George Orwells Animal farm is a book about stuck up pigs who illuminates the range of human experience, from love to hate. There are seven commandments, these seven are broken and changed, this causes destruction and hate.
One night during Animal Farm Major "the head pig" ordered a meeting for all animals, this meeting was his last and had important things to say, laws and commandments, the seven were clear to not be broken like the major said. These commandments were, 1. Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy. 2. Whatever goes upon four legs and has wings is a friend. 3. No animal shall wear cloths. 4. No animal shall sleep in a bed. 5. No animal shall drink alcohol. 6. No animal shall kill another animal. 7. All animals are equal.
During the story the Majors rules were broken. The Major said "I have more to say, I merely repeat remember always your duty enmity towards man and all his ways." The Major is saying that you have to remember the hatred the animals have for people, and only like animals.(pg21)
During a few months period the laws were changing, and they changed to 1
2 3 4. No animals shall sleep in bed with sheets. 5. No animals shall drink alcohol to excess. 6. No animal shall kill another animal without cause. 7. All animals are equal but more than others. The Major said "No animal must ever tyrannize over his own kind, weak or strong, clever or simple, we are all brothers." The Major is saying don’t go against each other, because their our own kind. (pg.21,22)
All the pigs were stuck up and snobby, but they weren’t hiding what they were doing. One day Muriel was reading off the seven commandments to herself, she said, "The animals had remembered seven commandments wrong, no animals shall drink alcohol, but there were two words that they had added, that no animal shall drink alcohol to excess.(pg. 103)
The moral of the story is, to always follow the rules. You shouldn’t change the rules, look what happened to the pigs.
