‘Animal Farm’, a classic novel about Socialists changing the meanings of things, is really about Capitalism…so say the Socialists.

Author’s Note: A free version of “Animal Farm” can be found here. Please. Read it. It’s only 53 pages. It is the world you live in. Open your eyes.

You know there is a new rip in the time space fabric of the universe when modern Socialists change the meaning of a classic book by George Orwell that warned us that Socialists pursue their socialism by changing what things mean.

Via Twitchy and Mediaite, which has a transcript in case the thought of sitting through even three minutes of this on video is too much. Last week she [MSNBC’s Krystal Ball] claimed that “Animal Farm” was about fatcat capitalist vampires keeping the working man down; this week she acknowledges that it’s technically about communism, but now that the commies are all gone, the book can safely be repurposed for other leftish ends. Because if there’s one thing George Orwell stood for, it’s distorting the plain meaning of words to advance your collectivist political agenda. Hot Air

How ironic. In “Animal Farm,” the animals create what we would consider akin to our Constitution, the purpose of which was to protect all of the animals from each other, provide freedom and stability and limit any one group of animals from having more power over another group. Their Constitution read as follows:

THE SEVEN COMMANDMENTS

1. Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy.

2. Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings, is a friend.

3. No animal shall wear clothes.

4. No animal shall sleep in a bed.

5. No animal shall drink alcohol.

6. No animal shall kill any other animal.

7. All animals are equal. (chapter 2)

“The pig said that everyone would follow the commandments and ‘they would form an unalterable law by which all the animals on Animal Farm must live for ever after’ (ch 2). Of course, it does not quite work out this way.”

The pigs soon decide to begin the consolidation of power away from the other animals. Sound familiar? You’re living that right now, with a pig in the White House, surrounded by all the pigs in Congress. Slowly, methodically, the pigs began to re-write their Constitution, and deny to the other animals that they had made any changes, even though they were re-writing history, as follows:

Soon the pigs began changing the commandments.  For example, commandment 4 is changed to forbid not beds, but beds with sheets.  Some animals realize the commandments are being changed.

Clover had not remembered that the Fourth Commandment mentioned sheets; but as it was there on the wall, it must have done so. (ch 6)

This commandment is changed when the pigs begin to live in the house.  It is significant both because they are re-writing history and because they are beginning to set themselves apart from the other animals and act more human.

Another commandment that the animals “ remembered wrong” (ch 8), meaning it was changed, was commandment 5.  It is changed to say that animals cannot drink alcohol “to excess” after the pigs begin to like it.

Commandment 6 is changed to add “without cause” (ch 8) so the pigs can kill animals that disagree with them.  Finally, commandment 7 is changed.

There was nothing there now except a single Commandment. It ran:

ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL

BUT SOME ANIMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS (ch 10).

With this change, the pigs cement their power and control over the farm.  The pigs become more cruel, and begin to act exactly like humans because “after that it did not seem strange when next day the pigs who were supervising the work of the farm all carried whips in their trotters” (ch 10). eNotes

Hey. America. Obama says everyone is equal, but some are more equal than others, and he will decide who.

Hey. America. MSNBC says that a book about how Socialists re-write the law, and re-write history, and change what things means, in order to consolidate power and strip you of your freedom, is really about Capitalism, not about Socialism.

Hey. America. Is that the change you were looking for? Is that the change you can believe in?
