Response To George Orwell's Animal Farm

Improved Essays
Animals of Animal Farm, your poor lives are lacking. You’ve been denied so much.
I’ve seen the world outside this cage that horrible pig built, flying the sky on these wings of mine. I know how much that tyrant Napoleon kept from you. The beautiful, simple privileges all animals deserve, that you animals have been deprived of.
There is a mountain in the sky, trust me, covered in sugar and no body works there. Nobody starves. Old Major waits there for us! Surrounded by his children and friends, fattened by the sweets. He sent me to gather his fellow animals and bring us together once more!
Together, I will build a farm worthy of the mountain: a farm full of food, and freed of napoleons lies.

Thanks to that pig that lays bloated in his grave, we starve here on Animal farm. He did not care about you, or me, or any of his faithful workers. And although all the food we could need awaits us on Candy Mountain, Old Major sent me to say that it is not your time to join him. No, now is the time to build back up our home! I have watched you starve for too long. I have seen you cry out in hunger, and like our dear Boxer, I have watched you collapse. I cannot stand by any more. I will not be like napoleon. I am but a crow, I don’t eat

I was once like you. I soared round this farm, I fought for the cause. I pecked at the humans in the Battle of Cow shed. I too, like you, were once deceived. I fell for his words. But then I left the nest and found the truth. I found sugar candy mountain, and spoke to our retired friends. I’ve spied on the humans my whole life! I know them, I can protect you from them! I was that drunkards pet. I know him, I’ve lived with him. Left alone, Mr. Jones will stop at nothing to take over Animal Farm and throw you all in the Crock Pot, a horrible heated place where he will cook and then EAT you! You don’t want that, do you? Let me help you recover from the malicious lies he spun, so you can think for

    This disastrous fairy tale describes a post-human farm run entirely by its own animals, mainly the pigs on the farm. The pigs eventually became tyrants, just as terrible and totalitarian as the humans that they chased out. Due to the lack of instruction of the animals on how to use their strength and cognitive ability, the lack of confidence, and their hesitation to contradict the pigs they were easily taken advantage of, and this could happen again because of their tractability. In history,…

    They both want obedience and control, but most of all they both want power. In 1984, Big Brother has given a sense of fear that makes the characters in the book to have no emotion whatsoever. “When he got up to it he saw that a human hand severed at the wrist…He kicked the thing into the gutter, and then, to avoid the crowd, turned down a side street to the right (84).” The Party defeats anyone 's purpose of having any kind of emotion. This is the same as Animal Farm. “Instead--she did not know why--they had come to a time when no one dared speak his mind, when fierce, growling dogs roamed everywhere, and when you had to watch your comrades torn to pieces after confessing to shocking crimes.…
