The world has changed drastically in the past several decades politically as well as socially. And, while there has been massive progress in the field of economics, technology, and human development, the world has witnessed some significant drawbacks politically as well as socially. The governments of many countries, it seems, has been taking a capitalist approach to their governance that has been bothering many political analysts and contributors, including the legendary political contributor and lobbyist, George Soros. He is a man with a vision when it comes to politics, and it is his vision that he has been funding to ensure it is realized, sooner than later.
George Soros has a powerful influence in the United States politics and has helped in the rise and downfall of many leading politicians in the country. In the 2016 Presidential Election, George Soros was very vocal in his support for Hillary Clinton and financed her election with over 30 million dollars and also helped her gain many mega-donors. George Soros was against the candidacy of Donald Trump from the very beginning and didn’t want Trump’s administration at the helm.
However, even though Hillary Clinton couldn’t win the election, George Soros wasn’t discouraged and continued with his efforts to back the political candidates and senators who wanted reforms that he believed in, including education reforms, immigrant reforms, justice reforms, and more. George Soros says that the country has become a boiling pot under the Trump’s administration. Many issues need to be addressed, which are continuing to get aggravated due to the negligence of the government, including the way the minorities are being treated, how the elections are funded, racial disparity, injustice towards immigrants, and more.
George Soros is the man who supported Black Lives Matter and the Antifa movement even when he was highly criticized by many in the political circle. George Soros says that his financial position and political influence puts him in place to be independent in his approach and be less worried about what others think of him. It is why he has been able to follow his ideology without any hesitance. George Soros once read the book by Karl Popper named Open Society and its Enemies, which profoundly influenced him. He believes that the world should come united and work as one unit to ensure a better future for the next generation. George Soros has been known worldwide not for his political influence in the United States and other countries, but also for his extensive philanthropic efforts.
Recently, George Soros wired $18 billion to Open Society Foundation, an organization he started to help support various initiatives and charities world over to promote his philanthropic efforts and political ideology. George Soros says that if people who have wealth do not use it wisely for the betterment of the society and does not think a step ahead of standard population, what is their worth and value to the society that has given them so much. In total, George Soros has given away over $32 billion in charity in his life.
