How huge we all are …

No, those are not my words. Those words, said a lot about people´s attitudes at the early stages of the Russian revolution, before the Bolsheviks seized power and the Accursed Days began.
It just strikes me, at how similar it is to what is heppening here in the Western world of 2019.

People today, empowered by technologies, have become giants in their own eyes, everyone has a voice, has freedom to express his her self and to be heard.

And the words of Dr Zhivago, Boris Pasternak´s immortal hero come back to tell us that we are repeating the errors of the past.
«And how huge everyone is and how disconcerted by his own size. Have you noticed? As if overwhelmed by himself, by the revelation of his greatness.»
