Thor Halvorssen Fights for a Meaningful Cause

Human rights is a meaningful cause to fight for. Unfortunately, there is a huge fight left in this issue because of all of the oppression happening in various parts of the world. The more developed parts of the world that has a more lenient rule tend to not want to believe that oppression exists. However, the truth is that there are parts of the world where humans are treated as less than objects. Therefore, one has two choices. He could either ignore it, or he can do his part to put an end to human oppression.

Among the people that are fighting for human rights is Thor Halvorssen. He is very passionate about human rights. For one thing, he stands up to the oppressors and tyrants of different countries. One of the reasons that human rights is a major passion for him is that he has experience with the violation of human rights. According to Forbes, Halvorssen comes from a line of people who stood up for the rights of others, often at the expense of their own lives. Thor’s father has been tortured in a prison after revealing government corruption. His mother was shot during a demonstration. Thor has a knowledge of human rights violations that go beyond theoretical.

Thor is also working to put away any stereotypes about people who are fighting for human rights. For one thing, he is trying to keep a positive image to combat the depressive stereotype of someone who is fighting for the cause. He also tries to avoid falling into the trap of hating people. He himself loves people. This is in fact what it takes to be effective in fighting for the rights of humans in countries where people have less freedom. Thor himself took some of the beatings that other activists are afraid to take.

The Rise Of Bernie Sanders Discussed By Thor Halvorssen

The rise of socialism across the U.S. after this political ideology was popularized by Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders during the 2016 election cycle has been questioned by many conservative and liberal leaning news outlets. The Independent Senator for Vermont has caused concern for Fox Business host Trish Regan following his decision to compare his policies to those used by socialist leaning governments in Northern Europe who believes the majority of Sanders supporters do not understand the ideology in its full meaning. To provide a better understanding of socialism for her viewers the host of “The Intelligence Report” turned to human rights activist Thor Halvorssen, who has previously described socialism as a way of stripping people of their basic human rights.

Thor Halvorssen provided a thorough definition of socialism for Fox Business viewers before qualifying his views on human rights and socialism; Halvorssen explained socialism is often used as a mask for those who wish to use the ideology to better their own position within society or form authoritarian regimes around the world. Halvorssen explained his view that socialism and socialist policies can have a positive effect on the people of any nation who can combine the positive aspects of the political outlook with more centerist policy choices.

The rise of Sanders has given Thor Halvorssen cause to pause and determine what he feels will be the best outcome for the people of the U.S. in the upcoming Presidential election. According to Forbes, Halvorssen explained the reasons he feels Bernie Sanders is the best option for the U.S. despite the decision to describe himself as a Democratic Socialist. Fox host Trish Regan was visibly shocked by the revelation that Halvorssen has made the maximum possible donation towards the campaign of Sanders as he refuses to back the candidacy of other candidates he feels have a poor human rights record. In response to his own personal beliefs about the need to preserve basic human rights for people around the world the support of dictators and closed societies by Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton made it impossible for the Oslo Freedom Forum founder to support these candidates for President.
