26&38, it shouldn't matter whether they'll listen. Not fighting against ignorance is what lets it thrive in today's society. At least make the attempt.

Fighting against ignorance? Might as well try to kill a roach infestation by hitting every single roach with a hammer. Idiocy multiplies too fast and is engendered by social media and mass media.

At least they care about animal abuse. Sheesh, animal abuse is terrible


23/27/48 you are all stupid! #18 was saying that the FML isn't about animal abuse and it's about how stupid OP's classmates are for thinking the book is about animal abuse. And #18 was also saying that #3 is stupid for misreading the FML and thinking it's about animal abuse as well! Ik assuming that #18 is against animal abuse!

Because caring about animals makes someone a good person. Just like Ingrid Newkirk, the owner of PETA. She is such a good person that she attacked Pokemon, Mario, cooking mama and puts down 98% of all the animals she "saves"!
And that "inner wolf" kid that finds shooting a wolf out of self defense oh so horrible yet supports shark finning.
Lets not forget about that anti animal abuse girl who called me a horrible person on Deviantart because I said I loved my mother more than animals!
Hooray for kind hearted animal lovers!

(Not all are like that but I have met a lot of "animal lovers" who are just like that.)

One could argue the point thought. The difference between ignorance and opinion depends on the argument that follows the statement. Depending on how the teacher plans the lesson depends on my vote.

I'm really trying to think she has a point. Hopefully she's waiting for the analyzing and interpret stage or allowing the kids to derive a conclusion before ... Damn I can't come up with a good excuse.

#13 It's an allegory of events leading up to the 1917 Russian Revolution and then of Stalin's Soviet Union. The animal characters represent specific players in that history, with Napoleon the pig, for example, representing Stalin.

It's technically about communism and the Russian revolution but it's about more than that. It's about how revolutions often lead to a full circle. The oppressed rise against their oppressors, take power, and then go on to commit the same crimes that their oppressors were guilty of all the while tricking people into thinking they're better than the former leaders by constantly telling stories of how bad it used to be and how much better it is now. Basically, absolute power corrupts absolutely

It's a bird! It's a plane! No! It's the moral of the story past #9's head! A quick read on Orwell's life will teach you that he didn't believe in Hobbes's bullshit.


But of course, I know that it has been written like a satiric representation of the USSR during the stalinian period but if you read it today, you can see that it fits like a glove to the modern capitalism as well. Take for exemple the deformation of the information by slogans repeated and repeated. Extremes touch each other and that's the reason why "Animal Farm" doesn't speak only about communism but about any exploitation of man by man in the name of "equality".
