I admit that I have always harbored an exaggerated view of self-importance — to put it bluntly, I fancied myself as some kind of god.
— George Soros, The Alchemy of Finance: Reading the Mind of the Market, 1994
George Soros, in his consistent habit of resisting media venues that might challenge his profound intellectual musings, sat down with the Washington Post and lamented the election of President Donald Trump while complaining of destructive traits he’s exhibited and imposed on the world for decades.
Soros has destroyed the currency of a nation, meddled in the internal elections of countries, funneled millions of dollars into liberal nonprofits that undermine the votes of the majority of Americans, and has made his money on speculation; not creating anything of real value.
But he thinks he has and that’s all that matters.
It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.
— George Soros, The Independent, 1993
Now he seeks to spend “at least $15 million” to manipulate the 2018 midterm elections to undo the mandate the American people entrusted to Donald Trump and what’s left of the Republican Party, despite the numerous successes the president’s policies that have improved the lives of millions of people; not just in the United States but around the world.
“I have had these illusions, or perhaps delusions, of grandeur and they have driven me.” He has also said that his “goal is to become the conscience of the world.”
— New York Times, 2002
While he’s never dared stick his own neck out and run for an office, George Soros knows better.
Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad.
— George Soros, British television interview, 2004
And he calls Donald Trump a dangerous “narcissist”.
