Capitalism made life good for socialist dopes like Ruffalo

Empower Wisconsin | Dec. 4,  2019

Millionaire movie star Mark Ruffalo insists capitalism is “killing us.”

Capitalism sure has been very good to the Kenosha, Wis.-born Ruffalo, whose estimated net worth is pegged at about $30 million.

No matter.

The Academy Award-nominated actor recently declared on Twitter, “It’s time for an economic revolution. Capitalism today is falling apart, killing us, and robbing from our children’s future.”

Pretty dark stuff from a guy famous for playing a sperm donor and the Incredible Hulk.

Let’s take a closer look at Ruffalo’s dire prediction.

“For the first time since agriculture-based civilization began 10,000 years ago, the majority of humankind is no longer poor or vulnerable to falling into poverty,” the Brookings Institution wrote in its 2018 report, A global tipping point: Half the world is now middle class or wealthier.

That’s capitalism at work. That’s not “robbing from our children’s future.” That’s the future’s best hope.

Robbery, poverty, destitution, hopelessness…these are the destinations of socialism and the far-left policies that redistributionists like Ruffalo fancy. That’s the road to Venezuela.

Once the wealthiest democracy in South America, Venezuela is the victim of socialism and the tyrants it breeds. Once an oil giant, the country is mired in nationwide blackouts, soaring inflation, food shortages and misery. Some 3 million Venezuelans have fled.

Is that the kind of “revolution” Ruffalo wants?

It’s difficult to say which is worse: the entitled movie star’s inane take on capitalism or the fact that he has more than 6 million Twitter followers.
