George Soros is about Opening Societies and helping People to Thrive

Many right-wing followers might not believe this; but the major American liberal financier, George Soros, wants to make the world a better place for everyone. Soros is a firm believer in allowing people to immigrate into various countries to improve the quality of their life. The United States and the various countries of the European Union (EU) are two of Soros’s priorities for immigration.

Soros funds an organization called the Open Society Foundations and its main objective is to build tolerant societies whose governments are accountable and open to the participation of all people. This even means immigrants and other people who migrating from different parts of the world.

One of the reasons why Soros is such a big fan of U.S. immigration and of the migration of refugees from unstable regions into the EU; has to do with freedom and the right for people to be free from tyranny.

Soros wants people to live good and productive lives but he realizes that they need a stable environment to do so. If people are fleeing in droves from a particular nation; there is a reason why they are making an exodus out of that place.

Soros does not want the U.S. government or other EU nations to turn away immigrants or refugees. He wants them to be accepted in. Keep in mind that Soros is no fool. He does not want people just crossing over the border just to commit crime, live off of taxpayers and to destroy a stable way of life. Soros does not want that at all. He just wants people to live in a first-world environment and to experience the many blessings that this kind of environment has to offer.

This is one reason why George Soros funds many organizations through his Open Society Foundations network. Groups such as the Immigration Legal Resource Center, Humans Rights Watch, Amnesty International and the ACLU are all supported by Soros. They also work to help immigration to really be a workable solution to benefit everyone. Read more on Snopes about George Soros.

Soros really wants societies to be open because of the lessons he learned during World War II when he was just a young man. Soros grew up in Hungary under Hitler’s regime. His family were Jewish people. The only reason why they were not taken to the death camps was because of his father. Soros’s father got his family out of Hungary once he saw what was coming for Jewish people.

Soros never forget the lessons that he learned from this experience. It would motivate his reasons for being heavily involved into politics. By trade, Soros is a powerful businessman who has amassed an astronomical fortune. He has even used his funds to help establish programs for inner city children; he funded the arts and has even given assistance to various universities and colleges.


Soros’s Open Society Foundation is something that is important to Soros. It helps him to do his part with maintaining a balanced world where no one man or government can come to power and rule everyone. Soros realizes that everyone needs a chance in life to be successful. Sometimes, governments must allow people inside of their lands to make this happen.
