Soros calls China's Xi Jinping 'the greatest threat that open societies face today’
China is threatening all of its neighbors: Gordon Chang
‘The Great U.S.-China Tech War’ author Gordon Chang says Chinese president Xi Jinping is adopting Maoist ideas on military advances amid U.S.-China tensions.
Billionaire George Soros on Monday warned that Chinese President Xi Jinping is "the greatest threat that open societies face today," and said the rise of big tech companies have "sharpened the conflict" between China and the United States.
Soros, a Hungarian-American mega-donor known for his backing of liberal causes and politicians, made remarks at the opening of a Hoover Institution panel on Monday evening, beginning by dubbing 2022 as a "critical year in the history of the world."
"In a few days, China – the world’s most powerful authoritarian state – will begin hosting the Winter Olympics, and, like Germany in 1936, it will attempt to use the spectacle to score propaganda victory for its system of strict controls," Soros said. "We are at, or close to, important decisions that will determine the direction in which the world is going."

Soros pointed to elections across Europe, and Russian President Vladimir Putin as he considers whether to invade Ukraine, calling them "developments" that "will help determine the fate of Europe."
