The Freedom Of Open Societies
Open societies offer people a chance to define their own path in life free from any marks placed on them in birth. In most traditional societies your position in life is already planned for you by a strict hierarchy on Forbes. George Soros understands this better than anyone else and he wants to create a world where the majority of us are able to decide are position in life and where we want to go. This is why he uses his own fortune to support the Left and progressive causes.
How Soros Plans To Create Them
George Soros’ supports the creation of open societies by doing everything he can to help foster environments where they can thrive. For example, he was key in the peaceful transition of his native Hungary from a communist dictatorship into a free market democracy. Over the course of decades he did everything he could to bring democracy and free trade to Eastern Europe. Once he was able to succeed and bringing about the change he wanted to see George Soros focused on protecting and advancing progressive values in the United States and Europe. Although he has seen some successes he has also had some disappointments.
Recent Disappointments In Politics
2016 was a year filled with disappointments for George Soros. He saw the rise of Donald Trump and increased support for nativism in the West. George Soros is a strong supporter of immigration so both of these trends are a negative for him. He invested heavily in efforts to oppose Donald Trump and efforts to support migrants in Europe, but it appears as if both were in vain.
How He Plans To Fix Things
George Soros plans to help the Left recover from the recent damage it has suffered. He understands better than anyone how to promote progressive values and he refuses to back down. In order to help the Left recover Soros is working with top Democrats and with progressive donors to find out what they can do to help improve the outlook for the Left in the upcoming mid term elections on Investopedia. As of now he is focused on doing everything he can to stop Trump’s agenda for his first 100 days.
