Business Leader, Caring for the Community, Political Activists

George Soros, the billionaire from New York, has always been associated with the Democrats since he started his hedge fund empire. He has had long-term relations with some key members of the party, especially the Clintons and has backed them publicly for office.

The 85-year-old hedge fund billionaire made his fortune which is estimated to be around $25 billion through risky currency trade. He had never shied away from sharing his fortune with the Democrats with a good example being in 2004 when he pledged $27 million in an attempt to defeat President George W. Bush and supporting other Democrat candidates. Know more about George Soros on Business Insider.

After the way the events turned out, George Soros reduced his political donations and did his best to avoid the political center stage. Instead, he focused on running his business and supporting his charity foundations around the world.

Recently, Soros emerged and publicly aired his support for Hillary Clinton as the Democrat’s presidential candidate. He made an impressive financial contribution of over $25 million towards her campaign. According to his political advisor, Soros was more interested in the election as he believed that the stakes were high. He also didn’t support Donald Trump’s political and economic views and saw his policies as those of instilling fear into people rather than offering them security.

George Soros has always taken an interest in shaping and transforming political environments to what he calls “Open Societies.” He believes that societies should be formed around “universally” accepted principles that work to enhance the welfare of all mankind.

For this reason, he has used his wealth to fund various organizations around the world that share his views. He has also established more than 70 Open Society Foundations around the world that are charged with transforming the political and social environments of the people.

Considering his childhood background where he was forced to live in a German-occupied Hungary, one can only see where his need and urge to bring a change in the political field originated. He was from a Jewish family at the time where Jews were widely persecuted in Germany and other Germany-occupied territories.

George Soros has always played a major role in philanthropy. He began his quest in 1979, and in 1984, he had already established an Open Society Foundation in Hungary.

Caring for the Community

When Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were working as reporters, they found information about their local sheriff that they thought the public deserved to know. As an official, they felt that he needed to be exposed for the corrupt things that went on with the department.

For that reason, they made sure that they published the information that they found so that people would not have to worry about not knowing the secrets that the sheriff had. It was something that was difficult for people to be able to get but also something that made the sheriff’s office realize that what they were doing was wrong.

The sheriff eventually found out that the information had been published and it made him look bad. He had his department arrest the men illegally and try to charge them with a crime that they didn’t do. The press has a right to freely publish any information which they have obtained legally (which the men had) and arresting them for it was a direct violation of their own human rights. It also went against the constitutional rights that the men had since they were in the United States when this happened.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin decided that they would fight the case. They knew that they would be able to do this because they had a lot of money and because they were confident that they didn’t do anything wrong.

This was something that they had been doing for years and never once had they been charged and sentenced for crimes that were associated with them doing things like publishing information about different things in the corruption of law enforcement facilities. They made the decision to fight it and they were able to win thanks to the fact that they really didn’t do anything wrong.

One thing that the men knew is that they didn’t want anyone else to have to deal with the same problems that they did. They also knew that some people would not be able to fight the charges in the way that they did.

 Jim and Michael got a huge settlement from the sheriff’s office for the damages that they had to deal with as a result. Instead of using the settlement for their own good, they decided to create the Frontera Fund for the good of everyone else who may have to deal with human rights violations in the future.
