Animal Farm - Orwell
Orwell (who's real name is Eric Blair) wrote animal farm in 1943 to
describe how he felt about dictators and leaders during revolutions. A
good example of this is Russian revolution (the events of which are
paralleled in Animal Farm), Orwell believe that once leaders had
achieved their goal, they should resign and let the community take
over and a committee should make the decisions. However in the Russian
revolution Josef Stalin (the leader in this case) did not resign and

Major' told them to as a last request before he passed away. He had
the idea of a perfect society in which animals would rule and everyone
would have equal opportunities. As Mr Jones never treated them
correctly or had any respect fop the animals. Old Major had a dream
that he and the others should rebel and stand up for what they

animals should break free and eat their fill when they felt like I,
and not when it suited Mr Jones. The idea's of the rebellion were
simple, no hidden agenda's, just to break free and live in an
environment without humans and with out Mr Jones. To do this and keep
order seven commandments were wrote to abide by:
1: Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy.
2: Whatever goes upon for legs, or has wings is a friend.
3: No animal shall wear clothes.
4: No animal shall sleep in a bed.
5: No animal shall drink alcohol.
6: No animal shall kill any other animal.
7: All animals are equal.
When the animals rebelled they felt like they could cope with
anything, go against any odds and climb any mountain no matter how
high, Morale was very high.
The windmill is something that marks that the rebellion is going
wrong, as it starts to crumble. The animals don't do anything about it
because they are too scared and don't realize what power they have
when put together.
