The global political scenario hasn’t been more complicated than it is today in many decades, and while things look relatively calm and composed, one can also call it a lull before the storm. George Soros, one of the most influential businessman and political contributors based in the United States, wrote an article recently about how and why Capitalism is a threat that world must open their eyes to before it is too late. George Soros has witnessed communism and Nazism very carefully in his life and knows the extent of the threat it is and how disadvantageous it is to the society. In fact, he escaped death along with his family during the Hungarian Holocaust that resulted in the death of over 500,000 Jewish in Hungary. However, he and his family were lucky to survive due to the political patronage they enjoyed due to his father’s connections in the power corridors of Hungary.
George Soros has been able to use his abundant financial resources to propagate the political ideology he believes in. It is why he spent nearly $30 million in the Presidential Election of Hillary Clinton in 2016. George Soros also runs a charitable organization by the name of Open Society Foundation that is connected to many different local, regional, and international charities and works toward the causes that George Soros feels for. George Soros recently announced that he would be giving away $18 billion from his wealth to Open Society Foundation, which makes him one of the most prominent philanthropists in the world and his foundation, one of the wealthiest. George Soros believes that it is necessary for the people blessed with financial resources and influence in the political circle to contribute to the society and give back to build a world that is safe, progressive, and united.
George Soros once read the book by Karl Popper named Open Society and its Enemies, which profoundly influenced him. The name of his foundation, Open Society Foundation, is inspired by the book and its ideology as well. It is for this reason he believes that the capitalism is a threat that the world population and progressive leaders must address and help in the building of an open society that is governed by the principles of democracy, where people’s voice is heard, and government functions in absolute transparency. George Soros is known for helping movements like Antifa movement and Black Lives Matter, and he has been very open about it as well.
George Soros says that minorities and marginalized section of the people are the citizens of the country as well and their rights need to be protected and not violated, which is the case these days. In many circumstances, it has been seen that the rights of marginalized people such as refugees, immigrants, minorities, black people, have been violated by the government authorities, and injustice has been done. George Soros says that the government has to be more fair and transparent in their operations if it needs to win the trust of the people and it is the leader of the government to implement reform measures that ensure that the rights of the people are not tampered with in any way.
