Weekly Standard, a conservative news magazine, interviewed the enigmatic, Thor Halvorssen, a human right advocate, who founded the Human Rights Foundation. Halvorssen is a principled activist who is opposed to despotism and intolerance in whatever society it happens in and whenever and wherever it occurs. He is a man who requires very little sleep, and his entire energies are skewed to combat dictatorships and despotism at the simple urging of his Wickr account.
Many people on the right see him as an advocate and fellow conservative because of his opposition to the socialist regime of Hugo Chavez in his birth country of Venezuela or his opposition to the legend of Che Guevera in Cuba. Recently interviewed on Fox News as someone who would speak out against the socialist Bernie Sanders. The news presenter was in for a surprise as Halvorssen admitted to supporting Sanders in his bid for winning the Democratic nomination for president. He went on to say that he had given Sander’s campaign the largest donation allowable by law. Halvorssen is a man who is principled and complex and far beyond the simple categories of conservative or liberal. When directly asked that question, he responded that he was a liberal in the sense that John Stuart Mill was a liberal. J.S. Mill was a liberal during the 19th century, and one of his famous quotes would inflame all the readers of the Weekly Standard, when he said, “Conservatives are not necessarily stupid, but most stupid people are conservatives.”
Thor Halvorssen remains an enigmatic, intelligent, dedicated proponent of international freedom and the elimination of despotic regimes, as well as being opposed to any unelected government system in the world. Halvorssen has a lot of work to do.
