George Soros, through experience, education, conviction, and persuasion, has always been an ardent student of popular philosopher Karl Popper. Karl Popper was an Australian who believed that the ultimate truth was and will always be truly out of reach of any human society. As such, he believed that there was absolutely no way that any society, group, or individual would ever be accurate enough in their description of religion, morality and society. The liberal school of thought was actually initially fostered and proposed by Henri Bergson, who described it in his academic publication, the (1932). Karl Popper only polished it up and refined it in his book, The Open Society and Its Enemies (1945). In the book, the Australian explained that the common era in all totalitarian philosophies was that they wrongfully presumed to be wholesomely correct and complete. The folly of the assumption manifested in intolerance where the regimes that supported or subscribed to such totalitarian ideologies like Communism and Nazism imposed those particular ideologies on neighboring societies economically or through violent means.
George Soros has always, in poverty and in wealth, sort justice for the meek and the oppressed. He is arguably one of the most generous men in history as he has, over his lifetime, given out over 12 billion dollars of noble causes and legitimate philanthropic causes. Most of his donations and charitable givings have always gone to liberal causes involving giving financial, moral and legal support to individuals, groups, and entities seeking to protect their freedom of expression, transparency, and accountable government. More than anything else, the philanthropic billionaire has always dispensed his rightfully earned riches to aid those who seek justice for discrimination against their natural identity. George Soros himself was persecuted once for being Jewish. He was born in Budapest, Hungary at the time when the Nazi Regime has accented into power and had encroached on the Hungarian territory to cleanse the Jewish Race. The regime managed to kill over 500,000 Hungarian Jews and would have killed even more had it not been for the Soros Family.
The Soros family had survived by forging identity documents for themselves and others to help hide their Jewish identities to stay alive. He later fled Budapest to London. In London, Soros got to learn the value of hard work by working double shifts to raise tuition fees at the London School of Economics. He worked both as a railway manual laborer and a night club host. His time at the London School of Economics was well spent. It was while he was there that he acquired his impeccable financial and economic skill. The time he spent at the London School of Economics also exposed him to the publications of Karl Popper. Karl Popper’s views embedded in the Open Society and Its Enemies made such a big impact on George Soros that he later on, as a billionaire, created the Open Society Foundations to support liberal causes across the globe.
