Thor Halvorssen has managed to go very far in his life because he has found something that he is very passionate about. His passion is human rights. Thor has found himself to be so passionate about human rights that he has started his own company called Human Rights Foundation. This is where he is able to not only look at the different issues of human rights violations, but also look for ways to bring these violations to the light. However, Thor is not going to stop there with his campaign for a more global world of equality. He is going a lot further than other human rights activists.
Where other human rights activists do little more than talk about the issues, Thor Halvorssen gets even more involved in the issue. Huffinton Post describes how he himself has taken physical beatings for the cause. He has chalked it up to being all in a days work. His philosophy is that if he is not willing to roll up his sleeves and get dirty, then he is not going to be very effective as a human rights activist. Therefore, he has decided that he is willing to lay down his life if need be for the cause.
One of the reasons that he is so passionate about human rights violations is that he has been one of those that have been victimized. In fact, his family is full of victimization as a result of the fight for more honest and humane government. Therefore, he has taken to heart all that has happened to him and his family and has decided that he is going to give people the assistance that he himself has wanted. Thor is gaining a lot of trust and respect as a human rights activist. Unlike other prominent activists, he is one that is being taken seriously.
