A Life Full Of Giving

– When Mr. Soros Defines Philanthropy

It often takes the rich to really define what philanthropy means. It’s clear that none of us can truly give unless we have something to actually give. When we do ourselves, we can then redefine what philanthropy means. Until then, the world watches George Soros lead a path for others to follow. This path is both for the rich and poor.

Of the rich, Mr. Soros has been able to set the standard which we know today as charity.

Among the poor, he’s been able offer inspiration. And that inspiration is one where societies across the planet witness what’s possible with charity work. When you have the leverage to decide how resources affect nations, then you have the power to make a real impact.

Giving, Giving And Then Some More

This type of impact is something we’ve seen for quite some time now. All that we can describe it as is giving, giving, and then some more. Just when we think George Soros felt that his charitable work was complete, he had more in store. His announcement, for example, that he would retire from charity work shocked the entire globe.

It was only when another opportunity to truly make a world impact came along did George return from his charitable retirement. That opportunity was with Hilary Clinton. When the former president’s wife announced that she would run for office, George Soros immediately contacted the Hilary PAC and made a donation.

The act alone enabled George Soros to define what philanthropy really means to the world.

What We Can Expect From George In The Future

It’s safe say that these acts give us a clear clue of what we can expect from George Soros in the future. It’s not likely that he’ll be as active as he has been in the past. Nevertheless, it’s also clear that Mr. Soros will find it difficult to walk away from giving a helping hand to the world.

From the Open Society Foundation and more, this man is sure to answer to the world when it’s in need. The real question which resides with us is when that will happen. For now, only tomorrow can tell. Read this story at Politico.com about George Soros.

Politics, Liberalism, Money and George Soros

Politics is a very complex field for any person to be involved. The realm of politics is not easy to deal with. Trying to provide solutions to people’s lives is not always a strait forward process. Trying to govern people fairly is very hard to accomplish. Even under the guidance of the Constitution, political figures still have problems with ensuring that they are ruling society without violating the rights of its people.

Another problem with politics has to do with money and funding. While it is true that a person can run office if they choose to do so; without enough funding and backing, they won’t be running very far. A political candidate needs money to advertise their agenda, to promote themselves in the political arena and to travel.

So, unless they are incredibly wealthy themselves; many political candidates have a need for rich supporters. Many political figures often align themselves (and it is the other way around too) with wealthy figures who stand behind their ideology. They also do this with companies as well. Once again, they need money from wealthy people, businesses and organizations to ensure that they stand a chance of being elected. Know more on businessinsider.com about George Soros.

This belief is not just for Americans but for people all over the Earth.
