In the latest installment of the Open Society Foundation, the topic discussed was the prevalence of cell phone cameras and the recording of interactions between police and those in close proximity to a crime. The large number of recordings made of police incidents, especially those concerning interactions with African Americans have been used to make a case for and against the police. The case discussed by the Open Society Foundation was one that occurred in France and the person who had filmed the incident was subjected by the local police to physical and verbal threats far in excess of what happens in the United States of America.

The philanthropic endeavor of George Soros and his Open Society Foundation is a worldwide effort to fight for the public’s right to know and to help in the fight against repressive governments. Soros was subjected to the horrors of war when as a Jewish youngster he saw the effects that both the German Army and later the Communist troops had on the people in his native Hungary. Soros escaped to London and began his studies where he came into contact with the writings of Karl Popper. Popper was a man convinced that closed societies lead to the dreadful conditions that have been experienced by Europeans during the Second World War.
Once George Soros established his fortune by putting his education to use in the financial markets, he began his philanthropy and wrote numerous books and lectured around the world espousing the ideas of Karl Popper. Living in the United States of America, Soros has made himself available to those who wish to see the world evolve into a better planet with the elimination of totalitarian regimes and secret societies that have too large a hand in controlling every country.
