Memoirs of a Financial Warrior – About Philanthropy

I am often asked how active I in philanthropy and what charities if any I am most active or interested in.

To be perfectly frank, I am actually creating a Joint Venture partnership between the “Financial Policy Council” and “Brave Enough to Fail”; two nonprofit organizations that will assist tons of extraordinary students with special needs because of immigration status, poverty, unstable family situations and other issues, assimilate to the US system including but not limited to adjusting to college life, preparing for the future, attending such elite universities such as Harvard, Stanford, Wharton, Yale, M.I.T., etc… and basically encouraging them to make a real difference in America and the world.

Charity work for me is really all about “Passion”. This is something I have lots of.   I have successfully done it already for the Financial Policy Council and have since acquired lots of experience operating in the 501 c 3 non-profit world.

Clearly, we have a rising generation that has been raised on a carefully choreographed and highly biased diet of Capitalism = Greed = Evil.  This must be countered for the sake of our country, our future generations, and for the value system we hold dear.  Another major problem is that our educational system serves as an enormous demotivator to most natural-born entrepreneurs/innovators.  Rather than respect, cultivate and celebrate highly motivated your minds that wander from the rigid generic curriculum, the system prefers to label most of these kids and having ADD and want them medicated into submission.  Very tragic.

We need to educate our youth as the left-leaning socialist agenda of the Democratic party is destroying America. Socialism has never succeeded anywhere in the world. Socialism depends not upon the will of the people but on the dictatorship of the Party to remain in power. A recent Harris poll suggested that “half of those under the age of 40 would “prefer to live in a socialist country”. Three-quarters of Democrats believe the country would be “better off” if it were more socialist.

Given the left-leaning education of so many of our younger generation, telling the truth about socialism has become vital for the survival of the American way of life. If we do not, Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez, Clinton, Pelosi and their fellow holidaymakers will fill the void with their misleading bombast. This is the truth about socialism: “It is a bogus – faith established in pseudointellectual – scholarship and implemented through doctrinal tyranny.”

This is today my Number One focus regarding philanthropic activities. Become dangerous or wither with the wind.
