This story can convey how unfair life can be for humans in 2018 is, how cruel and power-hungry leaders can get when put in charge of a group of lower class people, and how people with more power abuse the hard work of their people to live in luxury. This essay will examine how the story relates to real life and provide points to improve the argument that the book relates to real life.

Life Can be Unfair

All Animals are Equal. But Some Animals are More Equal Than Others. (pg 80, Orwell) In the book, Old Major is a prize boar who started with a dream of equality and freedom and died with his dream in mind, leaving his power to the pigs on the farm to continue his ruling. Instead of continuing the equal treatment towards all animals, they took over and slowly started abusing their power and their subjects. In real life, rulers may abuse their power as presidents, kings, or dictators and use their subjects as a way to do their bidding and treat those subjects like dirt while doing so. Like in Animal Farm, rulers may dream of equality or rights but may not be able to achieve what they dream before their time is up. Orwell shows this by showing the difference in the way the animals feel about the pigs at the beginning versus the end.

Higher/Lower Class Treatment

FOUR LEGS GOOD, TWO LEGS BAD! (pg 21, Orwell) In the book, The pigs are the hierarchy of the farm and look over it all with a watchful eye.
