Grim Facts of Life

George Orwell’s 1945 book, Animal Farm, is a chilling tale of animals that take over a farm, led by the pigs. In time, the cooperative slogans that united the animals, shift to favor the pigs.  Ultimately the worker animals are as badly abused as when the farm was run by humans.

The powerful work to maintain their power. No news there, then or now.
