Are We All a Bunch of Pigs?

"No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to main again; but already it was impossible to say which was which." - George Orwell, Animal Farm

I just finished reading Animal Farm this morning and it was, for lack of a better word, awesome. What a statement it is about our society and culture, and the greed of human beings for power and wealth. Though written about an animal society, it is meant to speak volumes about our own kind and the way that we have created classes, rules, regulations and passed judgments based on, for the most part, nothing. I urge you to read this page-turner and take another look at the treatment of your fellow man. Your treatment of your fellow man. Whether a horse, a goose, a donkey, a pig or a human..we're all just animals.
