George Soros, The Koch Brothers, and others...
« on: February 24, 2017, 02:32:17 PM »
(also: any of the other "This super rich person is funding everything I hate" bogeymen)

Are these guys and their ilk really the huge threats to society/freedom they are made out to be by those that disagree with their policies? Or are they just that... figures with deep pockets that people are angry about because they fund and support causes half the country doesn't like?

Are they subverting the system with their money and influence? Or are they functioning the way the system needs them to keep things moving along without gridlock? Are they too powerful? Are they dangerous? Or are they just bogeymen?

What do you think?

The financiers have agendas they promote to varying degrees of success. They don't have nearly as much power over everything as conspiracy theorists on any "side" would have you believe. They definitely enjoy more power than large numbers of citizens working together though.

Well; they are fantastically powerful, morally bankrupt individuals with their fingers in a lot of power and bucket loads of influence.

Take that for what you will.

Pretty much.  The same for the Rothchilds.  There are stupidly wealthy people who have certain agendas out there, but they don't control the world as some would have you believe.
