Plot summary

Old Major, the old boar on the Manor Farm, summons the animals on the farm together for a meeting, during which he refers to humans as parasites and teaches the animals a revolutionary song called 'Beasts of England'. When Major dies, two young pigs, Snowball and Napoleon, assume command and consider it a duty to prepare for the Rebellion. The animals revolt and drive the drunken and irresponsible Mr Jones from the farm, renaming it "Animal Farm". They adopt Seven Commandments of Animalism, the most important of which is, "All animals are equal".

Snowball teaches the animals reading and writing while Napoleon educates young puppies on the principles of Animalism. Food is plentiful, and the farm runs smoothly. The pigs elevate themselves to positions of leadership and set aside special food items, ostensibly for their personal health. Awhile Napoleon and Snowball struggle for preeminence. When Snowball announces his plans to build a windmill, Napoleon has his dogs chase Snowball away and subsequently declares himself leader of Animal Farm.

Napoleon enacts changes to the governance structure of the farm, replacing meetings with a committee of pigs who will run the farm. Through a young pig named Squealer, Napoleon claims credit for the windmill idea. The animals work harder with the promise of easier lives with the windmill. When the animals find the windmill collapsed after a violent storm, Napoleon and Squealer convince the animals that Snowball is trying to sabotage their project. Once Snowball becomes a scapegoat, Napoleon begins purging the farm with his dogs, killing animals he accuses of consorting with his old rival.'Beasts of England' is replaced by an anthem glorifying Napoleon, who appears to be adopting the lifestyle of a man. The animals remain convinced that they are better off than they were when under Mr Jones.

Mr Frederick, one of the neighboring farmers, attacks the farm, using blasting powder to blow up the restored windmill. Though the animals win the battle, they do so at great cost, as many, including Boxer the workhorse, are wounded. Despite his injuries, Boxer continues working harder and harder, until he collapses while working on the windmill. Napoleon sends for a van to take Boxer to the veterinary surgeon, explaining that better care can be given there. Benjamin, the cynical donkey who "could read as well as any pig",[8] notices that the van belongs to a knacker, and attempts a futile rescue. Squealer reports that the van was purchased by the hospital and the writing from the previous owner had not been repainted. But in reality, Napoleon has sold his most loyal and long-suffering worker in exchange for money that he can use to purchase whisky.

Years pass, and the pigs start to resemble humans, as they walk upright, carry whips, and wear clothes. The Seven Commandments are abridged to a single phrase: "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others". Napoleon holds a dinner party for the pigs and local farmers, with whom he celebrates a new alliance. He abolishes practice of the revolutionary traditions and renames the farm "The Manor Farm". As the animals look from pigs to humans, they realize they can no longer distinguish between the two.

Animal Farm

Animal Farm is an allegorical and dystopian novel by George Orwell, published in England on 17 August 1945. According to Orwell, the book reflects events leading up to the Russian Revolution of 1917 and then on into the Stalin era in the Soviet Union.[1] Orwell, a democratic socialist,[2] was a critic of Joseph Stalin and hostile to Moscow-directed Stalinism, especially after his experiences with the NKVD and the Spanish Civil War.[3] The Soviet Union, he believed, had become a brutal dictatorship, built upon a cult of personality and enforced by a reign of terror. In a letter to Yvonne Davet, Orwell described Animal Farm as a satirical tale against Stalin "une conte satirique contre Stalin",[4] and in his essay "Why I Write" (1946), he wrote that Animal Farm was the first book in which he had tried, with full consciousness of what he was doing, "to fuse political purpose and artistic purpose into one whole".

The original title was Animal Farm: A Fairy Story, though the subtitle was dropped by U.S. publishers for its 1946 publication and subsequently all but one of the translations during Orwell's lifetime omitted it. Other variations in the title include: A Satire and A Contemporary Satire.[4] Orwell suggested the title Union des républiques socialistes animales for the French translation, which recalled the French name of the Soviet Union, Union des républiques socialistes soviétiques, and which abbreviates to URSA, the Latin for "bear", a symbol of Russia.[4]

Orwell wrote the book from November 1943–February 1944, when the wartime alliance with the Soviet Union was at its height and Stalin was held in highest esteem in Britain among the people and intelligentsia, a fact that Orwell hated.[5]........

Is anyone following the ongoing Russian response to the conflicts in Syria?

Google "Putin" and "body language". The association is constantly being mentioned in news reports......

I can't get over how remarkable that Putin's physical appearance speaks to an exact likeness of a younger Pierre Eliot Trudeau.........who by conicidence iirc was said to have had direct ties to communism in his early days, during the same time Russia was ruled by communism (but I'm making no claims as a political historian).

SMurph, as you say you lived in Canada during that era, do you see the resemblance?

Since Eric Blair - aka George Orwell was a self proclaimed Socialist it's easy to why Rambler adores him with a burning passion...

"I was in the police, which is to say that I was part of the actual machinery of despotism."

"The rich, wrote Orwell, keep workers in lifelong drudgery as they see the poor as "such low animals that they would be dangerous if they had leisure; it is safer to keep them too busy to think."10 Although he never became a Marxist, Orwell gave Marx considerable credit for his insights into the workings of a system built on profit. He wrote, "
Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also"…. It was Marx who brought it to life. And ever since he did so the motives of politicians, priests, judges, moralists and millionaires have been under the deepest suspicion–which, of course, is why they hate him so much.
----------

'But George Orwell had a different vision than these conservatives, and for that, his life and works have something to offer the left today. Orwell became a self-described socialist as a result of lessons learned early in life. His service as a colonial policeman in Burma turned him into a fierce anti-imperialist with a commitment to exposing oppression and championing the rights of the working class .

His attorney is still trolling for cash.
His wife knows her life is in danger and is thanking her lucky stars it was not her that night. That's why she was staying with her family, she knows he's dangerous."

"I'll bet she loses weight and gets a real man. I think she knows she might end up being his next victim if she didn't divorce him.
I don't think she will tell secrets about him, it might endanger her life. She knows better than anyone what he is capable of. That's probably why she wasn't staying there when he was angry, she was afraid of him.
Zimmerman is a loose cannon and he will explode again. She is smart enough to not want to be around when that happens."

Now she can continue with her life and find a real man.

She was planning to divorce him before this happened according to the scuttlebutt. She put it on hold to stand by him during his legal problems. Then, he didn't look at her or speak to her after the verdict. She looks very, very sad in the pictures of her that day. I feel sorry for her.

He didn't go to her court appearance.

What a pack of wackos you all are with your armchair psychology. Mr. Zimmerman is no doubt upset at the divorce, but few marriages could withstand the stress that these young people have been under since the wrongful arrest of Mr. Zimmerman, being forced to live in hiding due to lunatics like the ones who post here, and the stress of having to defend against a ridiculous murder charge, look at the filthy incubator and sperm donor every day, listen to their lies about their thug spawn..........VERY few marriages could survive all that, and Mr. and Mrs. Zimmerman are young and haven't been married all that long. I'm sure they're both hurting, but their divorce was certainly predictable. I wish them both the best........they are yet again the victims of the Martin/Fulton clan and a final time the victims of that filthy beast Trayvon who is, thankfully, dead.
Leftists could care less. All they really care about is people are suffering because of their actions. It makes them feel good all over. Insulting them, criticizing them, blaming them only makes leftists feel even better.

When did I do that? You have a very short memory.

The most I ever said about Ohio SYG is they were going to introduce legislation, but the Martin case came up and they put it on a shelf. Now that it's over, it's being brought up again.
