How Thor Halvorssen Fights Tyranny

Thor Halvorrsen is a troublemaker. If you were a tyrant, that is probably what you would think of him. As an advocate for human rights, Halvorssen is keenly aware of the impact the certain governmental systems (such as socialism) can have on a nation. He has personally witnessed the impact of socialism on his family. As this article pointed out, his father exposed a socialist tyrant. Then he was arrested as a political prisoner and tortured. This gives Halvorssen a unique perspective on a difficult issue. He knows the impact that socialism can have. When the government has so much power, it is very easy for it to be abused by a mad dictator. Even if we have a benevolent socialist ruler, what will happen when the next one comes? Halvorssen recognizes that a socialist government is very easily infiltrated and corrupted.

Love For People

Why has Thor Halvorssen embarked on these human rights campaigns? Why has he endured beatings? He could have easily found a job in the United States as a reporter or some sort of political analyst. He is a very intelligent individual who has a lot to contribute. So, why has he chosen such a dangerous career? He says that it is because he loves people. He does not want to see the government take advantage of anybody. He also believes that this is what will happen in the United States if the government has too much power.

Who Is Thor Halvorssen?

Ironically, while Thor Halvorssen opposes socialism, he supported the democratic socialist Bernie Sanders as a presidential candidate. This was because of the overwhelming demerits of the other candidates. He pointed out that both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump seemed far too amenable to dictators and dangerous terrorist groups. As a result, he supported Bernie Sanders.

Of course, supporting Sanders does not make Halvorssen anymore sympathetic with socialism. Socialism is a lesser evil, for Halvorssen. After all, he suggests it will lead to a loss of jobs, food shortages, and many more consequences that could deeply impact the future of the United States.

George Soros’s Foundation Thwarts James O’Keefe’s Plan To Gain Access To Its Operations

In the recent past, James O’Keefe’s attempt to gain access to a group funded by Soros failed to materialize because he did not hang up the phone. As James was calling the Open Society Foundation, he introduced himself as Victor Kesh. However, unaware that he had not hang up, he engaged an unidentified person concerning his plan.

In a voicemail to Dana Geraghty, James is heard asserting that Kesh is Hungarian-American. He goes further to posit that he would like to be involved in aiding the company fight for European values. James requests Dana to direct him to a contact person and leaves a number. As soon as Kesh completes the call, James is heard asking someone to keep mum until he hangs up the phone.

In a 10-minute conversation about his plan against the group, Kesh is heard saying that it would be prudent to use Dana’s LinkedIn page to get to George Soros. After a while, he realizes that this move would not serve anything but revealing his own LinkedIn account to Dana. Later, Dana asserted that she was scared when the group started talking about her as the point of entry. Dana goes on to contend that based on their discussions, James and his group was not well versed in matters of technology.

On receipt of the voicemail, the foundation’s president, Chris Stone, scoffed at their effort to dupe Dana. While comparing the group with the Watergate burglars, Stone asserted that the group looked bad. Stone went on to argue that since the group could not use the internet browser, it was ill prepared to carry out an undercover operation. Stone decried O’Keefe and his group for their dirty tricks.

Democrat, Socialism, or Not?

Bernie Sanders recently stated that if elected president of the USA, he would make it a socialist country. A socialist state is one where the workers manage and control industries through a democratic government. Many people in the USA are opposed to the idea of socialism. They include liberals who believe that socialist governments are responsible for violation of human rights.

In an interview with Trish Regan on Fox News, she talked to Thor Halvorssen about democratic socialism. Thor works with the human rights foundation and therefore his interview on Fox had a lot of sense. He stated clearly that he had nothing against socialism as long as it was practiced by a government that is not authoritarian. He mentioned countries such as Norway, Denmark, and Sweden as examples of countries that have successfully practiced socialism since they do not violate human rights.

Thor’s main objections against socialism were that if it was practiced by an authoritarian government, there was a great chance for the leadership going against its previously set objectives about helping citizens by extorting them. This comes into force because in socialist governments, who by the way people say are similar to Marxists and communists, the government is responsible for setting the prices for common household goods and this, in turn, leads to shortages of these commodities which are otherwise very necessary.

Thor Halvorssen gave a good example of a country where socialism had backfired on the people and brought about great suffering from the shortage of food and other necessities. Venezuela is a South American nation under the leadership of Hugo Chavez. The government there sets prices for everything and therefore causing a shortage that in the end only cause a crisis. Thor himself has had his experiences with socialism on Venezuela. His father was a political prisoner in the country while is the first cousin is still a prisoner there. Thor’s mother has also been shot by this government at one time. All these unrest in the country has been brought by the government making decisions about important issues such as food prices by themselves. The ordinary citizen is left feeling cheated, and it is true at most times.

Thor stated clearly that although he is not for the idea of socialism for the USA, he had his support for Democratic Party candidate Bernie Sanders. He mentioned the current frontrunner’s ties to countries that oppress people as the reason for his choice to support Sanders. That is his choice and opinion anyway.

According to Huffington Post, Halvorssen says that democratic socialism can only work if there is the rule of law. He feels that for the government to eradicate poverty, it should be a creation of more wealth and no redistribution of the same. That is the reason that Thor is such a believer in free markets. If the government decides to control everything, there is bound to be a problem.
