Einstein once said, "If you can't explain it to a six year old, you don't understand it yourself."
If anyone says Politics is complicated, just give them this book.
This novel is put cross through the eyes of Farm Animals who want freedom from Oppressing Humans.
Such is the simplicity that anyone who is a casual reader will understand much about Politics from this novel.
George Orwell has masterfully demonstrated the harsh realities of the fake world we live in where we all think that we are free but yet we are slaves.
"All animals are equal. But some animals are more equal than others."
Animal Farm is about our society. It's about the power, people holding it and how they become corrupt.
It's an amazing novel which explains how power turned the pigs from 'comrades' to leaders aka dictators with whips and threats in less than 100 pages.
Amazing read and highly recommended.
U must have little knowledge about communism Russian revolution ..post and pre revolution russia..read about Joseph stalin his political life..his brutal implementation of policies ...removal and exection of tratsky, bukharin and other communist leaders....he used to people in four categories 1 supporter 2 co leader who cn be competetior 3 leaders who critisize him 4 neutral ..only 1 and 4were survived in strict surveillance..mass execution , disappearance was common in stalin era..sometimes name plate of officers changes twice a day....lenin said in his will about stalin "his skills r doubtless but this cook will serve such overspicy dishes that any man can't eat ."
Nowadays Communism z considered a failed ideology ..." lower class of animals with limited ration and long work hours without complaint " .russia china and all d communist nations discarded principal of communism but this story z upto some extent apply on every communist nation..mao jedong cn be fit here too in place of stalin ...
Even today in third world countries mr john cn be assumed as past colonian ruler and pigs cn be their political leader ...Benjamin d donkey forces you to think that things never change only characters r change and things like revolution make them worse ..
"Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. Yet he is lord of all the animals. He sets them to work, he gives back to them the bare minimum that will prevent them from starving, and the rest he keeps for himself.”
The author depicts the processes, which the pigs use to gain power step by step with the use of deception and manipulation of the animals. The rebellion which started for a good cause ends up being corrupted. All the characters are based on the Russian revolution and this book is an exact reflection of the political system that is running throughout the world.
Modern day Politics is nothing but a game of manipulation. It's all about obtaining power. We people are easily deceived by the manipulative talks of the politicians. As Adolf Hitler said "Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it."
Their promises have been repeated so often that a majority of us actually believe these things will happen but nothing happens... ever..
They have no concern for public interest. All they want is power and to obtain that power they can do anything even killing someone and walking on their corpses and this book shows it.
This short novel has a lot to say.
How could animals take over the Farm from humans? nice thought. Very good satire, as well.
Could have been bit more better. Somehow it ended so soon than expected. Best part is how one of them only, who changes all the thoughts just by adding two more words as per her own liking.
This is a very nice example of how things went in an illiterate society and how few knowledgeable people manipulate the things and the minds of the former ones? Written very well, this political satire is far ahead of its times, I guess. Even when the situation in that times were under Royal Rule, even though this thought shows how author observed these deep lying leeches of the then society. Still, how people with authority used such naive people with immature minds to gain the position, best suited for themselves.
I really enjoyed it and find it very close to the current situation of society under the influence of Political goons.
The reports and metrics read by Squealer eerily resembles the metrics read out by management folks during the management review/ board meeting/ investor meet - depicting a rosy picture of the organization even when the things are miserable at the ground level.
The way how Snowball is ousted and later portrayed to all as a villain is yet another classic illustration - of History is always written by the winners. Napoleon becomes the hero, a true master inspite of what he does to the Animal farm.
