Thor Halvorssen Works With A Purpose

If there is anything that could help a person make a difference in the lives of others, it is having a purpose. Thor Halvorssen definitely has a purpose and works with it. His purpose is to play a part in the fight for a more humane world where every human is treated as equals. Unfortunately, there are many cultures where humans are treated as objects. There are a ton of underdeveloped countries that are ruled by tyrannical dictators. They do everything they can in order to make sure that they have control over even the thoughts of the humans they rule over.

To make things even worse, a lot of those countries are impoverished. Dictatorship governments like North Korea are faced with a famine. The Kim Dynasty has definitely run the country to the ground. Thor is one of the many activists that are working on finding a way to put an end to the rule of the Kim Dynasty. Thor Halvorssen is also working on fighting against the corruption of government so that the people who live under these rules can have the freedom to decide for themselves what they want for their lives.

Among the other issues that Halvorssen is fighting is slavery. There are countries that are still involved in the slave trade and human trafficking. Thor and his Human Rights Foundation are looking for ways to put a stop to all of human rights violations throughout the globe. Thor is doing it with a lot of passion and energy. He is also doing it out of his love for people. He is also trying to change the image of human rights activism from the person who loves to talk about the issues to someone who is willing to take action and even put his neck on the line for the rights of others.

Thor Halvorssen Seeks To Extend The Reach Of The Human Rights Community

The work of the human rights community is not an area where headlines are normally made on a regular basis, but for many the rise of Thor Halvorssen and the Human Rights Foundation have taken the role of activists to an entirely new level of success. The Human Rights Foundation established by Halvorssen in 2005 has become a key part of the work of the human rights activist community and reflects the political position of Thor Halvorssen; a liberal at heart, Halvorssen is not a believer in the need for those who follow a specific form of political ideology to be exempt from the pressure placed on governments with a more right wing approach to life.

Thor Halvorssen comes from one of the most famous political families in Europe and South America as his parents, grandparents, and other family members have occupied some of the most important political positions in Norway and Venezuela. The fact he has studied political science at the University of Pennsylvania seems to have had little effect on his own attitude towards politics with the film producer failing to be interested in politics as a career; instead, Halvorssen simply looks to work with people who have a passion for human rights activism instead of working solely with those who share his liberal views.

Politics plays a role in the film production work of Thor as the majority of his films have used human rights and the loss of democracy as their basis for building tension. Currently moving into the realm of fiction films by working with director Bryan Singer, Halvorssen made his name as a producer with his work on a number of documentaries largely based on the human rights issues faced by millions of people living in the eastern bloc during the cold war of the 20th century. A further area of interest that combines both the human rights work and political outlook of Thor Halvorssen is his establishment of the Moving Picture Institute that provides financial backing for films being produced about the subject of human rights.
