520 George Soros -- universally known for his philanthropy,
progressive politics, and investment success--has been
under sustained attack from the far right, nationalists,
and anti-Semites in the United States and around the world
because of his commitment to open society and liberal
democracy. In this brilliant and spirited book, Soros
brings together a vital collection of his writings, some
never previously published. They deal with a wide range of
important and timely topics: the dangers that the
instruments of control produced by artificial intelligence
and machine learning pose to open societies; what Soros
calls his "political philanthropy"; his founding of the
Central European University, one of the world's foremost
defender of academic freedom; his philosophy; his boom/
bust theory of financial markets and its policy
implications; and what he calls the tragedy of the
European Union. Soros's forceful affirmation of freedom,
democracy, the rule of law, human rights, social justice,
and social responsibility as a universal idea is a clarion
call-to-arms for the ideals of open society.
