“Animal Farm” by George Orwell is a book that displays how communism is a deficient option for a government, even on a tiny basis such as an animal farm. The way George Orwell displays how communism is a deficient option is writing about a farm, Manor Farm, ran by an abusive and neglectful man named Jones. The animals decide to take over with dreams of communism and equality for all animals. Once they overcome the farm (Renamed Animal Farm) the pigs decide to run the farm on communism, the fear of becoming like humans, and fear of humans and human ways. Soon do they find out that communism does not create a utopia and problems evolve concerning equality of animals. Soon they end up being like humans, their fears come true.

Like when the animals found out that the pigs were sleeping in beds, eating from a kitchen, and using the farmhouse for recreation, they did not take a stand to make things right or make equality among the animals. Instead they stood back and let the pigs get what they wanted, they did this not because the pigs were smarter, but they knew chaos would be among them if they did rebel and the pigs would win, they're trapped in an unfair dystopia. “Boxer passed it off as usual with "Napoleon is always right!", but Clover, who thought she remembered a definite ruling against beds, went to the end of the barn and tried to puzzle out the Seven Commandments which were inscribed there.

Yet again, the animals did not rebel. “Milk and apples (this has been proved by Science, comrades) contain substances absolutely necessary to the well-being of a pig. We pigs are brainworkers. The whole management and organisation of this farm depend on us.” This quote is on the pigs (Squealer) explaining why they need the milk to themselves. He lies about disliking the milk and he took it from them and did not share it . He used resources . Another example of using resources is when Napoleon kept some puppies he took from a litter in the attic of the farm. Nobody was allowed in the attic except him, this is because he was training the puppies to worship him and only him. He did not use the dogs to protect the farm, he used the dogs to protect him.
