If George Soros is so into promoting socialism, why does he go to such lengths to enrich himself often at the expense of others?

I was asked the question in the title so I thought I would provide a short answer with some supporting evidence.

Socialists like Soros are not truly into socialism, they are into control. Envy is the tool and socialism is the vehicle that he and people like him use.

There are essentially three kinds of socialists:

The Control Freak: We are the ruling elite and are born to rule. Follow me and stay out of my way or else…

The Utopian: The Utopian wants to create a perfect society which is impossible. The more they tighten their grip the more slips through their fingers. When Utopians come into power they often lose that naivete and become control freaks.

The Sucker: Those who have swallowed the envy narrative. They see someone else get taxed or punished who has more and that makes them feel better in spite of the fact that they are not better off for it and are in fact, worse off. Why? Because envy corrupts the spirit and the thought process. There are 37% fewer millionaires in the country now than when Obama got elected. If this is all about redistribution of wealth let me ask you –  how much of that money did you get?

Obama while giving a speech to Google blasted the Chamber of Commerce for opposing a raise in the top marginal tax rate to 39.9% because millionaires and billionaires weren’t paying their fair share.

Google paid 2.4% federal tax on 3.1 billion in income. Google doesn’t pay the top marginal rate – small to medium sized businesses called “S-Corps” do.

Google pays the corporate rate and has the influence to get favors in the 60,000 page tax code. Google also makes money overseas and chooses not to repatriate the profits.

Raising the top marginal tax rate doesn’t effect millionaires and billionaires because by and large they do not pay that tax, but small businesses would get soaked. Google and GE pay next to nothing and small to medium domestic business pays 39.9% (albeit with some deductions). This is how President Obama and the leadership of his party define fairness. Now you have just figured out why the largest Wall Street outfits and many other mega-corporations donate to Democrats in such numbers over Republicans.

Hence Norton’s First Law: Big Business loves big government because big government taxes and regulates the small and medium sized domestic competition out of the competition.

The taxes Democrats propose to “soak the rich” always seem to miss those who they demagogue for not paying their fair share. They have been “soaking the rich” for decades and keep missing the target. Why? – LINK

    The question makes no sense. Sorts, love him or hate him (and I tend toward the latter) is not a socialist. In what twisted world is a master capitalist who soak millions into overthrowing the eastern bloc regimes and other closed market systems a socialist? Because he acclaims higher taxes for the mega rich? Come on now. I think you need to get your head out of the blogosphere or you’ll end up debating over non sequiturs like this rather than the real world

    PoliticalArena.org Editor responds –

    Robert,

    George Soros funds almost every radicalized leftist organization, front group, and media smear outfit in the country, and that includes the Socialist ones. Soros may use capitalism and corporatism, but the agenda he pushes is a socialist one and if you had done your homework before posting you would know that, but you didn’t.
