Geaorge Soros on the Capitalist Threat [not quite OT] : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

What kind of society do we want? "Let the free market decide!" is the often-heard response. That response, a prominent capitalist argues, undermines the very values on which open and democratic societies depend. --- Atlantic Monthly (Feb 1997)

A socio/economic treatise by George Soros, whose understanding of the free market system made him among the richest men in the world. Applying my understanding of attitudes about Y2K to this exposition made me shiver. It is not as off-topic as it might appear.


"I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country." --- Thomas Jefferson

Soros is NOT a capitalist. He made his money by influence peddling and special favors of various governments around the world. What he seeks now is to keep his wealth intact.

He is a fascist at best.

You're being too kind to the fascist bastard.

I saw a documentary on him recently, he is Jewish and when in Germany at the age of 14 he helped the Nazis send his fellow Jews off to whatever fate befell them.

When interviewed about this aspect of his upbringing he was totally oblivious to what he had done, no regrets, no compassion whatsoever.

A true and total sociopath IMHO.

Hence the markets fear him because he ansers to only one call.......

He's also well in with Hilary Clinton - enough said... birds of a feather... he decimated the Russian Ruble and S A Rand single- handedly, he almost bankrupted the Bank of England (took me personally for thousands of pounds the swine) - a true and evil man...

-- Andy (, June 07, 1999.

"If the Rothschilds, through the LBMA operations, are effectively cornering the world's gold supply they would undoubtedly be in a prime position to benefit from a currency crisis - which they and Soros undoubtedly expect, given Soro's claims that the Asian, and thus by implication all fiat currencies, are inherently unsustainable. This crisis of sustainability is already engaged in Asia and will undoubtedly wash over Europe, England and the U.S. And who recently announced another bailout package? The IMF, of course."

Soros is well in with the Clintons, the Rothschilds, the LBMA and the NWO who are organising our "new" shackled currency syste, our new tax on e-mail, our new taxes to pay for their army...

So, Andy and Jollyprez, rather than read and comment on the article you have elected to excoriate Mr. Soros. I would have thanked you for your time and consideration, but you have obviously neither spent the former nor exercised the latter. I would have thought better of you.

I have not read the article YET - I will get around to it, however the word SOROS sets off my alarm bells...

-- Andy (, June 07, 1999.

didn't Soros spark the asian money crises?
