George Soros is a man who has spent a large amount of his life in pursuit of democracy and justice for all, which he has found in many nations through the work of his own Open Society Foundations, according to Discover the Networks. The philanthropic work of George Soros has often been completed in unfashionable areas of the world and in ways that do not bring fame or personal glory to the Holocaust survivor who has now made it his personal mission to protect the basic human rights of people from all corners of the planet; much of the early work of Soros and his Open Society Foundations was completed from the 1970s onward when the Soviet Union kept large swathes of Eastern Europe under Communist rule.
A basic understanding of the problems facing people in Eastern Europe living in closed societies was gained by George Soros through his own life as a young person when his family were forced to hide their Jewish heritage after Nazi forces occupied his home nation of Hungary; George Soros escaped the Holocaust through the ingenuity of his father, but later found himself living under the totalitarian rule of Joseph Stalin’s U.S.S.R. in the years following World War II. In the 21st century the cause of refugees and the issue of individuals living in closed societies has become the cause Soros has become best known for. Across the world, George Soros has provided financial backing for the majority of Causes that have eventually led to popular uprisings across a large part of Eastern Europe and the Middle East.

The initial backing of resistance groups in Eastern Europe began with George Soros providing his financial support to purchase copying equipment that allowed the initial stages of support to be created through banned materials being distributed among individuals behind the borders of closed societies. Tyrants have been the target of George Soros throughout his time as the leader of the Open Society Foundations, a group he had stepped away from in the early 2000’s to allow a team of influential philanthropic leaders to take control of as Soros also made the choice to step away from the U.S. political scene until 2016.
Politico reports the engagement of Soros in the 21st century was reborn in 2015 when he was allowed an open door to the office of former First Lady Hillary Clinton in the early days of her Presidential campaign. George Soros may believe the U.S. Constitution needs to be fought for on a regular basis, but he also believes the plight of refugees across the planet is more important than ever and even missed the nomination of Clinton and the Democratic National Convention in a bid to remain engaged with the growing refugee crisis facing the European Union in 2016.
