"It is a sort of a disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything," confessed George Soros to a British newspaper, "but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out." Recalling youthful fantasies of omnipotence in his 1987 book The Alchemy of Finance, the multibillionaire speculator and global do-gooder conceded that "I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood, which I felt I had to control, otherwise they might get me into trouble." Now that he has the means to live out the fantasy, it is the rest of us who are in trouble.
This is no ordinary madman, but George Soros, one of the richest men in the world, and it is necessary to pay close attention. In his recent book Soros on Soros, the author describes his financial holdings as "truly awesome," a phrase that describes the scope of his ambition as well. Though he claims to have outgrown his delusions of divinity, his impulse to remake the world in his own image is unabated, inflated beyond reason by the absurd dimensions of his vast fortune.
The result has been the rise of a new force in the world: Sorosism.
Sorosism is an international network of tax-exempt foundations, quasi-political organizations, and "independent" media churning out a great variety of Soroscista propaganda: arcane studies showing the need for a world central bank, a torrent of op-ed pieces calling for "peace" in Bosnia—but not before every ranking officer in the Bosnian Serb army is hanged for "war crimes."
It is a coalition of lobbying groups devoted to increasing the immigrant population and mobilizing it as a political force. It is the Project on Death, a Soros creation, which seeks to transform the American "culture of death." The Soros philanthropic network is, increasingly, the backbone and chief funder of the escalating campaign to decriminalize some drugs.
Most of all, it is Soros the philosopher-king, singular in the scale of his crackbrained grandiosity, who, in expounding his theory of "reflexity," compares himself to Descartes. From deity incarnate to philosopher-king is a demotion, but one that George Soros is willing to live with.
Yet he still claims to rule by divine right: when a journalist suggested that he should be elevated to the Holy See, he asked: "Why? I'm the Pope's boss now."
Soros is not kidding. The sheer scope of his many projects—from shaping the direction of American foreign policy in the post-Cold War world to reformulating the American way of death—is an agenda that not many statesmen have the resources to undertake. But Soros not only has the money, he has the will—and a growing power base among the international elites.
The secret of his success is hinted at in a biography by Robert Slater, who writes: "Soros's most distinctive feature, the trait that explained his investment talents best, was his ability to gain membership in a very exclusive 'club,' a club that included the leadership of the international financial community. No one could apply for membership in this club. Most of the participants were the political and economic leaders in rich countries: prime ministers, finance ministers, heads of central banks."
Soros was a success from the start, establishing an offshore tax haven for immensely wealthy European, Arab, and South American investors. The rule book of this exclusive club, aside from requiring a substantial minimum investment, also contained another very specific clause: no Americans allowed. Soros, who had been naturalized in the early 60's, was the only American citizen permitted to own shares.
But in what sense can Soros be considered an American, other than the strictly formal? He is, in himself, a separate nation, a transnational corporate and political entity that has no borders but only tentacles. As such, he owes no loyalty to any particular state, but only to the good of mankind—which generally seems to coincide with the good of George Soros.
What Soros called "the killing of a lifetime" came about on September 22, 1985. Treasury Secretary James Baker and the finance ministers of the major industrial countries were in secret and solemn conclave at New York City's Plaza Hotel, and were about to devalue the dollar. Soros somehow got wind of it. Working through the night, he bought yen by the barrel. As morning broke, he was $40 million richer. Central banks continued to depress the dollar, and Soros's profits on the deal eventually climbed to $150 million. His greatest coups are due just as often to his friends in Washington as to his much vaunted skill as an entrepreneur, such as when he got wind of a secret government report that predicted the oil crisis. Once again, Soros's private pipeline to inside information swelled his coffers.
Soros's personal coldness permeates his philosophy, Sorosian N4an is a curiously abstract, stripped-down being, devoid not only of ordinary human feeling but also of nationality. Soros, the self-proclaimed "stateless statesman," hates all nationalism, especially the American variety.
Tradition and religion are evidence of "dogmatic thinking." More godlike than human, Sorosian Man has not even the fear of death.
While claiming to be a disciple of the philosopher Karl Popper—whom Soros tried to interest in his ideas, without success—He Who Moves Markets is actually a nihilist who believes that "all mental constructs are flawed" and no true knowledge is ever possible. Everything is uncertain, and "the question is, can we have a set of beliefs based on the recognition that our beliefs are inherently flawed?" It is an investor's view of the world that he projects; reality, like the market, is in constant flux, unpredictable, often capricious; it is not true or false, but only up or down. Soros proposes that "we need three categories—true, false, and reflexive."
What kind of a system would we have if Sorosian economics took hold? Apart from vague references to "social justice," we are given a concrete example in Soros on Soros. In answer to a question about why he changed his mind and decided to invest in Eastern European countries where his foundations have gained some influence, Soros declares that, in Russia, the situation is so desperate that "the pursuit of an abstract good like the open society hardly seems credible. I made the decision to start investing last year at the height of the robber capitalist episode. It seemed to me that to appear as a robber capitalist who is concerned with cultural and political values was more credible than to be a disembodied intellect arguing for the merits of open society. I could serve as a role model for the budding robber capitalists of Russia."
He could serve as a model for robber capitalists everywhere. For here is a man who pioneered—and greatly profited from—the financial instruments known as derivatives now declaring, in testimony before Congress, that he wants to ban derivatives. This is the typical pattern of robber capitalist behavior; make your bundle, and then lock out the competition.
Yet it would be a mistake to write off Sorosism as pure self-aggrandizement; he is far more ambitious than that. As he has often said, the money is just a means to an end, and Soros is busy giving it away. He spent $1.1 billion trying to usher in an "open society" in Russia and Eastern Europe. In 1995, he gave away $350 million, largely to his overseas foundations, and now has turned his sights on the West, the United States in particular. He recently pledged to devote half of his annual giving to five domestic issues; "immigrants rights," drugs, death and dying, education, and reforming the criminal justice system.
His Project on Death in America is a consortium of experts who are far too cautious to come out in favor of legalized euthanasia, although Soros says he cannot see why not. While "there is just as much death as there is sex," says Soros, the former is just not talked about.
It would be a mistake to dismiss Soros as just another wacky multibillionaire who can afford to enact his psychopolitical fantasies on a grand scale, a kind of anti-Ross Perot. His money and his message have gained him an audience in Washington at the highest levels. No one thinks Strobe Talbott was joking when he characterized Soros as "a friendly, allied, independent entity" and explained how "we try to synchronize our approach to the former Communist countries with Germany, France, Great Britain—and with George Soros."
The Soros network of foundations is not the only or even the major factor in his growing influence in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. Through his vast financial holdings, Soros is a far weightier factor in the regional economy than, say, France or even Great Britain. This is especially true in Bosnia, where the Open Society Foundation in Sarajevo has served as a conduit for major projects undertaken by the government of Muslim President Alija Izetbegovic and his Iranian-inspired Party of Democratic Action. Schoolrooms in which the Muslim fundamentalist doctrines of Iranian mullahs are transmitted to a new generation of fanatics were built with Soros's financial and political support. Under the guise of "humanitarian" aid, Soros financed major reconstruction projects that enabled the Bosnian Muslims to continue the war.
“I have confirmed from sources from inside the White House, the Israeli government and Israeli intelligence that the Israelis have intercepted email communications from General McMaster to George Soros, informing him of everything that’s going on inside the White House,” reported Infowars correspondent Roger Stone. “…I have double checked this with two different sources very high up in Israeli intelligence, and I actually expect the Israeli ambassador to the US to confirm this.”
This means, by implication, that McMaster is one of the primary leakers given that Soros has vast ties to the mainstream media.
Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs took the opportunity to criticize Soros when it spoke out against the vandalism of anti-Soros posters in Hungary which were defaced with anti-Semitic graffiti.
“Israel deplores any expression of anti-Semitism in any country and stands with Jewish communities everywhere in confronting this hatred,” stated Foreign Affairs Ministry spokesperson Emmanuel Nahshon. “In no way was the statement meant to delegitimize criticism of George Soros, who continuously undermines Israel’s democratically elected governments by funding organizations that defame the Jewish state and seek to deny it the right to defend itself.”
Soros began infiltrating the National Security Council as early as May when his operative Fiona Hill, a member of the the Council on Foreign Relations and the Soros-funded Eurasia Foundation, joined its staff.
“George Soros has penetrated the Trump White House,” Stone reported. “Soros has planted a mole infiltrating the National Security apparatus: a woman named Fiona Hill, who has a Harvard background, and has been on the Soros payroll and the payroll of the Open Society Institute.”
Hill had previously helped the Soros-founded Central European University in Hungary which has tried to influence the Hungarian government which has defiantly refused EU migrant quotas and Soros’ meddling in its affairs.
“We got unequivocal support [from Fiona Hill’s team at the National Security Council],” said CEU’s rector Michael Ignatieff. “I went up on the Hill and spoke to Republican senators and staff.”
But it’s unlikely that “academic freedom” exists at CEU since it was founded by Soros, a globalist socialist well-known for bankrolling institutions that promote his political agenda – and it’s also no secret that academic institutions are routinely used to steer government policies as part of the interconnected, globalist network of academia, technology, government and media.
