Because of the simplicity of this novel, many people consider it to be a children's story. However, beyond it's lighthearted surface, it is truly a satirical attack against Stalinism.

Every day humans are using defenseless animals for cruel and most often useless tests. The animals cannot fight for themselves therefore we must.

Animal Farm Comparison - Most directly one would say that Animal Farm is an allegory of Stalinism, growing out from the Russian Revolution in 1917. Because it is cast as an animal fable it gives the reader/viewer, some distance from the specific political events. The use of the fable form helps one to examine the certain elements of human nature which can produce a Stalin and enable him to seize power. Orwell, does however, set his fable in familiar events of current history. Old Major, a eminent pig on the Jones farm, is regarded as the wise superior by the other animals....   [tags: Animal Farm Essays] 958 words

Until recently, scientists did not treat animals with the utmost respect and even used such methods as vivisection, or basically operating on a live animal without any form of anesthetic, as a means of testing on animals. It is obvious why people would be against animal testing in the past, but now technology and new laws have brought us into a new era in which animal testing can be much more humane when it is used....   [tags: Science Argumentative Persuasive Essays]
