revolution is started to stop what is happening and going full circle comes to the same point it started from Just the face of power is changed This book tells how the ruling class makes fool of the working class, uses their energies and resources for their own pleasure What happens behind the closed doors of power How the working class is being brain washed that they are happy and satisfied and free despite of the obvious slavery they have been undergoing My favorite character was Benjamin yes, a donkey , who remains a neutral throughout and says nothing despite understanding everything.A

percipient and brilliant Arguably Essays I read Animal Farm too young to identify the individual animals with actual characters on the stage of communism the old boar Major is Marx, Farmer Jones is the Tsar, the pigs Napoleon and Snowball, Stalin and Trotsky respectively so this essay is giving me a lot to think about So far, nothingso than this quote below Background to the quote A group of Ukrainian and Polish refugees in a displaced persons camp had discovered sympathetic parallels with their own plight in Orwell s parable and had begged him for permission to translate his almost totally unknown book But The emotions of the American military authorities in Europe were not so easily touched They rounded up all the copies of Animal Farm they could find and turned them over to the Red Army to be burned The alliance between the farmers and the pigs so hauntingly described in the final pages of the novel were still in force The book is banned in Cuba, North Korea, Burma, Iran, Kenya and most Arab countries It is banned in the UAE not because of it s content but because it has anthropomorphic talking pigs which are unIslamic is this not Orwellian in itself It is still censored in Vietnam These nations wouldn t want ordinary people reading the book and looking at their own ruling porcine elites and seeing any parallels now would they Who knows what kind of thoughts

This is a book I ve been meaning to read for ages but never got around to last week I not only read it but gave a lesson on the historical context for the grade 8 class, who will be reading this book and The Wave As I found, out of the class of 24, about 20 of them had already read the book, and at least one kid knew it was an allegory of the Russian Revolution Still, my lesson wasn t totally redundant For anyone who isn t familiar with the story, Animal Farm is about the animals on a farm This is a book I ve been meaning to read for ages but never got around to last week I not only read it but gave a lesson on the historical context for the grade 8 class, who will be reading this book and The Wave As I found, out of the class of 24, about 20 of them had already read the book, and at least one kid knew it was an allegory of the Russian Revolution Still, my lesson wasn t totally redundant For anyone who isn t familiar with the story, Animal Farm is about the animals on a farm in England rising up against the incompetent, cruel farmer Mr Jones, who represents the deposed Tsar, Nicholas II and taking over the farm, renaming it Animal Farm USSR and so the glorious vision intended running it for themselves, so their lives would be better.The vision is given to them by a pig, Old Major, who dies not long afterwards Old Major probably represents Vladimir Lenin and Karl Marx, and it s not the socialist ideal put forward that is critiqued by this book but how that vision is corrupted by certain other characters, namely another pig called Napoleon, who represents Joseph Stalin Napoleon chases a pig called Snowball Leon Trotsky off the farm with his personally trained dogs while still just the General Secretary of the Party, Stalin recruited people who would follow him blindly, so that when Lenin died in 1924 he was able to defeat Trotsky for the leadership position and his dogs kept everyone else in line.The pigs then take charge, and with their literacy skills keep changing the rules the animals established in order to suit themselves, using a pig called Squealer to convince the other animals that their memories are faulty After all, as the drafthorse Boxer keeps saying, Comrade Napoleon is always right.Boxer is for me the most heartbreaking character in the novel He represents the peasants, and is the most hardworking animal on the farm He has utter faith in the leadership of Napoleon and works himself to the bone literally His reward is very telling, though I don t want to give it away Most of the characters represent either a person, several people or groups of people, and for the complete list you can check it out on Wikipedia.Orwell, while a socialist, was very cynical about Stalin s communist USSR and for good reason Animal Farm is a very well written critique of how socialist ideals are corrupted by powerful people, how the uneducated masses are taken advantage of, and how the dictator or communist leaders turn into capitalists just look at China It s a wonderful example of how effective the allegorical style format can be, and a well deserved classic The only good pig is a dead pig.Yeah, yeah, everyone claims Orwell wrote this as about the Russian Revolution, Stalin, and the rise of Communism Pshttt Whatever.You know what I think he was really saying Beware the Other White MeatOk, maybe not Look, I know what you re thinking, That pig looks adorable , but the next thing you know, that piggy is all grown up and stealing your cookies And you ll let it steal your cookies because Mr Pig has convinced you that giving up your cookies ever The only good pig is a dead pig.Yeah, yeah, everyone claims Orwell wrote this as about the Russian Revolution, Stalin, and the rise of Communism Pshttt Whatever.You know what I think he was really saying Beware the Other White MeatOk, maybe not Look, I know what you re thinking, That pig looks adorable , but the next thing you know, that piggy is all grown up and stealing your cookies And you ll let it steal your cookies because Mr Pig has convinced you that giving up your cookies every day was a part of the original agreement Besides, what do you know, you re just a stupid sheepPlus, it s just a cookie, where s the harm Not to mention, the last guy who complained about giving up his cookie ended up mauled by that dog Probably just a coincidence, though Right But it s ok because pigs are smart That s what everyone says, right Smarter than you are, at any rate And if the pig says it s ok, then it s ok.I mean look at it It couldn t possibly have anything but your best interests at heart Alright, I m outta pig gifs.So, I thought this was a pretty cool book Sure, it s supposed to be about Russia, but it could just as easily be about the working class in my country Bottom line We need to stop listening to the spin doctors on the boob tube and start thinking for ourselves Question everything, especially the things we think we know are true It might be a good idea to teach our kids that it s ok to not blindly believe everything we tell them, too Besides, if we re right, then our ideals can stand up to the scrutiny of children Otherwise, we risk raising a generation of idiots Oh I found onepig gif
