Nathaniel Ru has definitely proven that he can take on fast food competition with a healthy food alternative like Sweetgreen. Very few people may have thought that this would be a possibility before the first Sweetgreen opened up near Georgetown University. Now it appears that everyone wants to get in on the investing portion of Sweetgreen.

Venture capitalists have put up more than a hundred million dollars to invest in this idea that Nathaniel Ru created. It is a clear-cut sign that he is someone that had a vision that others could believe in.

Everyone that starts out in the restaurant industry is up against a lot of competition right away. There are so many well known staples in the fast-food industry that have made the barriers-to-entry extremely difficult.

Nathaniel Ru may not have considered this much because he was simply looking for a healthy food alternative for himself.

He did not have any desire to engage in world domination when it came to leading in the fast food industry. It appears, however, that Nathaniel Ru may be able to push his way to the top with the fresh fruit and vegetables that are part of the Sweetgreen menu. It is definitely a sign that people are tired of eating the same things over and over.

They are tired of the fast food that is not as fulfilling as the fruits and vegetables that are served by Nathaniel Ru. Nathaniel wants to do something different with Sweetgreen, and he has shown that people are receptive to the idea that he created.

There is a lot of buzz about new Sweetgreen locations because there is a lot of interest in changing the way people look at fast food in the south. Right now Sweetgreen has still not penetrated southern markets just yet.

There is still a great amount of interest in getting these franchise restaurants into the south because that is where the biggest obesity rates are occurring. Nathaniel Ru definitely has a lot of room to grow, and the South may be one of the best areas for him to expand to.

He has already shown people in the east and the west that they can have healthy alternatives. Now people can look forward to more of these restaurants popping up in southern states.

That is why people are looking forward to what Nathaniel Ru is going to do next.

The president of the Human Rights Foundation, Thor Halvorssen, was interviewed for a program on Fox News. Halvorssen was asked to talk about his views on socialism and whether he agrees with the policies proposed by U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders. Senator Sanders has been traveling across the country during his presidential campaign to spread his theories that socialism can help to fix some of the economic issues that have been tearing the country apart for quite a few years now. Halvorssen said that even though he supports Senator Sanders for the next presidential election over the alternative candidate, Hilary Clinton, he does not agree with all of the socialist policies proposed by Senator Sanders.

 

In sum, Thor Halvorssen is mostly concerned with how socialism can affect the status of human rights. He says that with a socialist regime, it is far more likely that private property rights will not be respected. This recent Buzzfeed article about Thor Halvorssen shows that it becomes easier in a socialist society for the government to start accumulating more power and using it for political purposes.

Intelligent discourse is rare in politics today. Donald Trump bloviates, using half-truths, lies and bigotry to push an empty agenda. His ad hominem style makes for great ratings and allows him to lead the news every night. Fox News uses this confrontational style to drive up ratings in their own reporting.

Sometimes the network uses interviews with unsuspecting interviewees as a weapon against ideas they do not agree with, like the Democratic socialist agenda of presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. Recently the network brought the founder of the Human Rights Foundation and film producer, Thor Halvorssen, on the network for an interview. The man is world famous for being a human rights activist and it appears the network tried to use his good name to slam socialism and Bernie Sanders all at once. But cooler heads prevailed and Thor Halvorssen turned the interview around against Fox News.

According to Forbes, Thor Halvorssen used intelligent discourse to expose Fox News bias during the interview. The network figured that Thor Halvorssen hates socialism because his own father was a political prisoner of the socialist dictator of Venezuela. But Thor Halvorssen’s response to the question, “Why is socialism a violation of basic human rights?” shocked the network. He calmly explained that socialism is not bad and that unchecked unilateral power in the hands of one dictator is bad, no matter the form of government.

The hostess then asks the world famous human rights advocate to define socialism. He then asks her what kind of definition she wants; the academic definition, the theoretical definition or the definition of in a socialist ideal. The hostess couldn’t handle it, calling all that information mere “details”. That’s when an exhausted Thor Halvorssen tells Fox News that he supports Bernie Sanders and has donated to the insurgent candidate’s campaign.

You can hear the shock in the hostess voice. It’s as if the entire network squeals through her.
