In a recent article appearing on The Atlantic website, George Soros waked about how the demonization of philanthropy has become a key tactic in the extremist toolkit of those who oppose open and fair government, and the control of society by the people. He would know what this tactic looks like better than anyone as he has been the target of these types of attacks repeatedly. If you listen to the conspiracy theorist online, especially the ones who love to use Twitter as their primary pulpit, taking advantage of its anonymity, rapid expansion reach, and the ability to create multiple accounts in a short period of time, he has been responsible for everything from the establishment of the Black Lives Matter movement, to the tragedies and controversies that have occurred in Charlottesville, Memphis, and Boston. He has been credited with the funding of Antifa, he has been associated with a wide range of controversies surrounding the Clinton Foundation and the Hillary Clinton campaign, and has even been attached laughably to the death of Seth Rich. All of this comes from the fact that he has decided that he would give a massive chunk of his personal fortune, more than 85% of it in fact to the tune of more than $18B US, to his non-profit organization the Open Societies Foundations.
The simple fact is that none of the claims made about him are true, other than the fact that he has been very openly in support of BLM, that he is a friend of the Clintons and as such supported Hillary in her run in 2016, and that he believes that the purpose of mankind and of human life is to create things that are bigger than we are and that will endure after we are gone. To make a legacy that is not for our own benefit, but rather for the benefit of all of humanity. From supporting school children in impoverished countries, to helping to find a way to stop the spread of HIV in African nations, to helping to reshape the political landscape for the better in the US, George Soros has a passion for philanthropic causes.
George has been passionate about making life better for others since he was a young boy. He found himself being a Jew in Nazi-occupied Budapest. He saw the worst that man can do to its fellow man and he vowed that he would work diligently to make sure that he did whatever it took to help humanity if he was ever given the chance. He got that chance when he moved to the UK after the war and started his education and later his career in finance. After coming to the United States, he began to take action that would help to make the world a better place, getting involved in progressive politics and social causes that helped to fight oppression in all of its forms.
Today he is recognized by the majority of the world as one of humanities most impassioned philanthropists. Those who oppose the betterment of mankind will no doubt still find ways to question the altruism of his work, but George isn’t concerned about that one bit, he isn’t in it for his own benefit, he does it for his love of his fellow man, and that is what makes it all worthwhile.
