Sep 06, Lama rated it it was ok. Soros, quite frankly, worries me. Erik Moore rated it really liked it Oct 06, His ideas around the ‘feel good’ and ‘open’ societies are good, and and can be books in themselves.
He comes across as a agw dictator intent on changing the world in his own image. He’s a leftist version of Donald Trump in many ways on how he views the power his money has given him.
The idea of an open society is one that accepts that we will never reach a “perfect” solution to anything and so we must always work together to improve what we are doing, thf that each improvement we make will require additional improvements.
We an say how USA arogant to others. Oct 09, Louis Lapides rated it it was ok.

The Age of Fallibility: Consequences of the War on Terror by George Soros
Soros, reality is something that independent from geoege mind. He merely points out the ways in which Americans can improve in our domestic and foreign policies. The abstract concepts at the start of the book are interesting and, I think, are valid. The book got over my head a bit towards the end. In this book we get a very clear geeorge honest look at the current state of the US through the eyes of a man I have a huge amount of respect for.
George Soros should not write in English. The book is overflowing with such clarity and intelligence that I can’t imagine anyone honestly interested in what’s going wrong with America would soors be fascinated with it. In this powerful essay Soros spells out his views and how they differ from the president’s.

Austin Marshburn rated it it was ok Sep 09, If you like the political writings of Chomsky or Vidal, Berman’s “Twilight of the American Culture”, Stiglitz’s “Globalization and its Discontents”, or are in any way troubled by the disconnect between what Bush says and what he accomplishes And After reflecting on his support of a losing Democrat for president, George Soros steps back to revisit his views on why George Fallibilkty policies around the world fall short in the arenas most important to Soros: However it seems sound enough, particularly his linkage with and development of the sors of Karl Popper.
First, I have developed a conceptual framework that has given me a certain understanding of history, and, in particular, what I call far-from-equilibrium situations; second, I have a doros of firm ethical and political beliefs; and third, I have made a lot of fallibiligy. Soros connects the dot’s to this one grand problem, and the offers a grand solution that humanity must undertake before it’s to late.
A second reading might be necessary to grasp a deeper understanding. If you liked Orwell’s you will almost assuredly like this book.
