Quoting the Stones, lyrics and not.

I've read many over the years, from many different walks of life, in many different countries.
Here is one I just saw, an interview of Noam Chomsky with David Barsamian.
I only include an excerpt because the interview in its entirety is quite political.
" But the urgent problem of overcoming the existential crises—global warming, nuclear war, pandemics—has to be done within the general framework of existing institutions. We can improve them. But you won’t be able to overcome them in the relevant time frame. That’s life. You can’t get everything you want immediately. You can do the best you can, and there’s a lot that we can do.
It sounds like the Rolling Stone song. “You can’t always get what you want, But if you try sometimes you find, You get what you need.” You’ve outlined some of those opportunities to break the grip of capitalism in your forthcoming book, Consequences of Capitalism, written with Marv Waterstone, who is your colleague at the University of Arizona."
