George Soros Returns to the Political Ring

Our political landscape has been dramatically changing, reinventing itself over the past decade or so. With the 2016 election being one for the history books, the United States now feels more divided than ever. The right and left wing don’t seem to be coming any closer to compromise and now President Trump is furthering that divide. All of this discord has brought one of the biggest democratic and progressive figures right back into the spotlight. George Soros, seeing the existential threat that President Trump poses, ended up returning to the fray in order to help fight for progressive values around the world.

If you haven’t heard of George Soros then that is probably how he would like it. Soros is a Hungarian born New York investor who made his fortune with the Soros Hedge Fund. Soros survived Nazi-occupied Hungary before emigrating London to study finance as well as philosophy. While studying in London Soros developed his mindset into that of a staunch progressive: he saw what bad men would do with power and never wanted it to happen again. So it makes total sense that Soros would return to help fund Hillary Clinton’s campaign as she ran for election opposite of Donald Trump. Despite Clinton’s loss, Soros still managed to fund-raise nearly $25 million for a variety of different democratic and progressive causes.

Now George Soros is here to stay, ready to keep up the battle as he pushes back against President Trump’s thinly veiled attempt at nationalism and oligarchy. Soros has been laying the groundwork for years to fight back with progressive values both in America and around the world. His work with the Open Society Foundations has been instrumental in getting a grassroots democratic campaign going that could rival that of the Tea Party on the far right.

In fact, you can look to the Ferguson Protests which shed so much light on inequality and police brutality against minorities in cities across the country. When Michael Brown was shot dead by Officer Wilson, the world took notice due to the protests. Soros himself has funded grassroots campaigns and activists in order to get protests like Ferguson up and rolling. His attempt to shed a light on injustice in order to engineer social change has been a cornerstone of the progressive conversation for years upon years. The Ferguson protests in particular brought about a ton of attention to George Soros and his cause.

George Soros is a staunch progressive as well as one of the most giving philanthropists on the planet. Having Soros back in the swing of things can mean only good things for social justice, democracy, and the push to engineer change on a global level for the good of humanity. George Soros established the Open Society Foundations.

Lori Senecal is one of the best success stories in the advertising and marketing sphere that has ever been seen. With a schoolteacher as a mother, a shop owner as a father, and three other siblings in the home, it was very hard to get everything that she wanted.

In this role, Lori really made her mark on the industry by seeing innovation as the future and embracing new technologies for use in marketing and advertising.
