This is what the guys are Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers forgot. They forgot that they are a part of a continuum of history, and it’s not about the fucking buck that you make today at whoever’s fucking expense. If there’s not a sense of continuity, a sense of some sort of communal obligation and responsibility, a sense of a future involved in what you’re doing, and a sense of being beholden to the past, you end up being one shallow, greedy motherfucker, just trying to get all you can get.
- Bruce Springsteen. From this month’s Rolling Stone interview with Jon Stewart.
If there’s any question what “Wrecking Ball” is about, well…there you have it.
