Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

Haven't watched yet, but am quite familiar with him.

Yesterday zerohedge.com reported, "one of the bigger losers from the Brexit referendum was none other than Soros," who as it turned out had put his money where his "doom and gloomy" Guardian Op-Ed was and as a spokesman said, Soros was long the pound before Britain’s vote to leave the European Union on Friday, and didn’t “speculate against sterling while he was arguing for Britain to remain.”

This really seems to about critcising different philosophies about open societies; arguments with no end.

Quote:Billionaire investor and progressive-left political activist George Soros, a disciple of Karl Popper,[21] has argued that sophisticated use of powerful techniques of subtle deception borrowed from modern advertising and cognitive science by conservative political operatives such as Frank Luntz and Karl Rove casts doubt on Popper's original conception of open society.[22] Because the electorate's perception of reality can easily be manipulated, democratic political discourse does not necessarily lead to a better understanding of reality.[22] Soros argues that besides the requirements for the separation of powers, free speech, and free elections, we also need to make explicit a strong commitment to the pursuit of truth.[22] "Politicians will respect, rather than manipulate, reality only if the public cares about the truth and punishes politicians when it catches them in deliberate deception."[22]

Popper however did not identify the open society either with democracy or with capitalism or a laissez-faire economy, but rather with a critical frame of mind on the part of the individual, in the face of communal group think of whatever kind.[23]
