In these days of Banks lining there own selfish pockets at the cost of the people who scrimp and save, and those very same days that mean a person can be exploited in the work place to such an extent that they are totally replaceable in a throw away society and just as easily replaced for less….. here is a piece of Animal Farm to mull over:
“…. Today he and his friends had visited Animal Farm and inspected every inch of it with their own eyes, and what did they find? Not only the most up-to-date methods, but a discipline and an orderliness which should be an example to all farmers everywhere. He believed that he was right in saying that the lower animals on Animal Farm did more work and received less food than any animals in the county. Indeed, he and his fellow-visitors today had observed many features which they intended to introduce on their own farms immediately……… “If you have your lower animals to contend with, he said, “we have our lower classes!” This BON MOT set the table in a roar; and Mr. Pilkington once again congratulated the pigs on the low rations, the long working hours, and the general absence of pampering which he had observed on Animal Farm.”
Does this resemble anything familiar?
