What exactly is a Radical Bank?

Radical –

adjective

1. (Especially of change or action) relating to or affecting the fundamental nature of something; far-reaching or thorough: Origins Late Middle English (in the senses ‘forming the root’ and ‘inherent’): from late Latin, radic- ‘root’.

Bank –

“What is the robbing of a bank compared to the founding of a bank?”* ― Bertolt Brecht

*Sometimes you also see this translated as “Robbing a bank is for amateurs. True professionals found one.” Language-freaks might prefer this version due to the dual meaning of “found”…past tense of “to find”, which suggests you don’t have to make a bank when you could just take one for yourself. Remember: rob a bank, and you might kill someone, found a bank and you could make a killing.
