Fighting Socialism with Thor Halvorssen

Governing a country is more complicated than many people realize. Since politicians have to simplify concepts to explain them to the people, the people will erroneously conclude that everything could be resolved if they implemented the wisdom from their favorite zinger. For example, it would be nice if the poor had more money. It would be nice if college students did not have to pay for their tuition. Socialists will conclude that the government could pay for it. However, the philanthropist and Venezuelan native Thor Halvorrsen has spent a large portion of his career fighting the injustices of socialism. There are several points that he would raise to remind the people that it is not as simple as they might think.

Socialism Hurts Poor People

Socialism might give poor people money to help them to maintain their status. But it does not allow them to traverse their status. It does not help them to get through a difficult time. It locks them into that difficult time, making them dependent upon the government funding. That is why there are generations upon generations of families who live in bad neighborhoods. The socialist government has prevented these families from moving up.

It Removes The Motivation For The Working Man

The form of socialism known as Marxism is often summarized with the line, “To each according to his need, from each according to his ability.” But if the physician is getting paid according to her needs, then it seems difficult to keep her motivated to work according to her ability. There is a natural sense that the person who works deserves to be paid according to what she has performed. Beyond that, the person who is living in poverty and dependent upon government funding will not be motivated to go out and find work. She has everything that she needs. Further, if she were to get a job, she would lose government funding. Socialism is therefore detrimental to the workforce.

Having received a degree in Political Science from the University of Pennsylvania, Thor Halvorrsen is an expert in these matters. His fight against socialism is based on the premise that it is simply not a viable economic policy.

Yeonmi Park’s Daring Escape From North Korea

The citizens of North Korea live under a totalitarian, power crazed regime. Escaping from the country is an extremely difficult ordeal for several reasons. For one, the government aggressively tries to prevent citizens from fleeing the country. Those who flee risk being killed in the process. Furthermore, escape into South Korea is essentially impossible. The border between the two countries is separated by a demilitarized zone.

To the north, the country is bordered by China. China is not tolerant of North Koreans being in the country. However, Yenomi Park and her family bravely dared to escape the oppressive regime. Yeonmi Park’s tale on The Guardian is an inspiring one for North Korean citizens. It also is very eye opening to outsiders to see the horrors of the North Korean dictatorship. 

Her escape was made in a very bold and daring way. Her father was released from a prison camp where he had been held for “illegal trading”. When her father was released, Yenomi and her family made the choice to flee. They hired smugglers that got them into China. Once they got there, they had to be careful to avoid detection by the Chinese government.

While in China, Park’s father died of colon cancer. This was very traumatic to Yenomi and her mother. After her father’s death, Yenomi and her mother were able to make it to the Mongolian border. However, this plan did not work out very well. They were allowed into the country, but they were jailed in Mongolia’s capital.

They were in this jail through the late winter and early spring of 2009, but eventually they were let go. When they were released, they were able to get to South Korea. When they got there, it was possible for them to become citizens. At last, Park and her mother were able to be free from government oppression. 

While in South Korea, Yenomi has done a great deal of speaking out about the horrors of living under the North Korean dictatorship. Yenomi has been able to show some North Koreans about the world outside of the totalitarian regime. She also has shown the world what truly goes on in North Korea.

This has shocked many people living in different countries throughout the world. She told her story on BBC and during the One Young World summit in Dublin. Her moving speech really changed the way many people see the North Korean regime, and the speech has been seen by millions online all over the world. She also has spoken on other occasions, such as on TED and Dateline. 

Yenomi Park and other North Korean defectors have great potential to bring about social change. As time goes on, more people will hear their stories. It will spread the word of what goes on in North Korea throughout the world.

Yenomi’s story and other stories of life in North Korea contrasted to life in most other parts of the world will show those living under Kim Jong-Un’s regime the evil of his ways. Yenomi feels that her and other defectors may one day be able to bring about changes to how North Korea is governed. It would be wonderful if that ends up being true.
