"Billionaire George Soros is predicting protests by Occupy Wall Street will turn violent, while warning the U.S. financial system may collapse.

In an interview with Newsweek writer John Arlidge, Soros reportedly said riots on the streets of American cities are inevitable.

“‘Yes, yes, yes,’ he says, almost gleefully,” when asked about the prospect of Occupy turning violent, writes Arlidge.

Soros claimed the riots will “be an excuse for cracking down and using strong-arm tactics to maintain law and order, which, carried to an extreme, could bring about a repressive political system, a society where individual liberty is much more constrained, which would be a break with the tradition of the United States.”

Many people have been fooled by Soros. My whole adult life, I bought into his whole 'open society' bit. Little did I know about his tactics. His real passion for an open society is far different than what he portrays in his books. What has become glaringly obvious as of late is the total lack of freedom we will inherit if we ever allow this man to bring his ideas to fruition. This man is pure evil, and he's no investing genius either. Its easy to invest when you have massive amounts of inside info from the worlds ruling oligarchs. Don't be surprised if you don't garner much empathy from OWS, for liking Soros.

i've made money following his investments, or rather understanding his style and anticipating it. i am not familiar with his other activities. but open society sounds like a swingers book to me. yeah, nobody here likes the rich, but i bet you saw him on inside job, and he provided a few good ideas for system reform.

Didn't see him on inside job, but I'm sure he put on a good show. This guy knows how to talk. I have had 3 businesses myself, and I have no animosity for the 1%, but cannot stand the 0.1%. Not because they have money, but because they have become an unhinged elite that truly feel they have the divine right to make life and death decisions about who lives and dies in this world, and of those who manage to survive a war or a financial depression, they will also be told how and where they will live.

If anyone is still in doubt about this, search "Committee of 300" by Dr. John Coleman.

to the extent the 1% gets better access to forming public policy (often through the tax code via subsidies and favorable tax treatment on their income), they should be despised. end those corrupt practices and they're no problem. however, there is a great number of studies re: the negative societal and economic effects of wealth polarization--so in and of itself extreme concentration of wealth may, in fact, be very damaging, albeit subtly.

Soros is managing of money-kartell. Cosmopolitan, motherlandless. From Hungary, but he was not Hungarian. Hungary does not love him, and not to like him. He Parasite, as his ancestors: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HhFRGDyX48c

Soros is evil incarnate. When the rest of the world soon wakes up, and they will, there will be nowhere Soros can hide from the masses. The evil he and his cronies have perpetrated on humanity has ensured that he will be torn limb from limb. Great link. Thanks.
