It’s not often that you hear someone, especially someone involved in politics, being compared to a super hero. That’s because you don’t often encounter people like George Soros. Born in Hungary, this self-made billionaire is quickly becoming a one man army in the fight for social justice, using his money and influence to help people like a true super hero. He began gaining renown in the political sphere when he donated 27 million dollars in an attempt to defeat George W. Bush in 2004. Know more on cnbc.com about George Soros.
Since then he has become a progressively bigger player in American politics, most famously for when his grant-making company, the Open Society Foundations (or Open Society Institute at its founding)donated 33 million dollars to grass-roots civil action groups which participated in the protests which came about in Ferguson, Missouri in 2015. This move on the part of Soros was as surprising as it was controversial, earning his praise in scorn in equal measure. For it’s part, however, the praise was the only response well-grounded in reality, Soros’ detractors taking his generosity as a sign he was an active member of the Illuminati or any other equally ill-defined, fictional organization. Those of us living in the real world, however, saw Soros’ actions for what they were: unbridled and unapologetic heroism. As a common person with a passion for social justice, it is always invigorating to see those in positions of financial power using their influence for the improvement of everyday people.
