After flying to the other side of the Earth to attend a freedom conference, Venezuelan political activist, Thor Halvorssen spoke passionately to attendees. He spoke to them about his mission to bring democratic freedoms to all peoples of the world.
He started detailing the excesses and denial of human rights in his native South American country of Venezuela. He was speaking to people in Seoul, South Korea. Thor says countries like his Venezuela and nearby North Korea’s governments claim to be socialist democracies. The reality is that they are nothing of the sort.
When asked about which countries have the right kind of socialist democracy, Halvorssen points to Norway, Sweden, and the Netherlands. Their citizens are generally happy and well adjusted, enjoying many basic human rights that he says are fundamental.
The wrong kind of socialist democratic countries have less than a single percent of their populations that express having true freedom, even becoming deathly afraid.

His mother was shot and nearly killed by them. Before that, his father was abducted, falsely imprisoned with no charges brought, and tortured many times. It took everything Thor and his family, in partnership with many statesmen and freedom activists to obtain his freedom. Thor soldiers on, working hard for change in his own country, and in many other areas around the world with despotic regimes.
Halvorssen says the current administration in Venezuela is so corrupted and full of obvious hypocrisy. He says these are the rotten elements that will lead to the regime’s total failure. He has an air of authority. That comes naturally to Thor Halvorssen. His ancestors were high-profile leaders, generals, and other statesmen.
The original liberator of Venezuela, Simón Bolívar, is one of his most distinguished ancestors. History shows that Bolívar also liberated most of the other South American countries. He was just one of many powerful and inspiring people from whom Thor descends.
