All animals at this point realize that they have been nothing to humans but subject to extremely strict and tremendous harsh treatment and they all want to have a rebellion for a more better and equal society. Later, the animals found the owner of the farm Mr. Jones drunk, so they took the opportunity to ram sack the food supply and when the animals heard the Men coming they attacked them and scared them off. That’s when the animals had full control and they b... ... middle of paper ... ...he beginning the pigs start out as animals who have no more power than any other animal on the farm, and they all have the same ideas.

Golding is making Jacks growing savage nature blatantly obvious, as he ignores the need for shelter and simply wants to go hunt down pigs. The hunt is no longer merely a source of gathering food but has transmuted into the only activity of interest and fulfillment for jack and his hunters.

Along with Piggys fall goes the Conch, the biggest symbol of civilization, now a nearly innocent boy and all civilization has been lost.
For example, the book states, “In the following days, the dogs become his (Napoleon’s) bodyguard and killing machine.” Napoleon orders the dogs to kill the farm animals because they don’t believe that Snowball is the cause of all bad. Once again, one of the seven commandments, “no animal shall kill another,” is changed to fit Napoleon’s way of doing things. Squealer, with his quick and smooth talk is always right there to explain for Napoleon’s actions. In addition, when the hens fail to “meet the egg productions,” the pigs become violent and slaughter them. The slaughter of animals continues when a sheep dies after it confesses to having urinated in the drinking pool.
The novel I choose to read for this assignment was Animal Farm; by George Orwell. This novel discusses how things like greed, wealth, corrupt leaders, and shortsightedness can destroy any chance of a Utopia. These qualities are shown mostly through the pigs, as they start to take control they lose sight of the original 7 seven commandants upon which Animalism was created. As the pigs become more powerful the other animals slowly start becoming less aware of what is really taking place. The pigs are were pretty much destroying whatever shred of animalistic society they had left and replacing it with a cold hard dictatorship in which all the beliefs that made animalism were changed to the pigs advantage.
By the end of the novel, Ralph becomes the prey of Jack's bloodthirsty group, and at the very end of the novel "Ralph wept for the end of innocence, the darkness of man's heart, and the fall through the air of a true, wise friend called Piggy"(Golding 225) to show that he will never change, he has found the evil that lurks within all human beings. Jack on the other hand, became more of a savage person as the book progressed. For example, the first time he encounters a pig, he is unable to bring himself to kill it. But Jack soon becomes obsessed with hunting and devotes himself to the task, painting his face like a barbarian and giving himself over to bloodlust. After he first kills a pig "His mind was crowded with memories; memories of the knowledge that had come to them when they closed in on the struggling pig, knowledge that they had outwitted a living thing, imposed their will upon it, taken away it's life like a long satis... ... middle of paper ... ...eat battle of wills between Ralph and Jack culminating in Jack and his tribe hunting down and smoking Ralph out of the forest, which ultimately led to their rescue.

It was PETA president, Ingrid Newkirk, who said slaughter of millions of chickens is a greater tragedy than the Nazi holocaust. She also said that a boy is no more valuable than a clam. PETA has fellow travelers. Guest Choice (www.guestchoice.com) cites fellow traveler, Paul Shapiro, a member of Compassion Over Killing, as saying, "Animals are the most oppressed group on the face of the planet. Eating meat is unethical - it is not your right to say an animal's life is worth a pleasant taste sensation in your mouth."
The sparrows and the Guerrilla Union of Shrews had more than enough animals to defeat the rats. Cluny had mortally wounded Abbot Mortimor and he was dying. Before he died he said that Brother Alf would become the next Abbot, Matthias would become the champion of Redwall and Matthias would marry Cornflower. All of those things happened and Matthias and Cornflower had a baby named Mattimeo. Kevin Frasier 4/17/05
“When Rodwell arrived, he found them slaughtering rats and mice- burning them alive in their cooking fires. Rodwell, being Rodwell, had tried to stop them. They would not be stopped –and, seeing that he took interest, they’d forced him to watch the killing of a cat” (Findley 150). Soldiers compel Rodwell to observe their sadistic actions on a cat as a result going against Rodwell’s nature. Interference of Rodwell’s morals ultimately led to his insanity which urges him to commit suicide.
Like animals, they act as they please, satisfying their own wants with no sense of morality. From Jim's lies of being a vegan to Alena's hatred towards mankind, we see an underlying theme. This theme is that a human being without spiritual depth and moral reasoning becomes just meat. Being the first-person narrator, Jim tells the reader about himself and eventually exposes what an animal he is. "I saw those ads in the magazines, the ones that showed the veal calves penned up in their own waste, their limbs atrophied, and their veins so pumped full of antibiotics they couldn't control their bowels, but when I took a date to Anna Maria's, I could never resist the veal scallopini" (Meyer 242).
