Msgr. Charles Pope: What Ails Us? The Rise of the Imperial, Autonomous SelfJune 13, 2018
Billionaire George Soros, one of the chief archenemies of Liberty1, has a complaint. “Everything that could go wrong, has gone wrong,” he said over the weekend. Why? Because people around the world are rising up to reject the leftist, socialist, globalist worldview that Soros has spent billions to push.
“Apparently,” he lamented of Donald Trump’s unexpected election win, “I was living in my own bubble.” Now he fears that Trump is “willing to destroy the world.”
As The Daily Wire’s Emily Zanotti put it2, “Soros seems to believe that the rise of anti-establishment leaders like President Donald Trump and far-right politicians in Europe isn’t the result of widespread dissatisfaction with the results of lenient immigration policies or concerns for western civilization, but, instead, the result of Soros simply being ahead of his time, and far too forward-thinking for the rest of us rubes.”
Ironically, of course, it’s exactly Soros’s brand of arrogant thinking that led to Trump and other anti-establishment movements. Funny, people don’t always enjoy being told what to think and do.
