The Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo took to Twitter to call for an economic revolution.

Ruffalo wrote on Twitter:

“It’s time for an economic revolution. Capitalism today is failing us, killing us, and robbing from our children’s future.”

Back in September, following a Democrat primary debate Ruffalo made it crystal clear he supports Bernie Sanders’ democratic socialism.

He describes it as a “political system that works for all of us not just one percent. Healthcare for workers, education for workers, sick leave for workers, and a fair tax system.”

Ruffalo, who has a net worth of $30 million according to Wealthy Gorilla, is no stranger to attacking capitalism and calling for revolution.

Back in 2016 leading up to the election, he wrote on Twitter, “Democracy is not meant to be in service of capitalism, capitalism is meant to be in service of our democracy. #OurRevolution.”

In 2014, he promoted an article by Thomas Piketty titled, “Capitalism in Its Current Form Undermines Democracy.”

In 2012, he also called for an “evolutionary reconstruction” of capitalism.

In 2011 and 2012, Ruffalo was clearer on what he meant. In 2011, he clarified that he was not against capitalism, but “it’s corpratocracy plutocracy that I have a problem with.”

He would add, “It is not about anti Capitalism it is about Corporate and Political corruption.”

What do you make of Ruffalo’s recent comments?
