Forbes.com listed George Soros as the twenty second richest man in the world, with a net worth of $25.2 billion. In an age where everyone screams the 1% do not deserve to be there, George Soros is a shining example that anyone can make it to the top.eorge Soros was born in the country of Hungary. However, he did not stay there. After leaving the country, he went to live in London, England. There he attended the London School of Economics. How did he afford it you ask? He worked as a bottom railroad porter and waited on tables. It was the funds he used from those jobs which he used to pay for his education.After receiving his education, Soros opened up his own hedge fund, now known as Quantum Funds, with $12 million dollars. Since then, he has achieved his fortune and has begun sprinkling that money all around the world to make Earth a wonderful place.
Soros is a liberal and deeply believes in that cause. Being a hostile critic of Donald Trump, Soros has did everything he could to stop Trump’s rise to the presidency.According to Politico.com, after a small absence in campaign finance, Soros returned with a vengeance. He could not let a man like Donald Trump become president. Because of that belief, he donated over $25 million to Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Unfortunately, even though she had the money, Clinton was unable to defect Trump in the elections.Now that Trump is president Soros has had to turn his eye to other liberal causes. Again, according to Politco.com, Soros has been a huge donor to liberal non-profits such as, Black Lives Matter, MoveOn.org, and Color of Change. The intent of his donating money is to bring hostility to the Republican Party and cause confusion, fear, disarray, and trouble within the conservative party’s ranks.
George Soros’ ideal world is a world where all have the right to vote in democratic elections and where none needs be hungry. To that end, he has donated, through Open Society Foundations, over $13 billion dollars over the last thirty years. Through his foundation Soros hopes to influence the democracy in Europe. He does not believe all Europeans enjoy their right to make their voices heard. Some European politicians criticize Soros for his passion in putting power into the hands of the people, but many see him as a shining light.Many people blame the 1% for the ills in this world and believe they are actively suppressing the 99%. One only needs to look at Soros work to know that all are not like that; in fact, Soros is doing everything he can to change that.
