Thor Halvorrsen Fighting Injustice at the Governmental Level

Everybody should be held accountable for their crimes. This principle becomes more complicated when certain moral crimes are legalized, because one is left with the question of what she really means by crime. Is it a crime if it is in accordance with the federal law? One should think so. After all, some of the greatest atrocities in human history have been those that were legal, such as the crimes during World War II. Thor Halvorrsen, an expert in Political Science Theory (having received a degree from the University of Pennsylvania) recognizes that socialistic governments actually commit crimes against their own citizens. He offers a few bits of insight into this matter that people overlook far too often.

Don’t Trust The Rich, Trust The Government

Those of us who are not rich tend to look at the wealthy with envy. We contemplate whether they really deserve it. “Why them? Why not me?” will be asked, almost as though the rich rolled the cosmic dice and won the jackpot. When a governmental entity is promoting socialism, it will reinforce this inclination against the rich by pointing out how corrupt they are. They cannot be trusted and they do not need all of that money. However, the people are encouraged to trust the government. The government will swoop in and save the day by taking the money away from the rich and distributing it amongst the poor. The concern that Halvorrsen has is in putting so much trust into the government. It would not be so unthinkable for a government to abuse its’ power.

When Does It Become An Actual Crime?

If the government is taxing the rich into oblivion,

Halvorrsen has seen this play out many times, both in history and in contemporary society. When the government starts overtaxing and redistributing wealth, abuse of the system is imminent.

Thor Halvorssen Exposes Human Rights Abuses In Unlikely Places

Did you know that there are camps in China that in prison millions of men, women, and children. Conservative estimates put the people in these camps at 8 million. These prisoners are forced to make the world’s electronics and other goods. Essentially, it is a slave labor business.

Back in 1999, Lucent Technologies was using these slave camps in order to make their goods. Nobody really knew about it except for Thor Halvorssen. This massive company was raking in millions off the backs of slaves, and the American public was none the wiser.

Thor Halvorssen the headquarters of Lucent Technologies. He recruited a bunch of human rights activists to perform a sit in at the corporate headquarters. They stayed there until the technologies company agreed to do away with slave labor.

It is crazy to think that a human rights activist group had to force this company to stop using slaves. But that is exactly what is happening all over this planet right now. In fact, you probably have some products in your house produced in slave conditions. That’s why the world needs Thor Halvorssen and his human rights advocacy.

Thor Halvorssen is the founder of the Human Rights Foundation. This human rights advocacy group performs protests such as the one that took place at Lucent Technologies. But the group takes it one step further using social media as its platform. After all, if you want something to change, you must get the attention of a critical mass.

Take Nikki Minaj, for example. The international music superstar was in the news because she was taking a private jet out of the country. Her equally famous boyfriend had to stay behind because he was on probation. What the world didn’t know was that the superstar was flying to Angola to perform a private concert. The private concert was for the unilateral dictator of Angola, a man accused of multiple human rights violations.
