Demystifying George Soros

George Soros is a business magnate and a very liberal man. He has got it all. Anyone in his position would be enjoying his sunset years sailing around the world in a luxury yacht. But not Mr Soros, he is always involved in any course that would improve human existence regardless of race and gender.

Through his open society foundations, Soros aims at promoting human rights and democracy. Through this foundation, he has funded worth courses like independent journalism, early childhood education and government spending.

In the past decade, Soros has donated billions of dollars. His foundations have dwarfed his contribution despite their humongous size. Soros is a staunch believer in democracy. His liberal thoughts and philosophy have no geographical boundaries. He has funded former Soviet bloc countries to help transform themselves into modern democracies.

Mr George Soros believe in human rights, is worth emulating. Political situations in many states have caused divisions among Americans. If the administrating government is not careful in addressing the sensitive issues like racism, gay rights, and abortion, public unrest and protests can result in race wars as it happened in the United Kingdom and Ferguson.

Soros has been in the forefront supporting the established groups financially. Like the case in Ferguson. According to financial reports reviewed by Washington times, Soros has been mobilizing and funding groups across the US with a worth course, like Black Lives Matter movement.

Any country purporting to be democratic, should embrace inclusivity, and be just in service dispensation. The open society foundations by Soros gives monetary support to groups to enable them combine data collection, policy, research and community organizing for a more responsible community and government.

A lot of bad things happen during any public protest. I agree according to Mr. Soros foundation that, they have no power over what people say or do during the protest. Regardless of the aftermath consequences of the protests, like the case in Ferguson, they unearthed a situation of unaccountability and lack of democratic participation. That was a positive outcome!

The recent people’s climate march funded by George Soros was seen as a disguise in attacking President’s Trump administration on issues like immigrant attacks, and his other agendas which seemed to ruffle many feathers. However, Soros advocacy towards personal sovereignty, democracy, is the cornerstone of any modern society and these values should be kept in check always.

Dick And Betsy DeVos’s Charity Amounts Revealed In Past Year

Dick DeVos and his wife Betsy have been highly involved in politics and activism over their careers and thanks to their outstanding track record in education reform, Betsy DeVos was chosen to be the 11th US Secretary of Education. Dick DeVos and his wife have certainly been compensated well in business both while Dick was CEO of Amway Corporation, and after he retired to become a private investor through The Windquest Group. Betsy was the Michigan Republican Party chairperson both in 1996-2000, and then again in 2004. Dick ran for governor in the 2006 race which he lost to Jennifer Granholm. The DeVos’s have influenced Grand Rapids through their charity work which at the confirmation hearings was revealed to be $139 million in total lifetime giving, though even that number did not include some unaccounted for funds.

 

While their giving did not start with the Dick & Betsy DeVos Family Foundation which was started in 1992, the foundation did become a cornerstone for many other non-profits they helped establish. Education became their first goal because Dick DeVos saw how important quality education was for young people, and he and Betsy wanted to give low income families a chance to have the same opportunities their own children had. Their first education philanthropy came through scholarship programs at Education Freedom Fund and Children First America which partnered with the Children’s Scholarship to make the endeavor happen. In 2003 they established a charter school support group known as the Great Lakes Education Projects, and in 2010 they began the West Michigan Aviation Academy to provide an advanced curriculum for students.

 

Dick DeVos also has funded civic organizations in Grand Rapids including Grand Action, originally known as Grand Vision. This organization works with city leaders to bring in new entertainment, arts, libraries, museums and commercial developments to downtown Grand Rapids. His art funding also includes ArtPrize, a competition that encourages young people to create painted, sculpted and other ingenious works of art. He’s also given to children’s hospitals and health facilities and was given the Spectrum Health Foundation’s Art of Giving award.

 

Dick DeVos is Richard DeVos Sr.’s son and the brother of Daniel, Douglas and Cheri DeVos. The DeVos family is very close to former President Gerald Ford’s family and currently owns most of the shares of the NBA’s Orlando Magic. Richard DeVos Sr. cofounded Amway Corporation in 1957, and Dick learned from him a lot of ethics and guidelines in managing a business. Dick graduated from Northwood University and began working in his family’s company in 1974 at age 19. At age 29 he was promoted to Vice President of Sales and Marketing. He left the company at age 34 and started The Windquest Group along with his wife Betsy during this time. He returned to the company in 1993 and became CEO, expanding Amway into 50 new countries and generating sales of over $4 billion in his last year alone. He retired in 2002 and focused on The Windquest Group’s investments and his non-profit work.
