George Soros - Master Fanatic or AntiChrist?

I saw Soros tonight on C-Span's Booknotes, interviewed about "The Bubble of American Supremacy." Quite interesting. While the man is soft-spoken and offers many disclaimers about how he "could be wrong," my take is he thinks he's God. He seems to feel guilty about his wealth and assuages that guilt by influencing politics worldwide. All the false humility he tries to project cannot cover his egomaniacal hubris.
Soros espouses Karl Popper's open society idea, but seems to think such a society needs him and his foundations to make it happen. (A Leninist vanguard elite?) He thinks that liberty and pursuit of happiness can happen without the recognition of self-evident truths. Soros seems to hate Bush for forcing American values on other nations rather than gently leading them to "open societies" by Soros'-type methods, and for what he sees as unfair personal attacks in response to his criticism. Hell hath no fury like liberal billionaire scorned!
