The Liberal Billionaire, George Soros

The World War Two was a dark moment for the world, but it was darkest for the Jewish Community. The Nazi Regime under Hitler was bad enough for the world, but the Jewish people felt the blunt most. The Nazi yearned to spill Jewish blood, and they did. They even invaded the place the most generous man was born, just to kill him and his kind, all Hungarian Jews. They did manage to put 500,000 Jews to death, but they actions did not deny the world a liberal billionaire that has come out strongly to fight forces that seek to oppress and persecute others for their identity. They failed to kill George Soros, most members of his family and other Jews who had been lucky enough to be in association or mere contact with the Soros family. They managed to use their fortunes to make fake documents that sealed their Jewish identities thus saving their lives. Read more on nytimes.com

Today, George Soros is a billionaire and effectively, according to tax reports, one of America’s most generous men in all of history. Having donated over 12 billion dollars to noble causes, most of a Liberal agenda, it still seems incredible that this man has managed to remain an influential world business dealer, an opinion maker at the Democratic Party and an economic force that oppressive regimes have had to reckon with globally. George Soros has always remained a believer in peaceful assertion and has been reported to be strategic in his calculated political and business moves. Just less than two decades after his ascent into wealth, he earned himself a sensational and legendary title as the Man Who Broke the Bank of England. He did so by earning himself and his associates a profit of one billion dollars in just one day by buying and selling the British Pound.

Initially, George Soros’ Liberal agenda was hidden behind educational funding, but it later came to be more pronounced and assertive. He started by offering scholarships for South Africans who were essential for the fight against the Apartheid Regime. Then, he funded the introduction of the Critical Thinking to the Communist Eastern Block and the reprinting of texts which had been banned by the Soviet Regime for being too Liberal. He ended up being an outright human rights activist and an avid subscriber to the Democratic Party. Read his profile at Forbes.

The Ferguson Protests

An extra-judicial killing of an unarmed 18-year-old Black American boy sparked a violent reaction by members of the Black Community in Ferguson who were not very amused by the racial profiling to which they had been subjected. The narrative almost lost form and audience with the nasty way the protests had sparked out initially. However, George Soros quickly mobilized resources and people to sound the grievances and call the government to hold police officers responsible for their actions. He donated 33 million dollars that were instrumental in paying for national bus rides that ferried activists. The money also coordinated academic scripting to make cases against police brutality. Also, journalistic lobby groups were empowered to coordinate the massive national social media concerted into the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag.
