It really is amazing how a book can stand the test of time. Animal Farm is a book that if you haven’t read since highschool you should pick up again. At 138 pages even George Bush could read it in a day. This time taking the time to read the forward and the introduction. One can learn so much from these parts of the book. What I found most shocking and relative to our time is how Napolean when faced with a calamity blamed it on Snowball who was not even around anymore. I likened it to Bush blaming terrorism for what’s happening. The parellels between Orwell’s fable and today are uncanny.
Sadly he was writing about his time in the age of Stalin….

All animals are equal, some more than others
