Renowned Human Rights Activist Criticizes Socialism Yet Supports Sanders

Thor Halvorssen is a well-known human rights activist and a founder of the Human Rights Foundation. In a recent Fox TV interview, he openly criticized Socialism, yet admitted to supporting Bernie Sanders, a Democratic Presidential candidate known for Socialist proposal.

Mr. Halvorssen claimed that he would rather have him in the office than Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton, as he went on, has accepted contributions from Middle Eastern states known for totalitarian regimes, suppression of human rights, and banning of Christmas. So, support for Mr. Sanders was a result of opting out for a lesser evil.

It seems, though, that Bernie will not win the nomination anyway. Now, the choice will be between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

The problem is, as Thor Halvorssen portrayed, when a Socialist leader makes lots of populist promises to the people, but then ends up looting the country. An example that was given is Venezuela where the government froze prices of certain products and services, which then resulted in shortages and a humanitarian crisis.

Thor Halvorssen thinks that democratic Socialism can exist if there’s a rule of law. The problem is when the executive in charge decides to take control of everything.

Mr. Halvorssen’s family comes from Venezuela. His father was a political prisoner there, and his mother was shot. Presently, his first cousin is in prison in this South American country.

As this famous activist says, you don’t end poverty by redistribution of wealth. You need to create more wealth. But, not every Bernie Sanders supporter seems to understand that.
