Thor Halvorssen a thorn in the side of North Korea

Thor is a powerful name, and Thor Halvorssen is a powerful man—and he uses his power for good.

Thor runs a human rights organization, based in New York, which helps human rights campaigners from third world countries promote their causes. He doesn’t see much use in protesting against the United States government when other countries routinely engage in practices that are so much worse.11)

Indeed, Thor should know. He was raised in Caracas, Venezuela. His father was a high-ranking finance official in the government, but it wasn’t long before Thor saw his father thrown in jail after he tried to make high-level government corruption public. His mother, too, suffered for her beliefs. She was once shot and wounded as she protested the increasingly authoritarian government of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

Today, Thor organizes a yearly Human Rights event, perhaps the biggest in the world. It’s called the Human Rights Forum and takes place once a year in Oslo, Norway, a country to which Thor traces his roots. His grandfather was a Norwegian diplomat who stood up to the Nazis and lived in exile in South America. Thor invites dissidents and Human Rights campaigners from all over the world to the Forum. Also in attendance are rich philanthropists who are receptive to helping underfunded causes.

Aside from improving Human Rights all over the world, Halvorssen is also on a quest to stay young. He routinely injects himself with Human Growth Hormone and takes a handful of pills a day, all to give him bursts of energy.

It appears to be working, as he’s got bursts of energy in spades. He runs a Hollywood production company that helps produce Human Rights conscious films. He’s also a perpetual thorn in the side of North Korea.

The country, known as the Hermit Kingdom, especially draws Halvorssen’s ire. It’s been closed off to the outside world for the better part of 70 years, and now possesses a nuclear arsenal. All this, while its citizenry lives in awful conditions, many even dying of starvation. Halvorssen organizes hackathons against the North Korean regime and smuggles in contraband.

Thor Halvorssen Gave An Interview On Socialism And Discussed Bernie Sanders

Recently, Thor Halvorssen had an interview with Fox News and he discussed Bernie Sanders. Read on to find out what he had to say about the presidential candidate.

In the interview, Halvorssen said socialism was a violation of basic human rights. He said that it was fine for countries to have socialists governments if human rights were not violated. Thor Halvorssen said the problem is if socialism is done under an authoritative government.

He said that socialism is find if there are different branches of government, and if there is a separation of powers. He also pointed to countries such as Denmark and Sweden, who he says often has socialism governments and labour governments. He said that was perfectly fine, but it’s wrong to take control of a government under the mask of socialism. Harlvorssen said it was wrong for someone to claim they will help the people of a country, but end up looting the country.

In the interview, Halvorssen mentioned that he did donate to Bernie Sanders’ campaign, and that’s because he wasn’t a fan of Hillary Clinton. He added that you do not end poverty by redistributing wealth, and he said you end poverty by creating wealth and that he believed in free markets.
