Soros is a man of many caps. Most notably is his involvement with politics of the United States of America. He is by far the most consistent public donor to campaign kitties. Soros alone is said to have contributed to more than $25 million to boost the election bid of Hillary Clinton and other Democratic candidates. This generous contribution is not only seen as a means to promote his vision for a democratic and socially just America, but also as a gesture of goodwill to a long time friend. The Clintons are said to have a relationship spanning almost 25 years with Soros. This contribution was also an aim to promote a candidate who was friendly to democratic policies and social inclusion given his public stance against the volatile rhetoric spread by Hillary Clinton’s competitor.
Soros fight against undemocratic leaders is not confined within the borders of the United states but also beyond. He has on several occasions used his vast amount of wealth to fund campaigns to oust authoritarian regimes in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Most of these movements were conducted through street protests for instance, the Velvet revolutions. From the streets to corridors of power, Soros influence ensured that his message was clear to Incumbent leaders who refused to give up power. There are some specific examples of Soros acts of valor. Soros funded a legislation in 1976 that sought to compel the Czech government to recognize basic human rights. This is just but a few of his massive involvement in the fight for basic human rights.
In an attempt to reach more avenues for funding, Soros came up with the Democratic Alliance. This organization was created in order to consolidate funds from like minded individuals who had a knack for fighting for democracy and social injustice. It was some sort of fund whose proceeds were used to support non-profit groups, human rights organizations and political entities that reflected the agenda of the Alliance. This organization has been able to collect large amounts of money to fund noble causes. This can be attributed to its operational strategy where members are anonymous and are not subjected to public scrutiny. The group has been known to fund liberal groups, watchdog groups, ethic groups and so on.
