Birthing the Culture War
by: Bethany Stotts, September 11, 2007
Over the last half century, America has become embroiled in a culture war between so-called Open Society liberals and Reaganite conservatives. Authors David Horowitz and Richard Poe describe the Open Society in their book, The Shadow Party, as founded upon Karl Poppers philosophy that A truly open person never assumes that his beliefs are superior to someone elses and never forgets his own fallibility. According to Horowitz and Poe, George Soros then adopted this philosophy, founding the Open Society Institute. OSI describes its dedication to support the rule of law, education, public health, and independent media and to build alliances across borders and continents on issues such as combating corruption and rights abuses. In contrast, Horowitz and Poe describe Soros as an ultrarich mastermind reminiscent of the Bond media mogul nemesis, Eliot Carver. Horowitz and Poe claim that Soros has funded and manufactured the ascension of sixties radicals into positions of power within the Democratic Party in order to promote radical left-wing policies such as marijuana legalization and amnesty for illegal aliens.

Soros' "Open Society" crap is really just a stalking horse for socialism.
