George Soros and how power beats money everytime
By Michael Moriarty
As a graduate of the Ivy League's Dartmouth and a Fulbright Scholar in a Europe that was just waiting to Marx-up the crème de la crème of America's graduating classes, I can well understand why literati, such as Harvard's Norman Mailer -- "revolutionized" in his G.I. Bill of three years at the Sorbonne in Paris -- and other such hungry intellects can be "turned," as they say, into would-be Jean Genets. But a dyed-in-the-wool, honest-to-god billionaire capitalist immigrant from Hungary like George Soros? "What's going on here?" as Frank Salvato asked in a recent Enter Stage Right article.
"Has Mr. Soros lost touch with reality?"
No. He has, like all good gamblers -- and billionaires are nothing if not gamblers -- found the evidence on the table in favor of the United Nations and not at all on the side of the United States. Half a million dead in Rwanda, another quarter million dead in Kosovo and a growing holocaust in the Sudan -- all ostensibly under the watchful eye of UN troops -- is the reality that Salvato would like this Wall Street mogul to be aware of.
Those statistics won't faze the billionaire, though. Soros is not really interested in how many people die from ethnic cleansing and terrorism. As Salvato points out, Soros applauds those nations, like Spain, for their docility before the virtual Gestapo of the New World Order. I'm sure Soros is aware of why the dual leadership of the European Union (Jacques Chirac and Gerhard Schroeder) is welcoming Islam into its domain. He knows that Socialism won't really last unless there is a KGB, Red Guards or al-Qaida to keep the body politic in line. If he's not aware of that, then someone else must have made all that money for him. He did come from formerly Communist Hungary, you know.
The loss of artists to Marx and Engels -- a conscious plot of Stalin, who believed that if the State controls the artists, it controls the hearts and minds of the human race -- is more heartrending to me because some of the "lost" were friends and colleagues of mine. Those middle-European immigrants appear to be the former victims of Communism, but that doesn't necessarily mean they are not Communist. Moscow and Beijing have plotted to infiltrate the highest levels of Wall Street for years. Soros might get a whole chapter in the Post-Modern Revolutionary History of the Human Race. It is power, not money, that assures such an indelible mark. However, it remains to be seen whether Marxists or Judeo-Christians will write the next record of human history.
America is the land of individual freedom and what has delineated our history are the landmarks which individuals, such as Abraham Lincoln, leave. At this point, the only "mark" Soros might leave is of a deeply ungrateful gambler who, in betting on the UN "house," used wealth earned in his adopted country to try and destroy that incredibly generous, vibrant nation -- the United States of America.
Soros figures the house always wins. But this time, he's backing the wrong house.
