George Soros’ upbringing in Hungary failed, and his family had to send him to New York to grow up. It was not their fault he had to leave as a political refugee. The Nazi Regime had literally made it illegal to be Jewish, and his father had been imprisoned for that unavoidable crime. His experience in Hungary, however, deeply entrenched a value and moral in the economic phenom, liberalism. George Soros is exactly what so many honest and phony politicians, all alike, like to brand themselves, a liberal mind. He is a liberal in conviction and persuasion. He has stronger political persuasions than most Democrats and Republicans holding political offices in Washington. However, George Soros has never pursued any political ambitions. His lack of interest in power accentuates his influence as the people appreciate him for having their interests truly at heart.
George Soros is globally famous for his deep pockets and wide business networks. He has an undisputed talent in wealth and opportunity creation. He also enjoys uttermost good faith from most of his business prospects who love him for the honest revenue he generates and his philanthropic spirit. He seems to have a deep understanding of the value of human dignity and is hence a very charitable gentleman. His compassion for the oppressed and the persecuted manifests in his liaison with lobby groups, charitable organizations, nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations, and international bodies to counter vices that demean human freedom or infringe on fundamental rights of humans. He seeks to emancipate the weak and the vulnerable through systematic funding of the right groups of people to concert efforts of remedy.
As a currency trader, George Soros has accumulated so many riches that he could never lack money for his philanthropic persuasions. Over the last thirty years, as Politico reports, the economist has committed and yielded over 13 billion dollars to political and social causes. Such generosity is unparalleled by anyone in his career. The good thing, he can afford it. A brilliant mind that was keen enough to observe the social and economic trends of Europeans from America back in 1992 is incapable of running into tough financial times. According to the Washington Times, George Soros speculated a rise in the value of dollars and predicted the Black Wednesday of the United Kingdom. In one day, he moved to sell ten billion dollars and made a one billion dollar profit. Since then, the man has always been referred to as the man who broke the bank of the United Kingdom.

Some of the lobby groups that Soros sponsors have been at the forefront of unseating dictators. He has funded the Independent Diplomat personally. The Independent Diplomat is largely responsible for the liberalization of Kosovo. He has also been an official sponsor for the Hillary Clinton presidential candidacy. Previously, he had dedicated more than the ten million dollars he spent on Clinton’s campaign to oppose George Bush’s bid for the presidency. He has been at the forefront of financing the Black Lives Matter Campaign and the Ferguson protests that were opposing police brutality and racial profiling. The protests had been a violent reaction to the extrajudicial killing of an 18-year-old unarmed black boy. George Soros turned the unlawful lawless, violent reactions to a powerful and organized response to the plight of the Black Community caused by reckless and unlawful policing. Read more on NYTimes.com
