Before the death of the beloved Old Major, he ignited the spark that soon became a wild and roaring fire. His motivational speech instigated animals on Manor Farm, previously known as, to rebel against Farmer Jones. As his last words to the world he revealed his strange dream about the evils inflicted upon them by their human keepers and their need to rebel against the tyranny of Man. “Let us face it, our lives are miserable, laborious and short. Major said, “We are born, we are given just enough food as will keep our breath in our bodies, and those of us who are capable of it are forced to work to the last atom of are strength. And after we become useless, we are sent to be slaughtered. ” We all cheered to his words and started to think unto his perspective. Life looks better without cruelty and that is exactly Old Major’s point. His motive is to try and get the animals to think in that direction, try to veer the path that he wants. The animals are already suffering, but up until that point they were also ignorant.
But was that also bliss? “But is it not true that man is the only creature that consumes without producing? Yet he is the lord of all animals. Get rid of Man and all of our trouble will vanish. Everything we give shall all belong to us, we mustn’t suffer, nor shall we share. Imagine everything that would belong to us? Would you not want paradise if you got the chance? ” Major said. What he claimed and what we got, what similarities are there? What changes can be seen? It turns out that the residents of Animal Farm have dug a hole too deep and now cannot escape.
What will the fate of Animal Farm be if Old Major’s words turns into a curse? All Old Major saw was happiness and a dream that gave all animal’s freedom and equality. But what he didn’t see coming was corruption and a lust for power that might as well destroy the entire farm. The Beasts of England, the one song, one hope has been taken away from us, and now we must fear the same with our rights. If Old Major was still here he would have guided us away, but unfortunately he is not. So brace yourselves animals, for the prophecy of 2012 might come earlier that thought.
