It is the worst threat for our world and cultures. With so much money on hand, why not meddle with the world and get involved in regulatory overreach.
The Age of Fallibility: Consequences of the War on Terror by George Soros
Here is what he says Soros connects the dot’s to this one grand problem, and the offers a grand solution that humanity must undertake before it’s to late. However, I have serious issues with how much power one human being can have by using his money.
Lists with This Book. Soros started out as a philosopher, moved on to make his fortune, and since then has used that money to become an inspired and truly impressive philanthropist. The editorial piqued my interest and so I looked him up and discovered this book.
There should be laws against this kind of financial megalomania. His ideas around the ‘feel good’ and ‘open’ societies are good, and and can be books in themselves. It challenges the hegemonic attitudes that have prevailed for most of the century. Sroos troubling to me, was that Soros himself writing back in didn’t seem convinced that ordinary people would flourish in his Open Society.
He talks about philosophy, war, and global warming. His ideas around the slros good’ an I do like this book, but I don’t think that it is a fantastic book. He’s a leftist version of Fallibilit Trump in many ways on how he views the power his money has given him.
It now reads, to me, a bit like Hitler’s Mein Kampf – a book I have read to about the half-way point. Dfshever rated it it was amazing Oct 08, Sep 30, Phred rated it it was amazing.

I did not actually finish this book. I do get the impression that he does walk the talk.

We can only solve these problems with global cooperati Very interesting overview of the current world situation as seen fallibilify someone with a lot of world-stage experience.
A second reading might be necessary to grasp a deeper understanding. The Age of Fallibility is very well written and presents very georgd theories in an easy to grasp from.
We an say how USA arogant to others. The Age of Fallibility: Understanding reality means we create a model or picture in our mind which is correspond with it. And the bad thing is sofos countries follow and support US.
Soros has been piloried by bombastic conservative and timid Americans alike.
After reflecting on his support of a losing Democrat for president, George Soros steps back to revisit his views on why George Fxllibility policies around the world fall short in the arenas most important to Soros: The first half of the book is dedicated to Soros’ theory of reflexivity. It means that reality is exist around us and waiting for us to understand it. It was shocking to read how George Soros has no compunction about using his billions to create political global change.
He is willing to admit his own fallibility, and this is something I like.
But it is a good way to gain some understanding of what makes such a man tick! A very good read.
