George Soros recommits himself to destroying nationalism

An Analysis: Open Society Foundation receives $18bn infusion by controversial philanthropist to further globalist, secular humanist causes

George Soros pledged that he would renew his fight against the ideology of nationalism, admitting at the same time that the experiment of the European Union is near breaking down.  Reported on January 15th by Breitbart News, the billionaire currency speculator was quoted by the Financial Times as saying:

It’s deja vu all over again with one big change – the dominant ideology in the world now is nationalism… It’s the EU that’s the institution that’s on the verge of a breakdown… And Russia is the resurgent power, based on nationalism.”

Mr. Soros is one of the major players in the world in terms of advancing the concept of globalization.  In so doing, he has managed to help partially demonize the idea of national sovereignty, and this effort has met with quite a bit of success in many ways.  So for him, the idea that the nation-state would be the primary way of governance, rather than a “global community”, is repugnant enough that the 87-year-old put US $18 billion of his own wealth into the Open Society Foundations to further the crusade he thinks is so important.

Soros is often held to account as an “evil man” and there are a number of conspiracy theories about his group’s interference in traditional social and national causes.  Not all of these conspiracies are true, but not all of them aren’t.  Having been witness to Open Society-spawned interference in the matter of adolescent drug treatment programs, it is easy to see both how subtle and how powerful his group’s influence can be.

But, lest we at The Duran be considered simply another room in the echo chamber that demonizes Mr. Soros, let’s try to examine what the actual issues are with him.  Why is an 87-year-old man from Hungary considered so dangerous that he is not allowed in Russia, and is hated by his own countrymen, and feared by so many people around the world?  There must be some basis.  We start to explore that now.

George Soros and the Open Society Foundation – The pursuit of Utopia

George Soros is one of a select number of individual who epitomize the character of radical secular humanism.  He is successful, extremely wealthy and financially astute, with the ability to make money from any and every turn of financial, social and political events.  He is, to quote C.S. Lewis, “dreadfully practical.” To be dreadfully practical does not sound very positive.  And in his case, this is true.  His Open Society Foundation promotes causes that on the surface often look to be quite compassionate and kind.  But in reality, these policy directions promote decay and death.  The reason for this is simply because they are based in the theological framework of “secular humanism.”

Note that we used the word theological. This is absolutely the case, and it is well insulated because most secular Western media outlets will not dare to report “theology in action” as the source of a variety of policies and events that shape the world around us.  Theology is of course, the study of religious faith, practice, and experience primarily. But it centers around some ultimate source, or Source, if you will. Every philosophy of life has a theological undercurrent to explain the “why” of why we subscribe to the teachings in question. The “religion” of secular humanism has its own pseudo-theology. Understanding its basis helps us decrypt the dangers of modern-day progressivism.
