George Soros Championing for a Just and Equal Society

According to the world’s statistics, George Soros is the third largest philanthropist with his donations totaling to over $12 billion. Having experienced injustice firsthand, Mr. George has a passion for charity. The causes George Soros supports through his philanthropy are quite many, however, the common underlying factor with all of them helping people who are discriminated based on who they are. To understand George and his philanthropy works, it is important we go through his life. Here are some of the points worth noting.

George Soros was born in 1930 in Hungary. Having been brought up during the Holocaust of 1944-1945, George was able to have the firsthand account and witness the brutal murder of more than five hundred thousand Hungarian Jews by then government. Luckily, for the Soros’s family, they were able to escape by concealing their identities and also helping others they could. After the end of the revolution, George was able to migrate to London, UK in search of greener pastures. While in London, George enrolled for economics at the London school of Economics, financing his studies by working as a nightclub waiter and railway porter. In addition to studying economics, Mr. George also took an interest in Karl Popper’s book “The Open Society and Its Enemies.” Arguably it is with this background and the brutal experiences that Soros founded his philanthropy. George Soros established the Open Society Foundations.

After graduating from the London school of Economics in 1952, George Soros was involved in some financial investment before sailing to the US to work as a broker in one of the best Wall Street brokerage firm, F.M. Mayer. Soros worked for the company and a number of other enterprises, gaining experience. In 1973, Soros took a life-changing career risk and started his own hedge fund known as the Soros Fund Management with an initial investment of $12 million. Thanks to Soros expertise and industry’s experience the fund was able to able to gain much success in the American history.

George Soros Philanthropy

George Soros began to actively take part in philanthropic activities in 1979. Some of the activities George was involved in included offering scholarship to the apartheid black South Africans, nurturing critical thinking by creating Central European University, and funding cultural exchange program between the West and Europe to help his Soviet nation open up to the world.

1984 saw George Soros launch the Open Society Foundations. To date, George has been using this foundation to reach out to the oppressed and marginalized people in the society. With a network of over 100 countries, the Open Society Foundations has helped champion the freedom of expression, human rights, education, health, politics, and democratic governance among many other causes.

Fundamental Information About End Citizens United Team

Above mentioned is a committee launched on March 1, 2015. Their primary goal is to secure their campaign finance system from disastrous effects. I am delighted in finding the panel channeling their energy towards combating all acts of impudence by the affluent people who make attempts to buy elections. With such a committee, no doubt we will begin experiencing reformation as they compel the lawmakers to take action against such people. As goes their mission, they are set to rip to shreds the corrupt political system and re-elect reform-oriented champs.

 

Why the Enthusiastic Financial Reformists Need Support

 

We find them declaring that they support transparency and openness in public finances spending. They support Republicans who are committed to bringing significant reforms in their system and toppling Citizens United. Cartels engaging in dark money tend to attack real leaders, and this is a reason why Citizen United needs to end. I admire their zeal in fighting against such greedy personalities who are worth of billions. At the end of the day, the ordinary citizen needs someone to help them regain power.

 

Reason Why the Committee Teamed with Democrats in Their Fight Again Citizens United

 

Most Democrats have so much to offer in particular offices. Again, they are on the forefront of fighting against End Citizens United, and I realize that they are against uncontrolled spending. The decision made by the Supreme Court needs overturning as it is disastrous. The committee gets funded by grassroots activists who believe in their power to push for major reforms. Joining with Democrats was also a brilliant idea because most of them have robust platforms through which they get financial boosts.

 

End United Citizens PAC’s Impact in Pushing for Their Goals

 

The committee realizes that the Supreme Court’s decision made in 2010 unbridled a tidal surge of dark money into the political arena. The said committee believes in reprimanding such, and so far they have more than 325,000 people who have signed the End United Citizens United’s appeal. We find the group strategizing on how to set up an independent expenditure arm, and they have an assured support of liberals. As much as the task is daunting and pretty demanding, their effect in setting a high bar is undeniable.

 

Conclusion

 

As it is, there is so much need to return financial power to an ordinary American. With an able leadership of veterans with liberal minds, it shall come to pass. We can attest to the vitality of pushing for rationality in spending of political funds. Whether their petition gets granted or not, the committee remains to be very vital especially in watching the Supreme Court as well as the financial system. At least they will exert pressure and deny any room for making poor decisions.
