It is important to note that the animals on the farm started out with the best intentions. They saw a need for change and were willing to do anything necessary to accomplish such change. As I read the book, I was repeatedly reminded of certain aspects of our newly elected president, Obama. The pigs saw the need for “change” and came up with a plan in order to greatly improve society. One of the biggest problems with the society on the animal farm was the lack of education of the citizenry. Only a select few could even read past the letter A. Napoleon wanted to win the respect and isolate the youth of the community. Huh? This sounds vaguely familiar. Another downfall of the system was that the animals could not protect themselves from the pig leadership. Yet again there is someone in this country who has strongly advocated the deprivation or infringement of one of the most fundamental traditions of this country; the right eradication of guns from the citizens. The animals couldn’t hold the government responsible because the written rules were not followed and changed by the will of the government.

George Washington said, “If in the opinion of the people the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change through usurpation; for though this in one instance may be the instance may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed.”
