George Soros is a financial wizard, and has made his mark on the world. Soros has an interesting take on life, society, and history. Having escaped the cruelty of the Nazis in his lifetime gives him a unique perspective. He sees oppression springing from the need to push the philosophy of ultimate truth.
Since so-called ultimate truth is beyond mankind’s reach, societies can only push these ideologies by resorting to oppression. People have different views, and in an open society, it is the role of certain institutions to work to help people to live together in peace.
He also believes he has an answer to why no one has access to the ultimate truth. The reason being is that our own perceptions form our individual realities. They also affect the events that we all choose to participate in. Thus, no two people will come to terms with an absolute definition of truth. Their truth is always subject to change.

In an article by Politico in 2016, Politico describes the emergence of Soros as an advocate for Democratic Party principles. As a result, he has donated millions to nonprofits and organizations like the American Bridge 21st Century, and to a host of Democratic Party committees. He has also donated to a super PAC called Immigrant Voters, which hopes to increase voter turnout among Latinos.
Today, Soros believes that democracy is in a crisis. His belief is that the world’s greatest democracy, the United States, elected an administration that may affect the nation’s ability to positively influence democracy initiatives around the world. The weakening of the country will result from a philosophy that wants to make deals rather than defend principles.
