The Real-Life Bond Villain

George Soros is just about as creepy and scary as they get. Yeah, the world has a lot of scary guys, but none of them with the wealth and power of Soros. Forget his past as a youthful, Jewish Nazi collaborator in a Nazi death camp, his present is quite disturbing enough. He has made his vast fortune by manipulating national currencies thus profiting from, and some say causing economic misery on a national scale. He has clearly walked away from that heady experience with a life-long god complex and a megalomania most can only imagine. He's a far left sugar daddy who freely bankrolls all manner of socialist causes while being a ruthless capitalist that would make J.D. Rockefeller look like Ghandi.

Behold his most recent project:
Where's 007 when you need him?
Two years ago, George Soros said he wanted to reorganize the entire global economic system. In two short weeks, he is going to start - and no one seems to have noticed.

On April 8, a group he's funded with $50 million is holding a major economic conference and Soros's goal for such an event is to "establish new international rules" and "reform the currency system." It's all according to a plan laid out in a Nov. 4, 2009, Soros op-ed calling for "a grand bargain that rearranges the entire financial order."

The event is bringing together "more than 200 academic, business and government policy thought leaders' to repeat the famed 1944 Bretton Woods gathering that helped create the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. Soros wants a new 'multilateral system," or an economic system where America isn't so dominant.

More than two-thirds of the slated speakers have direct ties to Soros. The billionaire who thinks "the main enemy of the open society, I believe, is no longer the communist but the capitalist threat" is taking no chances.

Thus far, this global gathering has generated less publicity than a spelling bee. And that's with at least four journalists on the speakers list, including a managing editor for the Financial Times and editors for both Reuters and The Times. Given Soros's warnings of what might happen without an agreement, this should be a big deal. But it's not.

What is a big deal is that Soros is doing exactly what he wanted to do. His 2009 commentary pushed for "a new Bretton Woods conference, like the one that established the post-WWII international financial architecture." And he had already set the wheels in motion.
What a duplicitous bastard; he decries the "capitalist threat", yet is he not one of the most successful capitalists on the planet? Therein lies the basic fallacy of the socialist mindset - they are quite content with destroying the capital of others, but personally, they feel exempt.

We should always be wary of those with a "for thee but not for me" mentality and it's easy to find on the left.
