The modern world isn’t very dissimilar from the past, in that one can still discover poor citizens who are oppressed, despite the genuine progresses in technology and also science. The destitute are often being taken advantage of, as its impracticable for them to protect themselves in a legal capacity. Lawyers are usually costly and complicated to locate. Being underprivileged often subjects them to medical problems also, due to inadequate access to decent food and medical facilities. This often forces the underprivileged to turn to trying cannabis as an outlet for easing their anguish and torment, a crime in America for which the poor are susceptible to imprisonment. George Soros doesn’t accept this injustice and George has the funds with which he can do something to prevent it.
Mr. Soros created a charity branded as Open Society Foundation, for helping the underprivileged and people who are up against adversity from using cannabis, and they are now incarcerated; and for people who have no education but want to earn one. The branding for his organization came from a time when George lived in war-torn Hungary. He was facing the evils of Nazi oppressors because George is a Jew. George’s surname was originally Schwartz, and George changed it to Soros hoping to fool the Nazis into thinking that George wasn’t a Jew. Following the war ending, George left for London to earn a Master’s degree at the School of Economics. George holds two degrees; one is in the area of philosophy, and the other is in economics. The branding for George’s charity organization came from his philosophy studies. George was occupied with the concepts of Karl Popper, the prominent philosopher who said that if the planet is to ever become highly developed and experience the splendor of positive unity, which all people living on the globe needed to be outside of oppression’s reach. Constructing an open and free society is required to accomplish that goal. To that end, Mr. Soros desires to use his wealth to achieve that objective. Learn more about George at Biography.com
George’s organization helps the needy locate lawyers to defend their civil liberties, provide money for medical treatments which the poor generally are not be able to access, and to fund their academic dreams, because if the citizens are all educated, the people can care for themselves. George Soros has helped lawyers release many poor people, who were locked away because they couldn’t pay for a qualified lawyer to represent their case to a court of law. He has also given millions to aid Presidential campaigns for political office, to skilled candidates that George realized would enact a positive transformation, for instance Hillary Clinton.
