As a native to the State of Israel, Adam Milstein took on cultural experiences throughout his childhood that ingrained him with the spirit to prevail against any negative force that sought to prohibit the natural freedoms of the Jewish people. When he was 19 years old, Milstein vowed to defend his nation by joining the Israeli Defense Forces whereby he fought in the Yom Kippur War and helped lead Israel to victory. But instinctively, Adam Milstein was aware that future generations of the Jewish population would have to encounter battles that would be much more mental than physical. Therefore, he decided to enroll in school to get an education to not only prevent him from being a victim of circumstance, but to also unlock opportunities for him to be of assistance in uplifting the Jewish community.
Upon earning a degree in Industrial and Business Management in 1978 when he was in Israel and getting his MBA from the University of Southern California in 1983, Adam Milstein worked within the real-estate industry as a managing partner for Hager Pacific Properties. Currently, Milstein’s duties as managing partner to the privately-owned investment firm entail overseeing all financial and disposition matters involving the company. Moreover, with his business endeavors having reached a level of fulfillment, Adam Milstein sought to pick up where he had left off earlier in life to become a committed humanitarian. In 2000, the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation was founded on his behalf to aid members of theIsraeli-American community with tools (education, occupational training, etc.) that would allow them to become successful leaders/role models to other young people within society. Nonetheless, as chairman in the Israel-American Council (one of the largest Jewish organizations in the nation), Adam Milstein sets goals that contribute to the spread of positivity, unity, and cultural appreciation within the Israeli-American population. Cultural ties between the United States and the State of Israel are upheld by the IAC as their primary objective whereby Milstein further contributes to the organization by fostering membership growth within the council across the nation.
Many people who decide to be a filmmaker do so for many different reasons. Some people want to be famous. Others want to tell good stories. Then there are some who want to use film in order to influence the world. Thor Halvorssen is one of those people who want to make films that influence the world and take it in a direction that is more harmonious. One thing that he understands about people and entertainment is that what they see in the media does have a lot of influence on their behavior. Therefore, he is working on ways to bring that influence towards something positive.
Thor Halvorssen is very passionate about human rights. As a matter of fact, he has set up the Human Rights Foundation with the purpose of fighting for the rights of others. He is aware of many different countries that are run a lot differently than the more free countries. There are a lot of underdeveloped countries where people are living in horrific conditions. The dictatorship in those countries often take away the humanity of those that are suffering. What is even sadder is that a lot of people are born into this. Therefore, they have no idea that there is a better life.
Given his connections and involvement in the film industry, he has celebrities that are involved in the fight for human rights. Thor himself travels to different countries that are in violation of human rights. He works as an activist with the intention of getting rid of authoritarian rule. He has also shown that he is willing to sacrifice his life in order to make a difference. He understands that any forms of punishment he takes is nothing compared to what the people in these countries go through on a daily basis.
In a recent interview on Fox News, Thor Halvorssen discussed his issues with socialism and dictatorships. Explain the difference between Democratic Socialism and Socialism under a Dictatorship style government. He feels that socialism can easily mask unscrupulous government practices by those that try to take advantage and oppressed the people. In the interview, Thor Halvorssen goes on to distinguish between the difference of Democratic Socialism and oppressive Dictatorship Socialism. Not all countries that practice socialism oppress their people but because it is so easy to mask ulterior motives using a Socialist platform. In his example he uses Venezuela. Venezuela’s socialist platform sets prices for their government which in turn creates shortages of supplies. When supplies are short, this creates a humanitarian crisis. Thor Halvorssen uses Venezuela as an example because his father was held as a political prisoner and his mother was shot and killed by Hugo chávez’s men. Even now his cousin is being held as a political prisoner. Thor’s outline said he does not oppose all socialist governments but that he opposes socialist dictatorship. Even though he does not support Democratic socialism Donated the maximum amount of funds to the Bernie Sanders campaign. He believes that Bernie Sanders is a better qualified presidential candidate because the other candidates are taking funds from Dictatorships. So ultimately opposes dictatorships and that’s where his issue was with socialism. Thor Halvorssen Sears a president that would readily take funds from countries that abuse and oppress their fellow countrymen. Thor Halvorssen is a human rights activists and does extensive humanitarian work.
