Thor Halvorssen Speaks From Experience
Thor Halvorssen is a man does speak from his own personal experience. His father had been a political prisoner and his mother was shot during a peaceful protest. He does have a cousin who is currently in prison in Venezuela. He is a person who speaks from real knowledge. He has seen first-hand exactly how a dictatorship and socialism can rob and violate basic human rights.
A Violation of Human Rights and Socialism
Thor Halvorssen gave an interview to Fox News that was about socialism and Bernie Sanders. This interview had aired on February 26, 2016. Thor had make a contribution to Bernie Sanders previously. It was the largest amount that is allowed. Socialism is a violation of basic human rights, in the view of Thor Halvorson. This does not necessarily include every aspect of socialism. There are several definitions of the word socialism. The big objection, according to Mr. Halvorssen, is when socialism is done under an authoritarian government or if they actually use socialism as a mask. Looting a country when a government takes full control may be considered to be a violation. The government may create massive shortages for people. Dictatorship is a big problem. There are some countries that are practicing socialism within the government that do not violate human rights. Free markets will work and the creation of more wealth for everyone is a positive outcome for socialism. Taking full control of a government does not help the people. Bernie Sanders is a socialist senator. Mr. Halvorssen would prefer to have a socialist democrat in government. Separation of power must be incorporated. Restrictions of human rights does not work for the people. Bernie Sanders is pro socialism for America. If rule of law is followed, socialism can work. Socialism in government is a recipe that may be negative or it may be very positive for the people. Redistribution of wealth will not prove to be a positive solution with socialism. These are the views of Thor Halvorssen. Constitutional rights must be included in the socialist government if it will prove to work for all people. Socialist policies must be included. Dictatorship and socialism are not a good recipe for anyone.
