George Soros of Soros Fund Management is perhaps one of the most powerful men in politics today who does not have a seat in the Senate. This is due to his extreme wealth, which he uses to constantly push his liberal agenda. He does this that the left may win the moral argument here in the United States of America. He has been an open opponent of the Republican Party from his early childhood and continues to vehemently destroy them in every news broadcasting he is in. This anger and hostility toward the GOP have earned him the label “the bogeyman of the right.”
His anger can easily be understood of course when you look at his childhood. George Soros was a man who put himself through the London School of Economics during a time when England was controlled by the political right. He saw firsthand how hard it was to actually become somebody in this modern era while you are working low-wage jobs. He vowed that should he ever become wealthy that he would do what he could to help everybody succeed in life by using liberal policies.
George Soros would make good on his promise when he started his global nonprofit, which he calls the Open Society Foundations. The Open Society Foundations exists to promote liberal and leftist views throughout the various governments around the globe. This is done by training and educating current leaders in women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, and civil rights. It also accomplishes its mission by funding those who are running for office that are capable of affecting these changes. In fact, this can be seen right here in the United States of America.
George Soros has donated to several political campaigns in the last decade and a half through the Open Society Foundations. In fact, he has donated nearly $150 million to several Democratic causes, most of which have been presidential campaigns. The first time we saw George Soros begin to throw his weight around with his money was when he decided to back John Kerry in his 2004 presidential election against incumbent President George W. Bush. During this election season, George Soros would donate a $27 million fund to John Kerry so that he could change the minds of many purple states.
The second time we saw George Soros begin donating in the world of politics was in 2008 when he gave $15 million to Sen. Barack Obama’s that he could become the first African-American man in the White House.
The most recent time we saw George Soros donate in the world of politics was in 2016 when he backed his longtime friend, Hillary Clinton, to help her in her bid to gain the presidency. His giving stepped up exponentially when he realized that Donald Trump would be calm the Republican nominee for the presidency. While Hillary Clinton did not gain a presidency, George Soros continues to thwart Donald Trump through many super PACs meant to stop his bigoted policy changes.
George Soros, a Hungarian billionaire and philanthropist, apparently angered Russia with his books. In fact, he angered them so much that Russian authorities have seen fit to burning 53 books that have been linked to his charity. What makes these books a threat? To understand why Russia might see Soros as a threat, you first have to understand his history. In 1979, Soros took a stance in South Africa that had him giving out college scholarships to black Africans. Soros has also supported the dissidents of the Polish Solidarity movement.
Throughout his lifetime, he has been seen as a somewhat controversial figure because he takes a stance on things that others wouldn’t. He stands up for those who cannot fight for themselves, which has made him unpopular to countries like Russia. For example, one of the ideas behind his Renewal of Humanitarian Education program would be that it supports critical thinking and democracy.
In 2015, the Russian government hinted that it wanted to ban Open Society, which is George Soros’s charity. They justify it by saying that his ideologies pervert the perception of history. In addition, they have argued that it does not align with the Russian belief system. Along with the 53 books that have been burned, 427 other books had been seized to shred. Russian authorities found these books at the Vorkuta Mining and Economic College, and they quickly dispatched with them. Ultimate, the ideas in the books linked to Soros’s charity go against communism because the primary goal of the project would be to spread democracy on an international scale.
Open Society has projects that operate in over 100 countries, and he has stayed committed to the idea of having an open society. What are some of the ideas that you will find in his books? First, he believes that the rights of the people will be respected. Second, he wants the government to be held accountable for their actions, and he does not believe that anyone holds a monopoly on truth.
When the Berlin Wall fell, he created the Central European University that promotes critical thinking. After he did that, he expanded his foundations out to Asia, the United States and Africa. People who have been held unlawfully without legal representation have sometimes been given legal representation. The bottom line: Russia is burning the books of George Soros because he represents an ideology that goes against everything communism stands for.
Philanthropy involves not just giving to charity and similar activities, it also involves making actual efforts to improve the lives of others. Many of the best and most successful businesses have been started by philanthropists. The idea behind business involves what they could provide for people, sometimes even more than making money.
In some cases, philanthropy results in making donations to projects like The Kennedy Center. The Kennedy Center makes it so that many people have a chance in their lives that would otherwise have no chances. The initiative that started the fundraiser has resulted in millions of money that have brought it past its initial goals. This is thanks to the generosity of people like Dick DeVos.

DeVos himself has shown himself to be very passionate about life in general as he details in his bestselling book. His passion has led him to make special donations to many different charities. His donations are meant to improve the lives of others. He wants to improve the lives of individuals and he also wants to make sure that relationships between people are improved. Dick has a pure heart when it comes to his charitable activities. When DeVos gives, he does not give with the intention of getting something in return as he is very open about the wealth with which he and his family have been blessed. He gives from the kindness of his heart.
One of the goals that DeVos is striving for is community transformation. He is definitely interested in improving the health of the community so that they can better support one another. He is particularly passionate about education and founded an aviation acadamey that serves as a high school for the aeronautically inclined. In addition to interests in aviation, the DeVos family also takes a vested interest in sports and have owned the Orlando Magic in the past and most recently purchased the Chicago Cubs.
Dick is the first one to reach out to congratulate members of his community on their successes and uses his personal Twitter profile and Facebook page to champion local businesses and individuals in his hometown of Grand Rapids.
Exciting! The Gerald R. Ford International Airport begins construction that will improve our local airport and make flying to and from Grand Rapids an even better experience.

Philanthropy is very positive because it promotes doing for others. When people do for others, they in effect bring about positive change in that they will help people in many different ways. For one thing, they will provide for the needs of some people. They will also give others the inspiration to continue on the path that the other charitable person has walked on. They don’t have to be rich in order to perform acts of charity. Just one charitable act of philanthropy can change the world in many positive ways.
