George Soros is an interesting man. He’s not the traditional elderly billionaire. Most billionaires become more generous as they get older, fearing the moral consequences of their younger selves. Mr. Soros became a philanthropist more than 30 years ago. His philanthropy comes from a place of genuine concern for humanity.
All those decades ago, Mr. Soros decided to create the Open Society Foundations. Open Society is Soros’s go-to organization. It’s his personal weapon against tyranny and hatred. Over the years, he’s donated much of his wealth to fund his organization. Recently, his donations were figured at $18 billion.
Even though he’s donated more money to a single organization than almost anyone on the planet, he plans on donating billions more before he leaves this earth. With his funding, Open Society’s become of the largest and most effective philanthropic organizations in the world.
Open Society is the love child of Soros’s kindness and passion. Its primary mission is to democracy and human rights wherever it can. To date, the foundation’s operated in over 120 countries. It assists like-minded organizations with a variety of issues, regardless of domestic tensions. For the past few months, Open Society’s been focused on the United States, and follow his Twitter.
After the 2016 election and Donald Trump became president, America was overwhelmed by hatred. Hatred and ignorance have always been a part of America, but Trump’s victory woke a sleeping monster. Now that it’s awake, it’s raining havoc and violence on any group not prepared to face that level of rage.
Open Society spends a lot of time in the United States helping programs designed to protect the LGBT community and reduce police brutality. Naturally, as hate crimes swept across the country, Soros donated more money to prevent these atrocious acts.
It also goes without saying that George Soros is a supporter of Democratic leadership. He’s supported Democrats his entire career. He gives to dozens of politicians, including Hillary Clinton. His political views made him the target of some much-unwanted hate. A lot of right-wing extremists began publishing horrible stories about him, in an effort to discredit and belittle his kindness, and https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/1997/02/the-capitalist-threat/376773/.
Of course, these stories are fake. Of the most shocking is an accusation made to Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, who alleged that Soros hired women to accuse him of sexual assault.
