The world has always been filled with hate. Hate is something that’s just as abundant as love, only worse. It seems like hate is winning these days, which is why people like George Soros are so important. George Soros is billionaire Wall Street genius who’s dedicated his life to philanthropy.
Mr. Soros is up in Nazi-occupied Hungary. As a Jew, it’s understandable why he felt unwanted in his home country. Even after the Nazis left, Hungary was still a Communist nation. He decided to move to London to get away and ended up in the United States.
Once there, he joined the endless hedge fund managers of Wall Street. In 1992, he made one billion dollars by shorting the British pound. Since then, he’s been a huge success on Wall Street. About 30 years, he began giving to charities. It started with a few local organizations and evolved from there, and Twitter.com.
Eventually, he created his own organization, Open Society. It’s been that organization that’s received most of his generosity since. Several sources, including the NY Times, report that he’s donated over $18 billion to his foundation. According to Soros, he plans on donating another $2 billion in the next few years.
Open Society isn’t the largest philanthropic organization, but it has the most fans; the Bill and Melinda Gate Foundation is the largest. Despite that, Open Society is the most effective and impactful of any philanthropic organization. For the past 30 years, Open Society’s operated in more than 120 countries.
Recently, the foundation’s been acting in the United States. America is the world leader in a lot of things, but it’s been having a lot of issues with hate lately. Open Society is focused on preventing hate incidents from continuing to ravage the nation. Soros even gave $10 million just to stop the violence in Charlottesville, and what George Soros knows.
Part of trying to change the world is getting involved in politics. Naturally, Soros sides with Democrats, as Republicans rub him the wrong way. His public support of leaders like Hillary Clinton made him a target for right-wing conspiracy theorists.
Not only does his support Democratic politicians, he opposes Republicans. JPost recently talked how he once said he’d give up his fortune to prevent President George W. Bush from being reelected. Of course, that didn’t go over well with Republicans or their supporters, and https://www.opensocietyfoundations.org/people/george-soros.
