Open Society exist to fight against hatred.

Hatred isn’t the only thing that Open Society fights. Over the years, it’s become more about helping anyone in need. It’s helped health organizations and foundations set up treatment centers. It’s protected people and their cultures all over the world. It’s even begun fighting against the rampant American-hatred movement on a political level.

George Soros’s always been into politics. It’s the way he sees the world becoming a better place. Most importantly, he’s not shy about his political affiliations. It’s something that many people acknowledge as one of his greatest features. Of course, his open political stance attracts some mean people.

According to other sites’ articles, George Soros is one of the most hated people in the world. Those sites all belong to right-wing lunatics, so they can’t really be trusted that much. JPost even wrote an article about the horrible things conservatives claim Soros is responsible for causing. Up first, conservatives believe in maintaining the white dominance that “build America”. So, Soros’s support of movements like Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and the Women’s March pissed off a lot of right-wing conspiracy theorists.

Efforts of creating a better Society-George Soros and the Soros Foundation

You know that something is seriously wrong with a society when a mentally ill man can walk into a firearms seller, buy machine guns, walk into a hotel, set up a sniper station, and kill more than 60 people in one night. What is even more sickening is the assertion that arming people would prevent such massacres from taking place in the future. When George Soros escaped the Holocaust in the early 40’s and landed in the UK as an asylum seeker, he came face to face with the reality of what people who are segregated because of their ethnicity face every single day. He had to work as a porter and a busboy, and when he finally graduated from the London School of Economics, he has a dream of a future he would advocate for the rights of those that were less fortunate in the society.

Soros managed to create a business empire which is currently worth billions of dollars. His current net worth is $25 billion and is still growing. When he moved to New York from London, he started getting involved in open society foundations. His goal was to make sure that no one would have to suffer the life that he went through if there was anything that he could do to stop it from happening. He has been working with these foundations for the past three decades, and during this time, he has managed to accomplish a lot.

There was a time when it was rumored that he was involved in the Charlottesville protests. However, the news was poorly crafted and with the aim of painting Soros in a negative light. The assertion that he could mastermind someone to run over protestors was in poor taste and against everything that Soros has always believed in and advocated. Note that Soros is the man who was so appalled by the humanitarian crisis that Bush created in Afghanistan after invading the country that he decided to support John Kerry in his bid to get Bush out. While his efforts may have failed at the time, it is easy to see that human suffering profoundly hurts Soros and that he does not advocate for it in any way.

Soros has always supported the Democrats and their governance. He has been a strong supporter of the politics played by Hillary for a couple of decades now. Soros believes that the man occupying the White House is one of the saddest mistakes in the history of the nation. He believes that it is time for all groups that support human rights to rise and make sure they keep checks and balances on the government of the day. Soros is an inspiration to many people here and beyond.
