Thor Halvorssen Discusses The Pitfalls Of Democratic Socialism

Democratic Presidential Candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders’s political agenda is the subject of much speculation. Running on the Democratic Socialist platform that promises free college education, free healthcare and overhauling the election system, Sanders is making promises that his detractors say he may not be able to keep.

 

On a recent episode of Fox Business News’ Intelligence Report with Trisha Reagan, Human Rights Foundation front man Thor Halvorssen explained the pitfalls of socialism and why it would never work in the United States. As Halvorossen explains it, certain countries such as Sweden and Denmark have governments that can function under socialism because human rights violations do not exist. However, under authoritarian governments, socialism will quickly collapse because the government will be looted and citizens will not receive help.

 

Halvorssen went on to say that many people don’t know the difference between a socialist country and a socialist government. Halvorssen says his main objection to socialism is what happened in Venezuela. The price-setting by the government caused massive shortages, which led to a humanitarian crisis.

 

Halvorssen went on to say that despite Sander’s position, he gave money to his campaign. When asked why by Trish Reagan, Halvorssen responded that Hillary’s campaign is supported by a number of countries that have many human rights violations. It is his opinion that the better option would be Sanders. He also stated that Republican front-runner Donald Trump has many of the same issues.
Halvorssen goes on to reveal his own personal history with Venezuela, which shaped his viewpoint. He stresses that Democratic socialism is not a bad idea as long as the installed government is working in the best interest of the people and not using it as a ruse to take advantage of the system. He also says that ending poverty can only be done by creating wealth not re-distributing it. Follow Thor on Twitter @thorhalvorssen to keep up with his news and events.
