You’ve probably heard the name George Soros before. But who is he? And why is he so dangerous to democracies, particularly America? Soros is a billionaire investor, philanthropist, and political activist who has been convicted of breaking laws in multiple countries. He’s also the man behind the curtain of many leftist causes in America, such as Antifa. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at who George Soros is and why he’s so dangerous to democracies. We’ll also overview the Open Society Foundation (OSF), which is one of his main instruments of destruction.
Who Is George Soros?
George Soros was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1930. During World War II, he posed as a Christian to escape the Nazi occupation. After the war ended, he moved to England where he studied at the London School of Economics. He then began his professional career as a banker in New York City.
It’s important to note that Soros’ formative years were spent during World War II and its aftermath. These years shaped his views on society, particularly his belief that national borders are obstacles to be overcome and that there should be open societies without them. This amorality planted during the Nazi occupation would later bloom into two major ideas that would drive Soros: relativism and utilitarianism.
Relativism is the belief that there are no absolutes—that what is true for you may not be true for me and vice versa. This is a destructive idea because it destroys objective truth. If there is no objective truth, then everything becomes subjective—including morality. And if morality is subjective, then anything goes. This leads us to utilitarianism, which is the belief that the morally correct thing to do is whatever maximizes pleasure or happiness and minimizes pain or unhappiness for the greatest number of people concerned.
These two ideas—relativism and utilitarianism—are what guide Soros in his actions today. And they help explain why he’s so dangerous to democracies.
The Open Society Foundations (OSF)
The Open Society Foundations (OSF) is a private organization founded by George Soros in 1979. The OSF funds many initiatives aimed at promoting democracy around the world, including education, media, public health, and civil society development programs. However, despite its stated goals, many of these programs have been accused of having a hidden agenda to promote leftism and undermine democracy—particularly in America. For example, OSF has given millions of dollars in funding to groups such as Antifa—a violent far-left extremist group that has been involved in numerous riots and assaults nationwide.
In short, while pretending to support democracy, George Soros and his OSF are actually working to destroy it from within by funding groups that undermine democracy and promote leftism—all while hiding behind a veneer of legitimacy.
Implications for Society Moving Forward
George Soros is a well-connected philanthropist with a long history of breaking laws and subverting democracies—particularly America’s democracy. His network of foundations and organizations are working diligently to promote leftism while undermining democracy from within—and they’re doing it with billions of dollars at their disposal. So what does this mean for society moving forward? It means we need to be aware of George Soros and his network of organizations so that we can expose them for what they are: a threat to democracy itself.
