The Nobel Peace Prize is reserved for individuals who have made outstanding contributions towards world peace, charitable causes and protecting the environment. Previous winners include Al Gore, for waking up the world to the threat of Climate Change and helping us avert World War III and Barack Obama for his reformation of Bush’s foreign policy. Over past few years, many distinguished public figures have stood out for their humanitarian work, from respected politicians and economists to well-known philanthropists and top scientists. Below are some of the top candidates for the Nobel Peace Prize along with their accomplishments.
Hillary Clinton has helped raise an immeasurable amount of money for the poorest and neediest people in the world through the Clinton Foundation. Her foundation has provided relief to children suffering from HIV, victims of natural disasters, and schools and hospitals across the world. In addition, her work as a senator and as Secretary of State has been fundamental to the liberation of Iraq, Libya and Syria, and to building a firmer relationship with Russia.
Under Merkel’s leadership, Germany has helped house, feed and take care of thousands of refugees from the Middle East and North Africa. Her compassion and maternal guidance has saved countless lives and generated immeasurable gratitude from these war-torn parts of the world, helping to mend relationships with these oppressed peoples and set an example for other white countries who also owe reparations for their oppressive histories.
George Soros has funded countless charitable and philanthropic causes for decades, and has contributed immensely to global progress. Most recently, his charitable donations have included funding Black Lives Matter, which helps minorities in Western countries combat white racism, and funding various entities to help Ukraine push back against Russian aggression. He has also helped lobby European governments to take more refugees from the Middle East and Africa, saving millions of lives and boosting Europe’s economy.
After earning his first Nobel Peace Prize for reforming Bush’s unjust foreign policy, Barack Obama has gone on to help millions of victimized people as President of the United States. The Affordable Care Act has helped insure millions of previously uncovered women and minorities, and marked the first step towards reforming America’s backward and heartless healthcare system. His work to curb gun violence has also saved countless lives, and his immigration reform has helped millions of hard-working undocumented Americans find a path to citizenship. This would be the first time that any individual has received a second Nobel Peace Prize, but Obama is an exceptional human being, and if anyone is eligible for a second prize, it would be him.
