What is George Soros' Game?

THERE are still a number of things in this world that I don't get. So I have a trigger in my mind looking for explanations.

For instance, I have been wondering about Karl Marx's famous phrase from Das Kapital.

A mass of free proletarians was hurled on the labour market by the breaking-up of the bands of feudal retainers, who, as Sir James Steuart well says, “everywhere uselessly filled house and castle.”
What was going on, I wondered? Then I got the answer. The absolute monarchs were disarming the nobles, ending their private armies. So the nobles "hurled" the peasants off their lands. If the peasants couldn't be used as soldiers, who needed them?

One of my questions is: What does George Soros want? Why is he funneling money at the Democratic Party in the US? In the American Thinker today editor Thomas Lifson calls Soros "a brilliant mastermind, the closest thing to a real-life Bond villain in human history." Soros is trying to influence the election of district attorneys.
