Socialism Dominates Discussion With Thor Halvorssen

The growing tide of supporters being drawn to the campaign of Independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has surprised many media and political experts who are looking to find the reasons why the self described Democratic Socialist has become such a big part of the 2016 election season. Fox Business host Trish Regan has become concerned many of the supporters of Sanders do not fully understand the term socialism or how this political ideology can affect the people of the world.

 

Trish Regan turned to human rights activist Thor Halvorssen in her bid to find out more about what socialism can mean to any nation accepting this controversial philosophy. The well known founder of the Human Rights Foundation set out to give his own interpretation of socialism before bringing the interview back to his own experiences with the ideology and the campaign of Bernie Sanders.

 

Halvorssen, a successful Hollywood film producer of documentaries and fictional movies explained just how difficult life can be for those who are trapped under socialist rule as the dominant ideology in any state. Thor Halvorssen revealed he agrees with Bernie Sanders in his view that many European countries have achieved social success through the incorporation of socialist policies into a wider range of political discourse.
However, Halvorssen also revealed he has concerns about the use of socialist policies based upon his own life experiences in his home nation of Venezuela; Halvorssen revealed the nation had existed in a successful way for many decades by merging socialist policies with left leaning political choices. The success of Hugo Chavez, who made socialism the dominant philosophy in Venezuela coincided with a greater level of concern for the human rights of the people of the nation. Thor Halvorssen believes the loss of human rights of the people of his own South American country stand as a warning for those looking to accept socialism in the future. Despite the concerns Halvorssen has about socialism he revealed his belief in Bernie Sanders as the best choice for U.S. President based on his human rights and political record.
