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.
