Woody Harrelson hates the government far more than the stereotype of the average Tea Partier would suggest. The Now You See Me star told Details magazine that he’d be open to living without government rather than the corrupted one we have today.
He’s an anarchist, to be blunt, and he’s not on board with President Obama’s Hope and Change coalition.
DETAILS: So you dislike Democrats as much as you dislike the GOP?
Woody Harrelson: It’s all synchronized swimming to me. They all kneel and kiss the ring. Who’s going to take on the oil industry or the medical industry? People compare Obama to Lyndon Johnson, but I think a better comparison is between Obama and Nixon. Because Nixon came into office saying he was going to pull out of Vietnam, and then he escalated the war. A lot of us were led to believe that Obama was the peace president, but there are still, I think, 70,000 troops in Afghanistan. Corporations like Grumman are so powerful that–I don’t know, is this the kind of shit we want to talk about? It’s making me depressed….
No. I don’t believe in politics. I’m an anarchist, I guess you could say. I think people could be just fine looking after themselves.
Later, Harrelson found himself expanding on his anti-government feelings.
The government may change faces from time to time, but it’s not like we fight wars for democracy–we fight wars for capitalism and for oil. I keep coming back to the same goddamn subject. I guess because it’s what really bugs me the most.
