Of Ethics and Activists

If there is one thing that needs to be addressed, it is ethics. A lot of people are acting in unethical ways towards others. Among the common sources of unethical practices are rulers of countries. There are rulers that deal with their own country in a way that limits if not denies human rights. Fortunately, there are people that are looking for ways to address the tyranny in oppressive countries. They are human rights activists. These days, more people are revealing how oppressive their society is. Then there are human rights activists like Thor Halvorssen that are trying to fight for a more humane world.

Thor Halvorssen is considered a trouble maker for Tyrants, and the new face of human rights activism. For one thing, he is changing the stereotype of human rights activists. Often times, they are seen as the gloomy types that love humanity and yet hate people. Thor Halvorssen is presenting a different picture of a happier activist that has a deep love for people. He is also working intensely on helping out the oppressed. While he does have an intensity about him, he is also willing to work with people in order to come to an agreement.

While many other human rights activists seem to talk about the issues in front of the camera and not much else, Thor Halvorssen is known to actually get dirty and even take some blows for the oppressed. There were times when he was used as a punching bag. He takes that as all part of the job. When he started the Human Rights Foundation, Thor has adopted the motto to not just talk about human rights, but to get dirty and take action. After all, it is called Human Rights Activism for a reason. Thor Halvorssen believes in being active.
