Does the Belief in a God Temper One’s Actions? by Martin Armstrong for Armstrong Economics
Many questions have come in about our computer forecasting that this grand effort to take over the world will fail. What you must understand is that when people do not believe in any God, they tend to think that they are also above the law, and that is justified for it is a bigger purpose.
Soros has publicly stated that he does not believe in God, and thus it is up to him to manipulate the world economy to fulfill his grand visions. He has also stated that he had no remorse for helping the Nazis against the Jews when he was a Jew pretending to be a Christian.
