Actors play pretend for a living. They dress up, put on make up and recite lines others have written for them. They even have directors who tell them how to say their lines and where to stand in order to say those lines.
But regardless, as much as those who work in the lights and glamour of Hollywood dislike capitalism, they don’t seem to mind reaping the benefits of the economic system.
Avengers star Mark Ruffalo wants a complete overhaul of our economic system, believing it to be failing and killing us today.
The millionaire Ruffalo has a history of supporting far left candidates and causes so this doesn’t come as a surprise. However, if Ruffalo truly believed that “capitalism today is killing us,” shouldn’t he put his money where is mouth is? A quick Google search shows the Hulk actor is worth approximately $30 million. He truly feels that socialism or communism is the answer, that we need “an economic revolution” well then he can start the revolution.
Ruffalo has the ability to spread his wealth around, to give some of his millions to those who aren’t bringing in multimillion dollar paychecks. Because just like Gandhi said: you must be the change you want to see in the world.
But will the Hulk ever do that? Well, just like a Hulk getting a standalone film, don’t count on it.
