Wow...my family was in hiding too and raised as non Jews...but helping taking stuff for the Nazi's.......well maybe he had to do that to survive....I won't judge him too much for that, but why does he judge Rush and so many others just because they have a different political view! The war really made this Soros guy mentally sick!
You judge others because they have a different political view, does that mean the war made you mentally sick?

Since he's using his money to help the people of the world I'd say the lesson he took away from the war was a profound one.

i think that realistically mr. soros can be seen as nothing but a profiteer. first you might want to read this article on how he accumulated wealth during the subprime:
Soros 2nd Biggest Housing Crisis Profiteer | Sweetness & Light
i have already posted on how he broke the bank of england as a currency manipulator and how he sees this american crisis as the culmination of his life's work:
http://sweetness-light.com/archive/s...-of-lifes-work

it is always interesting that people see him as a generous "philanthropist". people who give their money away should wind up with less money (by the very nature of giving), however "philanthropists" like gates, buffet, and soros always seem to wind up with even more money as they promote their generosity.....

They dont use piggy banks, you know.

The "life's work" quote - looks like neither you nor the blogger read it in context. Or maybe the blogger didnt expect you to read...?

Why not read the actual interview, instead of some ignorant blogger's interpretation?

Profits from dealing with the Nazis?

Is this thread about George Soros, or is it about Prescott Bush?

Open Society Institute - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Initiatives | Open Society Institute

Aiding Post-Communist Societies: A Better Way?: "The common purpose of the Soros foundations is to promote societies that are open both internally and to the world. The emphasis on open societies reflects George Soros's belief that 'we need a forum of social organization which allows people with different opinions and different interests to live together in peace. . . . Open society not only allows but requires everyone to think for himself and make his own choices. This brings freedom, innovation, and prosperity.'[3] A major emphasis of the Soros foundations is educational assistance, supporting the revamping of postcommunist primary, secondary, and university educational systems, and helping tens of thousands of persons in postcommunist societies to travel to the West for short to medium periods to study or to participate in international conferences or other forms of professional development and foreign exposure. Other principal focuses include media development, human rights, cultural renovation, and civil society development generally."

What does the Open Society Institute do that you disagree with?

Also, could you please give a link to Rush Limbaugh's philanthropic foundation(s)?

Ahhh,so this is a game of who does better....I thought it was about Soros helping the Nazis by collaborating in the confiscation of property from Jews...
