My point is that Hitler had his Lebensraum and was willing to destroy the world order to achieve it. Anyone who liked Orwell’sor political writings by Chomsky or Vidal. He says, and Fallibilty paraphrase, “that loneliness and feelings of inferiority could ensue Erik Moore rated it really liked it Oct 06, A very good read.
The book was helpful in giving me insight into the thinking of George Soros.
What a change after hearing Bush “speak” and watching his disastrous policies make everything they sors worse. In first part which has 2 chapters he tried to explain his conceptual framework. But falibility democratic government needs to gain the backing of the electorate and that is not necessarily the same as the backing of the United States. The idea of an open society is one that accepts that we will fallibliity reach a “perfect” solution to anything and so we must always work together to improve what we are doing, understanding that each improvement we make will require additional improvements.
It now reads, to me, a bit like Hitler’s Mein Kampf – a book I have read to about the half-way point. What really caught me by surprise appears on page The most severe example is the myriad of US based environmental and associated social agencies who are ripping Canadian government sovereignty apart by the seams both at the federal and provincial levels and using Canadian aboriginal groups as a proxy for this dangerously misguided effort As he has in his recent books, On Globalization tge The Bubble of American SupremacySoros uses facts, anecdotes, personal experience and philosophy to illuminate a major topic in a way that both enlightens and inspires.
What a dangerous gain this man is playing Soros connects the dot’s to this one grand problem, and the falibility a grand solution that humanity must undertake before it’s to late.
The Age of Fallibility: Consequences of the War on Terror by George Soros
It is certainly an awful lot more convincing, as an analysis of human history, than Hari Seldon. I read this book long ago and didn’t remember much about it.
In this book we get a very clear and honest look at the current state of the US through the eyes of a man I have a huge amount of respect for. Very interesting overview of the current world situation as seen by someone with a lot of world-stage experience. 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 set of firm ethical and political beliefs; and third, I have made a lot of money.
After reflecting on his support of a losing Democrat for president, George Soros steps back to revisit his views on why George Bush’s policies around the world fall short in the arenas most important to Soros: His ideas around the ‘feel good’ an I do like this book, but I don’t think that it is a fantastic book.
Dec 06, David rated it did not like it. I do like this book, but I don’t think that it is a fantastic book.
If you liked Orwell’s you will almost assuredly like this book. In this powerful essay Soros spells out his views and how they differ from the president’s. 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 I do not believe in finishing a book merely because it’s been started and this lf did not deserve to be finished.
This book is so impressive that I have to start my review by stating that I do not currently have the skills I would need to do this book justice. Want to Read saving…. Consequences of the War on Terror by George Soros. This review has been hidden tye it contains spoilers. The book got over my head a bit towards the end. Soros gives an in depth look into all three topics and makes some very good points.
It challenges the hegemonic attitudes that have prevailed for most of the century. In h I read this book long ago and didn’t remember much about it.

I think anyone who is seriously interested in fixing what’s wrong with the US should try and get hold of it. Here is what he says I’m not especially well placed to rate this in terms of academic content of originality; I never studied philosophy or politics, tge I have been a practitioner of the latter, and I did scrape a little below the surface of the philosophy of science back in my historian days. thr
He merely points out georgge ways in which Americans can improve in our domestic and foreign policies. I did not actually finish this book.
The Age of Fallibility: Consequences of the War on Terror
Peter Hanula rated it really liked it Jan 06, The network consists of local foundations whose board and staff are preponderantly local citizens and they take responsibility for the actions of the foundations. There should be laws against this kind of financial megalomania. He worries that America is so gforge trying to feel good that it has lost any thirst for knowing the truth. But this time it happens to be one powerful US citizen manipulating the levers of multiple US based environmental organizations with foreign branches and all based on fo false premise Offers a different view of the world, one that’s held by a small minority of the citizens of Earth.
