Political freedom has been realized by the existence of different types of human activism around the world. Many people have been made aware of their rights to life and privileges found in their respective constitutions. Freedom comes with a price and many people who fought for freedom and liberation ended up being killed. This was the beginning of human activism that took a positive turn towards ensuring every person around the world is treated equally. This has seen rise to many activists across the world that have fought for liberation among countries.
Thor Halvorssen is a leading and renowned human activist that has been participating in the liberation of oppressed people in the society.

When one attempts to define an individual, one often recites history. Scenes and settings are employed as descriptive mechanisms, anecdotes are given to offer personal glimpses. A miniature biography is formed. However, this is no true definition. Determining the dimensions which separate great men from the common ineptitudes of humanity is a tall task. In the case of Thor Halvorssen, this dilemma of definition is exceedingly difficult.
For our human rights hero is not merely a man, rather, he is freedom’s chiseled embodiment. Thor Halvorssen is a maverick, a movement which is ceaseless, furious, and fast. In Buddhist fashion, the freedom fighter found his passion after a crash-course with life’s harsh realities. A turn of events in Venezuela left Halvorssen’s father imprisoned and tortured, this was Thor’s awakening moment. As he watched in helpless horror, Halvorssen empathized with the powerless. As he realized the abyss created by corruption, he felt the pain of millions before him. Thor employed his paradoxically energetic calm, and eventually, he could secure his father’s release.
Since his suddenly formative college-years,Thor Halvorssen has morphed into a symbol. Halvorssen has been around the globe, often under the duress of oppressive authorities. While many human-rights icons like Michelle Obama dictate from the safety of home, Halvorssen jumps directly into the fold. Fearless, he even smuggled a flash drive out of Vietnam hidden in his rectum. He is a true man of action, an agent of change. Witnessing the individualist speak is out of this world, driven by about 35 supplements, he flexes his mental muscle, politely pointing out logical loop-holes in a Fox News segment.Thor thoroughly tackles true tyranny. Besides his direct activism, Thor is president of the Human Rights Foundation. Employing his talents, Halvorssen hammers away at shameful practices of oppression.

One of which involved Halvorssen and Park Sang-hak sending balloons full of Desperate Housewives and The Interview. Although this event was publicized due to the DPRK’s massive hacking response, the human rights stalwart stands strong.
