A Portrait of Evil: “George Soros”

George Soros.  George Soros. George Soros.  Normally I don’t post entire articles from other publications, because I believe it is important to drive my readers to the site I found the information I choose to share.  The following article breaks my rule, because it so correctly portrays this ‘evil’ person.  If ever there were a waste of human tissue; that is George Soros.  Please read the full article and PLEASE share it with everyone you know, because this is the evil we are fighting to retain, regain and restore the United States to the dream of ‘every’ American Citizen.

Roger Simon and Roger Kimball of Pajamas Media recently wrote some articles on George Soros.  You can find them here and here.

George Soros is a leading financier of the far left wing establishment.  If you are far left wing in your views, you ought to know who you are getting into bed with.

“George’s father Theodore tried to change the family’s fortunes by changing their name to something less Jewish-sounding. It didn’t help. And soon war came.

When the Nazis took total control of Hungary in 1944, the Holocaust followed. In two months, 440,000 Hungarian Jews were deported to death camps.

To survive, George, then a teenager, collaborated with the Nazis.

First he worked for the Judenrat. That was the Jewish council set up by the Nazis to do their dirty work for them. Instead of the Nazis rounding up Jews every day for the trains, they delegated that murderous task to Jews who were willing to do it to survive another day at the expense of their neighbours.”

In the Ottawa Sun, Ezra Levant gleans this gem about Soros past,

“No feeling of guilt?” asked Kroft. “No,” said Soros. “There was no sense that I shouldn’t be there. If I wasn’t doing it, somebody else would be taking it away anyhow. Whether I was there or not. So I had no sense of guilt.”

A Nazi would steal the Jews’ property anyways. So why not him?

That moral hollowness has shaped Soros’ life. He’s a rabid critic of capitalism, but in 1992 when he saw a chance, he speculated against the British pound, causing it to crash, devastating retirement savings for millions of Britons. Soros pocketed $1.1 billion for himself. If he didn’t do it, someone else would, right?

In 2002, Soros was convicted of insider trading in France, and fined millions of dollars. He admitted buying the shares, but denied it was a crime.

Last year, when he made $3.3 billion off the banking collapse, he called the world’s financial crisis “the culmination of my life’s work.”

This is a man who boasted he offered to help his mother commit suicide. Apparently he didn’t see enough death in Hungary.

However, in spite of how despicable Soros is as a human being, ignore it. What motivates him? Why does he cast his lot with the far left?

Soros is hyper competitive. He will do what ever is necessary to win. He doesn’t care what or who he leaves in his wake. No loyalty to causes, Soros can be bought. If you were playing a simple board game, Soros would cheat to win if he thought you were getting an edge on him. Winning at all costs is what motivates him.

Soros made his money in the capital markets, but it was simply convenient. The siren song of the capital markets is that you can quickly take a small pile of money and wind up with a fortune. You only have to be right, and have good timing. In Soros case, he injected himself into the inside. When he made millions trading stock, the trades were inside trades. When he made billions off the drop in the British Pound in 1992, he didn’t put the position on without knowing intricate inner workings of the British government and financial authority. He never takes a shot in the dark.

Soros is entirely without emotion. Great traders are able to assimilate information and act unemotionally on it. Along with having some of the greatest inside edges in human history, Soros looks at data and churns out a trade. Investors in his funds are investing in that, and in his connections. His ability to worm into top levels of governments is valuable.

No action undertook by Soros is random. When he donates money, it’s for a purposeful endgame. When he grants an interview, it’s to send a message, or to try and shape something. It’s entirely about himself and winning.

What is the one concept that all hard left ideas have in common? Central planning. If Soros can turn the American government, and economy into one centrally planned place, he wins. He will control it and feather his nest. Crony capitalism will reign, and he will be the biggest crony.

Freidrich Hayak wrote about “the wisdom of crowds”. This is a very dangerous, possibly debilitating, concept to people like Soros. No one man can control crowds. The Tea Party movement has no central leader. But it has a persistent viral idea that is an anathema to a person like Soros. Free will and a marketplace of ideas. Individual rights over the rights of a central government. No central planning.

Decentralization unleashes randomness in markets that drive people like Soros crazy. It makes it much harder to compete. It increases the amount of risk on each trade. It’s much less valuable to be an insider. It’s much harder to cheat and win the game.

However, in the history of markets, decentralization always increases the standard of living of people over the long term. It accomplishes this task over the long term much more efficiently than any alternative. Innovations are unleashed. The entirety of humanity is lifted up.

Soros isn’t interested in any of that. What’s good for George, is good for everyone.
