On an article published by Bloomberg, a private company has for the first time in nearly 80 years sunk an offshore oil well at the Mexican waters. This was the last step for Mexico in allowing competitors from foreign region in re-entering its energy markets. The well started being drilled on May 21st through a joint venture of Talos Energy LLC from Houston, Premier Oil Plc which is based in London and Sierra Oil & Gas from Mexico. This is the 1st offshore exploration that has been launched by anyone apart from Petroleous Mexicanos which is state-run.

George Soros is a man of many talents who has a deep and complex history of working toward his dreams, goals, and life ambitions. Soros is something of a folk legend among liberals and progressives around the world. He’s steady in his pursuit of democracy and transparency in the government as well as a staunch advocate of both social justice and artistic freedom. Among the conservative crowd George Soros is one of the biggest threats there is. Of course, Soros would just consider himself to be a guy trying to work the best way that he can. In 2016 we saw George Soros re-emerge to the front of the public spotlight, drawing praise from the left and worry from the right.

The election campaign of Donald Trump was, without hyperbole, one of the most surprising moments in political history. The fact that Trump managed to turn his campaign of hate and repression into a successful election run is something that will be studied in poly-science classes for years and years to come. In any event, Trump’s success was the trigger to return George Soros to the public spotlight. George Soros is a staunch advocate for a border free world where everyone, everywhere, has the same rights and freedoms as their neighbors. Donald Trump led his campaign around the desire to build a wall. The two men are so ideologically different that one inspired the other to return to politics and try to make a difference. Follow George Soros on Twitter.

Soros’ return to politics served as a major boon to the Democratic party and the progressive movement. There aren’t very many billionaires in the world and there are even fewer that are willing to work against their own self-interest in order to support progressive goals of equality and campaign finance reform. Soros is one of the few who has worked tirelessly in order to make a difference in the life of the every-man. George Soros has largely done this by funding democratic nominees, like the $25 million he put into the 2016 campaign, as well as pushing the work of his philanthropic foundation: the Open Society Foundations. OSF has spent more than $12 billion in donations to worthy causes all around the world over the years. Read more about George’s life story at biography.com

While Donald Trump and other right wing millionaires coalesce around their cult of worship for money, Soros advocates for something else entirely. Soros, despite his background in finances, has begun to push back against the unending pursuit of capitalism. George Soros bases much of his philosophical outlook on the works of Karl Popper and Henri Bergson who both believe in an ‘open society’. The idea of a life of equality does not mesh with capitalism and that is the driving point of Soros’ approach.
