    I read a book called, “Animal Farm” written by George Orwell. The book is about animals on a farm who are overworked, and not treated as they should be. Then, a rebellion made up of animals with pigs as their leaders, rebel against Mr.Jones (owner of the farm) by driving him off the farm. The animals try to make the perfect life for themselves, but that doesn’t go as planned. Animal farm then, starts to fail. The farm fails because of the pigs not being fair to the other animals, and the animals being too dumb to realize it. It starts to fail because pigs start to make power grabs that screws the “perfect life” vision the animals have. Also, the other animals made mistakes, by not speaking up when they thought something was wrong. These reasons and many more are why animal farm fails. One reason animalism fails is because of power grabs by animals. There are examples of this throughout the book. One power grab that failed animalism, was when the pigs take the milk and the apples for themselves. “So it was agreed without further argument that the milk and windfall apples (and also the main crop of apples when they ripened) should be reserved for the pigs alone.” (P.g 36) This is an unfair power grab because the pigs were being selfish, but because they are the leader, it immediately grants them permission to do so. This shows why animalism fails because the pigs don’t do anything for the wellbeing of animal farm, they do things for themselves. Another example of a power grab…

    If you pay attention closely throughout the parts we have read so far in “Animal Farm,” many leaders are trying to manipulate others to follow them and trust their decisions over others. Two big example that have stood out more to me than others, is how Napoleon manipulated Squealer. (Pages 56-58) When Snowball was chased out of the farm, Squealer constantly backs up Napoleon's word. He was always telling other animals about his good ideas, but more importantly he was manipulated when he told…

    How does the tortoise know he will win in The Tortoise and the Rabbit? How does the tortoise trick the antelope in quitting the race before he even crossed the finish line in The Tortoise and the Antelope? These two fables show very valuable lessons for success in life. Though both are compelling in different ways, they hold more similarities than you may realize. The tortoise is the sharpest animal in these fables while obviously the rabbit and antelope are gullible and smug animals that need…

    Martin Luther King said, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” He was the rightful leader of this cause, and that made this movement much more successful than it would have been without him.

    In many stories, the enemy is defeated in the final battle. But in the books The Moon is Down and Animal Farm, the opposing force is conquered early in the story. The catch is, destroying the main force does not always end the fighting. In The Moon is Down, the army defeats the town but do not control the people. In Animal Farm, the animals chase away the humans only for the pigs to take their place. Just because they win, it does not mean there are not going to be future battles. “‘Conquest…
