Dr. Zhivago

There are books that should be required reading to become a public servant. If you happen to be a public servant and you don’t have the time for such a thick book as Dr. Zhivago, there is a film.  Let me warn you, it is long too.

According to Wikipedia, Doctor Zhivago is a 1965 British-Italian epic romantic drama film directed by David Lean.  It is set in Russia between the years prior to World War 1 and the Russian Civil War of 1917-1922 and is based on the 1957 Boris Pasternak novel of Doctor Zhivago.

Perhaps, those who rush to dismiss our present government should remind themselves of World History. Don’t rush to get rid of what you have if you can not replace it with something better.  What is replaced must be good for us all as a nation. I understand those who are as poor as church mice, so am I. Even those who have once had and no longer have are been frustrated. However, I do not wish to get myself into something that appears to be good but in the long run, I see it is not. Only what I have arrived at is a quick fix.  At first glance,  everything appears to be moving in the right direction.  In the end, we discover everything has gone far south ( figuratively and metaphorically).

Doctor Zhivago is basically a love story.  However, it does hint to things that were going on wrong in politics. Hopefully, our present-day public servants will glean what is said as well as what is not said.
