In a recent interview, progressive billionaire and political activist George Soros pledged to “fight back” against the “dominant ideology” of nationalism, at the same time acknowledging that the European Union — a globalist experiment — is “on the verge of a breakdown.”

According to the Financial Times, Soros’s Open Society Foundations once “epitomized the optimism about the spread of Western-style democracy” after the fall of the Soviet Union. But the scrutiny Soro’s global progressive organization is currently experiencing during a rise in patriotism and populism is described by the Financial Times as the “wilting” attraction of the leftist agenda.

Referring to the collapse of the USSR, Soros said, “It’s déjà vu all over again, with one big change — the dominant ideology in the world now is nationalism … It’s the EU that’s the institution that’s on the verge of a breakdown. And Russia is now the resurgent power, based on nationalism.”

Soros, 87, had considered shuttering the OSF prior to his death, but the rise of the world’s citizenry against globalism and progressive interests prompted him to transfer $18 billion into the fund in October 2017. He also committed to remain chairman of the organization for another five years — or longer.

“I think you can say I’m quite lucky with my enemies,” Soros said. “It makes me feel more than ready to fight back and stand up for what is right.”

Soros’ financial investment in a situation assists him in determining “what is right,” according to Breitbart News. In a 1998 “60 Minutes” interview, Soros described himself as “one person who at one time engages in amoral activity and the rest of the time tries to be moral.”

Central European nations have vehemently opposed interventions by Soros. The Hungarian government has contended that Soros is behind the EU’s open borders plan which would allow millions of Middle Eastern and African people into member countries through the institutionalization of mass migration.
