Soros: Education

After surviving WWII Soros moved to London and attended the (LSE) London School of Economics.  A school founded by the Fabian Society.   

At LSE Soros studied philosophy and was mentored by atheist philosopher Karl Popper who taught Open Society. The Open Society philosophy guided Soros as he began conquering the business world through hedge funds, investing and marketing, (in 1984 Soros organized Open Society Institute) .  For more information on Karl Popper one can go to http://www.hoover.org/publications/hoover-digest/article/8018,   .  

In 1956 Soros moved to New York City and worked on Wall Street where he learned to combine Open Society philosophy with the markets and earn his billions.  This is where it starts to get interesting…

For a sneak peak of what is to come in future posts, you can read this article that highlights some of Soros’ own words and philosophies,http://www.theblaze.com/stories/in-his-own-words-an-examination-of-some-of-soros-socioeconomic-philosophies/ 


FABIAN SOCIETY:  A movement to bring about democratic socialism via gradual reform instead of through revolutionary effort…for more information please Google George Bernard Shaw… there are many things written about this famous socialist playwright who won a Nobel Prize for Literature.  He has been portrayed by both liberals and conservatives in various lights.  To help clarify his character below is a link to a video clip of him speaking, (typed below for clarity) regarding the value of human life.  Here is just a snippet of this interview:

George Bernard Shaw, I don’t want to punish anybody, but there are an extraordinary number of people who I might want to kill…I think it would be a good thing to make everybody come before a properly appointed board just as he might come before the income tax commissioner and say every 5 years or every 7 years…just put them there and say , ‘Sir or madam will you be kind enough to justify your existence…if you’re not producing as much as you consume or perhaps a little bit more then clearly we cannot use the big organization of our society for the purpose of keeping you alive. Because your life does not benefit us and it can’t be of very much use to yourself.’
