George Soros Sees Important Role For Philanthropy

Soros has made headlines for his recent decision to donate $18 billion to the Open Society Foundation. He believes this is going to be needed given the direction politics is going in the west. Open societies are an important foundation for the rise of any country because they allow people the opportunities needed to change their lives into what they want. This is why there is a strong need for people like Soros, but unfortunately his philanthropy has come under attack by those who would rather not see it. The right wing media is accusing him of a global conspiracy, but the truth couldn’t be further away.

Soros is certainly one of the most talked about figures in our modern society. His wealth was obtained through the finance industry, but unlike many others in the industry he chooses to use his wealth to improve the lives of others. That unusual move has made him the target of harsh criticisms from those on the right who seem to not be too fond of open societies. Their attacks are rarely overt attacks on his Jewish ethnicity, but these attacks clearly attempt to paint him as some sort of vampire trying to drain our society. The accusation that Soros is trying to destroy the west through globalization is an old but common attack against prominent Jewish individuals. Globalization has taken off in recent years and it’s left a number of people particular unhappy about it. Antisemites seek to use that to advance their causes.

George Soros couldn’t be further from the villain he is made out to be by those on the right. The man has spent much of his life trying to help those in poverty build themselves up and create better economies for the developing world. His work seems to have paid off in the form of better wages and more success overall for those around the world. The poor now have access to jobs that can help them move into the middle class and the wealthy have access to new markets. This is something that would normally be celebrated by the right. but in their new reality it seems to be an offensive thing. Apparently, we shouldn’t want our world to be filled with successful individuals and countries. A prominent opponent of communism is now the villain in the bizarre reality the right wing media has managed to create.

George Soros is not an unprecedented figure. Throughout history there have been examples of men of his nature trying to do everything they can to make the world around them a better place. Carnegie and Rockefeller are some of the most famous examples of this in action. Their actions gave the world much of what we appreciate today such as public libraries and railroads. If it wasn’t for their efforts to build up the world around us, we may not have seen America become what it is today. George Soros is simply the next person in line trying to build us up.
