George Soros is a billionaire. Today he is an American citizen. But he was born in Hungary when it was under Nazi rule. He was born to Jewish parents. His father spent a lot of effort and money in getting forged papers claiming that he is a Christian. This way he was able to get his son, George Soros out of the country.
It was in 1947 that his family moved from Hungary to England. Here he attended the London School of Economics. George Soros was highly influenced by the philosopher Karl Popper while he was here. He did not study directly under Popper but was deeply affected by his book about an Open Society. This changed the mindset of George Soros permanently and deeply impacted his thoughts and deeds later in life.
After graduating from the London School of Economics, George Soros joined a brokerage firm in London on Investopedia. He became an expert in buying securities in one country and selling them in another. After four years he moved on to Wall Street in New York and became a stock trader.
At this time George Soros was doing well for himself. He soon became an American citizen too. But he did not adhere to the views expressed by the Declaration according to discoverthenetworks.org. Also, he did not agree with the commercialized nature of America.
George Soros continued to believe in social justice for all. This is why he has always been at crossroads with the political power in America.
It was in 1979 that George Soros set out on the path of philanthropy. He started by opening the first Open Society Foundation in Hungary. He believed that there must be democratic governments around the world that must be tolerant. They must also be accountable to their citizens.
By the year 1987, George Soros started disseminating large amounts of money to various organizations and foundations all around the world. He also realized that his immense wealth created a lot of interest about him in the political circles. He decided to use that interest in order to influence the political powers in various countries, which he did. Today his Open Society Foundations are present in 70 countries all around the world.
He appointed Neier as the President of the Open Society Foundation as well as Soros Foundation Network. Neier is responsible for defining the agenda for these organizations. This agenda on nytimes.com categorically states that America is responsible for oppressing people in America as well as around the world. It also states that the basis of “America’s War Against Terror” is faulty as America is itself responsible for the birth of terrorism as it does not support fundamental rights of people across the world. These foundations openly support immigrants and refugees both at home and abroad.
