“Animal Farm” and “America’s Ruling Class”

<— previous Reading List Item——————————————————————————next Reading List item—>

George Orwell’s Animal Farm was first published in 1945.  Based on the events of the Communist Revolution in Russia, its message is timeless.

The primary theme of this wonderful satire is most famously expressed by the slogan, “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”

In the summer of 2010, Professor Angelo Codevilla of Boston University addresses similar themes in an incisive essay, America’s Ruling Class — And the Perils of Revolution.  Professor Codevilla’s work provides a very original analysis of the contemporary political and social environment in America.  It is a perfect complement to Orwell’s classic.
