Marxist Law and Animal Farm

QUESTION: Marxist Law – Animal Farm

ANSWER:

Animal Farm (a 1999 film based on the book by George Orwell)—This political satire is set on a small farm where the prized boar, Old Major, describes his dream of “Animal Freedom” from the lazy, drunken owners. The animals lead a revolt (think 1917 Bolshevik revolution) against the humans to take back the farm. After the revolution, the pigs, who are the cleverest animals, rule the new roost and every animal seems to be getting a fair share. The only problem is the pigs begin acting more and more like men! They lie and manipulate to remain in power and exploit those below them.

Marxist Law – Some Animals are More Equal than Others

George Orwell’s Animal Farm describes how the Communist dream in Russia quickly began to sour, as those in Stalin’s government became corrupt—just like the leaders they had overthrown in the name of revolution. A famous slogan from the book/film: “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
