Thor Halvorrsen’s Final Thoughts on The Election and Bernie Sanders

Many people are glad that the election season is over. It marks the end of a season of bitterness and opposition. Old friends who were blocked on social media can safely be unblocked. However, many are still wishing that things had turned out differently. Many suggest that had Bernie Sanders prevailed in the primary season, the election results would have been quite different. Among supporters of Bernie Sanders was the President of the Human Rights Foundation, Thor Halvorrsen. But what makes Halvorrsen so interesting is not necessarily that he supported Sanders. Rather, it is that in addition to that, he is adamantly opposed to democratic socialism as a form of government. Yet during this interview on Fox, Thor testified that he made a major donation to the campaign of Bernie Sanders.

Consider Halvorrsen’s Personal History

Halvorrsen has spent a good deal of his career fighting the injustices wrought by socialistic regimes. With the Human Rights Foundation, he will often pressure governments to release political prisoners who were arrested without a fair trial. But Halvorrsen’s skirmishes with socialism did not begin when he took his seat with the Human Rights Foundation. They began as a child. Halvorrsen saw brutalities beyond what most westerners can imagine. This includes seeing both of his parents murdered. His father was tortured as a political prisoner and eventually executed for the alleged crime of bank fraud. He has seen the abuse by the government in a socialistic regime.

Yet Socialism Was Still The Lesser Evil

Since most Americans are not educated in the history and potential policies of a socialistic government, most people do not understand it as well as Halvorrsen. Yet despite all of the fear and the potential for corruption, Halvorrsen still thought that socialism was the lesser evil when he considered his alternatives. Granted that even with a socialist President, the United States would still be a capitalist nation. But the fact that he would be willing to step in that direction speaks volumes.

Halvorrsen is a man of integrity and conscience. He also recognizes nuances where others will paint with a broad brush. He is a man who will make intelligent, moral, and calculated sacrifices for the good of the people.
