A few lines by George Orwell

From the last chapter of Animal Farm:

“Somehow it seemed as though the farm had grown richer without making the animals themselves any richer – except, of  course, for the pigs and the dogs.


There was, as Squealer was never tired of  explaining, endless work in the supervision and organization of the farm. Much  of this work was of a kind that the other animals were too ignorant to understand.


But still, neither pigs nor dogs produced  any food by their own labour; and there were many of them, and their appetites  were always good.”

Animal Farm was published in 1945.

In the next post, I shall be back in the present.

Fear not, keep warm and cosy.
