There has been a lot of information being passed around about George Soros. Most of the information given is biased, and a good amount of it just downright wrong and misleading. Recently there were articles claiming that Soros had a connection with the Charlottesville accident where a man in a vehicle rammed into protestors. It is clear that the motive of the article was to tarnish George’s name and create an impression that he can use underhand tactics to oppose what he thinks is wrong. However, anyone who understands the legacy that has been created by Soros knows that this is the farthest thing from the truth.
While it is true that a lot is going wrong with the American dream right now, a philanthropist like Soros would never use war, intimidation or violence of any kind to try and make an opinion acceptable. George has always advocated for peaceful ways of resolving conflict education as a way of letting people know why it is wrong to discriminate people basing on their color, sexual orientation and other superficial factors. Soros has been in the country for the past three decades and the causes that he has created and championed are enough evidence of how he feels about discrimination.
The most memorable cause that he has been part of in the past was the Ferguson Missouri protests. This was after an African American was shot by a white cop. What was infuriating about the case was that the white officer claimed he acted in self-defense, yet the boy was not armed. People started a Black Lives Matter Hashtag and pretty soon, the protests had been taken to the streets of Ferguson. George’s role was to offer assistance in the hiring of the buses which ferried protestors to the City.
This is the type of leadership that George has advocated for. When something is wrong with the society peaceful protests can be done. He does not believe in violence because he is a survivor of the holocaust. As a young man, George had to flee from his home country, Hungary because of the Nazi occupation.
Another method that Soros uses in trying to make his point heard is education. There is a University that bears his name in Hungary. This center has been equipped with teachers learning materials that promote a liberal society, as opposed to the communist ideas that are prevalent in the region. He has actually managed to free most of the states in the region from the communistic regime.
George Soros has donated more than $6 billion to these causes which are aimed at making the society a better place. The latest from the foundation indicates that he has given another $18 billion of his $25 billion empire to the Soros foundation. This is a man who has spent his life working for the success of a democratic and free society. He is now working towards living a legacy in the same. Soros is a leader with a difference. and Follow him Twitter.com
