Left-wing movie star, Mark Ruffalo is calling for an “economic revolution” in the United States. He has openly took to Twitter to endorse Bernie Sander’s socialist dream.
Despite the fact that Ruffalo made his net worth of a whopping $30 million from a capitalist nation, he says that free-market capitalism is ‘killing us”.
He continued on Twitter to note that this kind of economic system will only rob our future generations of peace and prosperity, sharing a Time Magazine article carefully titled, “How America’s Elites Lost Their Grip.”
“It’s time for an economic revolution,” he wrote. “Capitalism today is failing us, killing us, and robbing from our children’s future.”
It’s time for an economic revolution. Capitalism today is failing us, killing us, and robbing from our children’s future. https://t.co/OnNm6CYrWK

Democratic Socialism per @BernieSanders is basically the 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. #DemDebate

More from Breitbart:
The article, written by Time Editor-at-Large and NBC political analyst Anand Giridharadas, examines the rise of hardline anti-capitalist candidates and ideas into the mainstream, as well as the rise of left-wing movements in countries such as Chile and Argentina.
Giridharadas’ piece also looks at how certain events over the course of 2019, including the backlash against Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’s plans to set up a headquarters in New York, the celebrity-studded college bribery scandal, and Facebook’s meager $5 billion fine from the Federal Trade Commission, have all contributed to many feeling that capitalism is rigged in favor of the few.
As a seasoned left-wing activist and supporter of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, Ruffalo uses much of his political capital to rail against the supposed evils of capitalism.
