The Reasons for George Soros’ Liberal Causes being criticized

George Soros has a prominent place in the minds of liberal activists and people who are fighting for the disadvantaged communities. While he is a hero for many, especially people who are suppressed, he is an enemy to some, the oppressors. That is why most of the conservative groups do not agree with him or reject his ideologies and initiatives though there is no logic in their stance. Sadly, most ultra-right groups plot him as an enemy or conspirator behind all pro-liberal movements. This is what happened when people came out to the streets for protesting against the U.S. President Donald Trump after he was elected. People protested against him due to his conservative stands on women’s rights and other flawed policies.

Though a few of the Soros-funded liberal groups took part in the protests, people who know him well understand his respect to the verdict. But, the ultra-conservative groups want to plot him as the puppet master who controls both global politics and economy and working against them. The truth is completely different from their assumptions. Though he efficiently utilized financial opportunities of various currencies and the wrong policies followed by various countries, to intelligently invest and gain huge profits, he did not wield a greater power both in politics and economy. But, his conservative opponents are not ready to publically accept that though they are sure that George Soros is a man of integrity towards his business, politics, philanthropy, and more.

For the conservative critics, they just need a person whom they can pinpoint for all their flawed policies and their failures. When it comes to Soros, they can easily target him due to his stance supporting liberal causes and his status of hugely successful billionaire mostly from risky currency trading. He contributed large sums to defeat George W. Bush in the 2004 Presidential Election due to the Iraq War. It should be noted that Soros publically condemned the Iraq War as unnecessary. But, right groups started targeting him from then, and it got escalated in the recent years considering his campaign against Donald Trump in 2016 Election.

George Soros was born in Budapest in the early 1930s and earned his graduation from London School of Economics. After working in London for a brief period, Soros decided to move to the United States and started working as a share trader at the Wall Street. In 1970, he established Soros Fund Management, currently, a leading hedge fund management firm. From the early 80’s, he started founding Open Society Foundations to propagate his philosophies about open societies, to mobilize people for democratization across the world, and to support various philanthropic groups. It should be noted that he spent as many as $13 billion – more than 50% of his current wealth – to numerous philanthropic initiatives in the last three decades.

 

George Soros’s Contributions Grow as Civil Causes Benefit from Philanthropy Efforts

Many billionaires have contributed to philanthropy efforts; however, there are few who have done it as skillfully and humbly as George Soros. George is an investor, philanthropists, author and inventor, but most of all he is a civil servant to the world. The 86 year old, has contributed a great amount of his wealth to world causes and charities. George’s wealth has allowed the world to see his core beliefs that show humanity for all of society.

When the civil movement began in Ferguson, Missouri, George stepped up again and contributed to the cause in order to elevate the conversation and bring strength to the voices of the unheard. George provided $33 million in support of the grass-roots movement which allowed activists to elevate the awareness of their cause. Through his non-profit group, the Open Society Foundations, George has provided a combined total of $650 million towards social injustice causes, minority groups, LGBT awareness and activism, as well as religious groups.

The movement with Ferguson, Missouri created an occasion for George to support his core belief which is that all those who seek to bring growth and needed change are afforded the opportunity to do so. According to George, when there is an opportunity to reduce oppression in any society, those who can bring the progressive changes needed should be willing to be held accountable to those who cannot.

George was born during a time when injustices were rampant in society. In the 1940’s George observed a society that was pierced with stagnant citizens who desired change, and those who could have assisted were non-existent. For over three decades, his mission has been to seek out groups, organizations and causes which reflect the greatest need.

In 2017, George became the 19th richest man in the world with a net worth of $25 billion. Through the Open Society Foundations, George Soros has re-invested into the world by contributing more than $18 billion towards world causes in 100 countries. His support of democracy and basic human rights has been a platform which he’s been able to engage at levels that other billionaires are unable to reach. Through George’s international ideals and financial contributions; lives have been saved, communities have been enriched and societies have been reconstructed. George Soros established the Open Society Foundations.

During the last 2016 presidential election cycle, George proudly supported then candidate Hillary Rodham-Clinton with political contributions reaching $25 million. George has been a consistent democratic donor for decades and provided the potential candidate his unwavering support for the nomination.

Most people can make a real difference to those who need their support. However; George has raised that bar to a higher standard, not because of his wealth, but because of his decency for committing to the causes that make societies better. George has created a legacy which has set an example for the young business leaders who might hope to become billionaires. His legacy will prove that true compassion for those who create the societies all across the globe are formed by differences, but sustained by providing human rights to all.
