George Soros is Back and More Energetic Than Ever to Make a Difference

George Soros was once known as the kingpin of democratic funding. The man who during 2004 spent more than $27M on various activities in an effort to defeat then President George W. Bush during his reelection campaign, slipped quietly into the shadows following the defeat of John Kerry and the democrats. Now, however, he is back and he is more committed than ever to advancing the progressive platform and ideals through a comprehensive package of funding for a wide range of candidates and causes all over the country.

According to the Federal Election Commission, Soros has spent more than $25M over the past two years in efforts to support the campaign of Hillary Clinton and other Democrats who participated in races to upset the conservative hold on power that has been in place for more than seven years. The primary goal was to keep a democrat in the white house, of course, but other key races ranging from mayors and alderman, through governors and state legislators, and all the way up to senators and congressman were carefully chosen to help offset the extremism that Soros and others feel is starting to be prevalent in the conservative agenda.

In a related note, Soros, 85, was slated to attend his first ever Democratic National Convention in order to see his friend of more than 25 years, Hillary Clinton, receive the official nomination for president, a first ever for a woman in a major political party. He sadly was unable to attend due to the financial situation in Europe needing to be closely monitored. George Soros has been a consistent force in the Democratic Party and its movements for years. This is due to his belief that conservatives and the suppression of individual freedoms go hand in hand.

His political beliefs are formed in part from the experiences that he had as a young boy growing up as a Jew in Nazi occupied Budapest. For him in his formative years, every day was a battle for survival, and the oppression that he saw with his young eyes formed in him a sense of duty to protect social justice, and the inalienable rights of all men. With his financial backing, Soros has been able to help people all over the world, not just through the political realm, but by giving time and money to many various groups and organizations which provide for the needy, sick, and impoverished. While it may seem that George Soros hasn’t been around for a while, rest assured that he has stayed very active in trying to make a difference in the world, and with his resurgent interest in the political arena, he will without a doubt make even bigger impacts in the future.

The Open Society Still the Major Concern of George Soros

In his life George Soros has achieved more financial and business success than the majority of people in the world could even imagine, but throughout his career he has always remained loyal to an ideological principle he first came across as a student at the London School of Economics in 1947. By the time of his arrival as a refugee in London the Hungarian born Soros had already survived the Nazi Occupation of his native country of 1944 and 1945 before living under the Soviet system of Joseph Stalin following the end of World War II, The Open Society Foundations reports. After arriving at the London School of Economics and working his way through school as a waiter and porter, Soros began to explore the idea of the open society pushed forward by his teacher and mentor, Karl Popper; the open society theory includes the ideas that all people have the right to a democratically elected government and right to freedom of expression. Read his profile at Forbes.

The open society theory would eventually become the name of the charitable foundation created by George Soros in the 1980s to complete his philanthropic work. Soros himself has spent a large amount of the last three decades working to bring freedom and democracy to the people of the world through the work of a network of foundations and charitable groups he has created over the course of his philanthropic career, according to the Open Society Foundations. Taking a global approach to the problems of the world has seen Soros reach out to major groups, such as the United Nations in a bid to ensure issues like the effects of the war on illegal drugs are addressed at government levels; the illegal drug trade and the war on drugs have been a major issue for Soros as he feels many communities across the globe have been almost destroyed by the impact of choices made at government level to fight what Soros believes is an unwinnable war on the drug trade.

As a resident of New York in the 1960s and 70s George Soros was exposed to various different ideologies and ideas about how best to run the world in a political and philanthropic sense. In 2017, the political work of George Soros continues with the U.S. based Democratic party he feels has a requirement to fight the right wing policies and rhetoric of President Donald Trump, Forbes reports. Although now in his 80’s, George continues to travel and provide information to those who are interested in how he feels the changes he supports in public policy will have a positive effect on communities around the world if a more left wing approach were taken towards everyday life.
