Soros calls Wall St profits ‘gifts’ from state

(The depression) is in a way a culminating point of my life's work, so to speak ... it is actually a very stimulating period. - George Soros

Will this spark outrage? No. Because the masses are too programmed and dumbed down to notice or care about government criminal activity, even when they rub it in our faces and laugh about it. Everything - everything - is hidden in plain view. It's as if it's a bit of a game to the establishment: just how much open, blatant criminal activity can they conduct with impunity? A great deal, apparently.

    Financial Times -

    The big profits made by some of Wall Street’s leading banks are “hidden gifts” from the state, and taxpayer resentment of such companies is “justified”, George Soros, the fund manager, said in an interview with the Financial Times.

    “Those earnings are not the achievement of risk-takers,” Mr Soros said. “These are gifts, hidden gifts, from the government.”
