The concern of George Soros, the billionaire financier, for improving the American way of death came from a personal experience. His beloved father, who had saved the family from the Nazis, died in 1968, and Soros recalls that he did not even hold his hand. "I refused to face the fact that he was dying. I think it was a tragic mistake on my part. I think our whole society is somehow operating in a state of denial and distortion. We have been told all about sex, but very little about dying."

'I did not even hold his hand. I think it was a tragic mistake on my part' After his father's death, Soros read Elisabeth Kubler-Ross's books on dying and as a result he approached his mother's death very differently. She died quietly at home, surrounded by her family. "She was a believer, and she actually saw the gates of heaven. It was a very touching thing. I was holding her hand, and she described it to me. She got very worried. She didn't want to take me with her. Very touching. I said, 'Don't worry, my feet are on the ground.' That was when she lost consciousness."

After her death, in 1994, Soros gathered at his home a group of professionals concerned with issues of death. The group decided to put together an organisation called the Project on Death in America. Soros wrote it a cheque for $15 million.

The Project now has 38 faculty scholars in 31 medical schools in the US and Canada. It is hoped that they will become role models and help persuade other doctors to change their approach to pain, depression and other death-related issues.

It’s because it’s a repeat broadcast. Get a DVR and DVR the live broadcast at 5pm ET.

I saw part of the Beck Report. That guy is trying to undermine the USA. Why can’t the FBI arrest him?

Someone else besides Beck needs to pick up on this.

Why is the media so afraid to touch this?

They are part of the Project. Most of the Media also considers themselves as aloof ‘citizens of the world’.

I can’t either! Just as well it was recorded! Obama’s performance at the Press Conference was poor - just trying to be kind.

How is this Nazi collaborator allowed to be an American citizen? Lying on immigration forms is a felony and punishable by deportation and stripping of citizenship.

Or is this another case of “rules apply to others, not me.”?

I have watched all of Becks broadcasts this week I don’t understand why people are having problems, unless it is the replay.

This is true. Obama’s boss wanted the death panels:

George Soros is touched, that's for sure. Touched in the head. I don't think the guy who has no remorse for playing the judas sheep in WW2 even knows what grief is, and he for darn sure doesn't believe in heaven, its gates, or any other place he'll never be able to buy his way into. It's understandable his mom was worried.
