This week, the government of Hungary passed legislation practically forcing the university out of Hungary. Liberals in Hungary have been protesting, and standard accusations have been hurled at Prime Minister Orban and his Fidesz party by “progressives” both in Hungary and beyond. There are many, however, who strongly applaud the move.
In Hungary, or anywhere in Central Europe, there could be no more destructive agent than “Soros University”, a Soros-founded and Soros-funded Central European University, CEU, located in Budapest. George Soros, a billionaire philanthropist, has provided an endowment of $880 million, making the university one of the wealthiest in Europe. Why such generosity?
Soros has repeatedly said that he sees himself as a messianic figure. Who but a person with a grandiose self image would make the following statements? “I admit that I have always harbored an exaggerated view of my self-importance – to put it bluntly, I fancied myself as some kind of god” or “ I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood, which I felt I had to control; otherwise, I might end up in the loony bin.” The way it looks, he has not been able or has not tried hard enough to control his fantasies, but by no means did he end up in the loony bin. As one of the wealthiest men in the world, he was able to go aggressively forward in realizing his fantasies by successfully promoting a radical, “progressive,” globalist agenda in Europe, the US, and many other parts of the world.
His flagship political organization is The Open Society Institute, founded in 1993. The group’s name is inspired by Karl Popper’s 1945 book, The Open Society and Its Enemies. The organization’s projects implement Globalist agenda and Cultural Marxism. Soros believes that a democratic state must seek to erase its ethnic identity and any traces of cultural heritage. He wants to erase all differences between people and countries, so he supports multiculturalism and open borders. Soros has also provided funding for abortion rights, atheism, drug legalization, sex education, euthanasia, feminism, GLBTQ rights, same sex marriage legislation, gun control, globalization, mass immigration and other radical experiments in social engineering.
Where to better promote the Globalist and Social Marxist agenda if not among young impressionable minds at educational institutions? In the US and in Western Europe, most young people have been successfully infected by the “progressive“ virus. In Central and Eastern Europe, that level of brainwashing among students is still rare. So, here comes “the messiah” with his Central European University. It is a graduate school in several soft disciplines devoted to furthering Soros “open society” with torrents of toxic pap ranging from its Doctor of Philosophy in Comparative Gender Studies and Master of Arts in Human Rights programs through courses entitled “The African Human Rights System” and “Comparative Equality” to its April 3 special lecture, “Inclusion and Exclusion in Europe: Migration, Work and Employment Perspectives.”
The university has 11,440 students. 330 are from Hungary, and the rest are from 107 countries. Through the years of its operating, the university has released into small Hungary alone a flood of “progressive” ideologues. Prime Minister Orban and other officials from the Hungary governing Fidesz Party appropriately and rightfully saw CEU as a bastion of liberalism and recognized it as a threat to Hungarian societal values and Hungary’s interests. The new law requires foreign universities to gain agreement for their foreign operations from their home government as well as from Hungary. It also requires institutions to have a permanent educational program in their country of origin, as well as in Hungary. To continue operating in Hungary, CEU would need to offer programs in New York State, where it is chartered. This could be an insurmountable hurdle for the university but a drop in the bucket for Soros and his goals.
Soros is not only an advocate for social engineering. With his practically unlimited financial resources and his zeal, he has been one of the most influential social engineers and possibly the most influential social engineer for a few decades now, not only in Europe but in the world, since the tentacles of his Open Society Institutes reach all parts of the globe. Over the last three decades, the Open Society Foundations had expenditures of more than $13 billion. OSF has branches in 37 countries, encompassing foundations such as Open Society Initiative for West Africa and Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa. The scope of OSF’s reach can be seen on the following website. http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/viewSubCategory.asp?id=1237
George Soros has been accused of influencing elections, orchestrating “color revolutions,” organizing violent protests, paying for the importation of illegal immigrants to Europe and many other large scale nefarious activities, many of which he proudly admits to and takes credit for. Numerous Soros funded NGOs with innocuous sounding names are strongly influencing social and political life in many countries. It’s imperative that this dangerous neo Marxist, Globalist strongman be widely exposed and opposed by the citizens and governments that do not share his vision for the world. It can be done. Hungary serves as proof and the example to follow.
