Diliman Diary blog 11.25.2011

I take this occasion to remember George Orwell's seminal work, "Animal Farm," which is an allegory set in the form of a novel about animals who formed their own government and who attacked and criticized and villified their former masters (the humans). The tragedy implied in this work is that in the end it was the animals themselves - the former slaves - who themselves became tyrannical, undemocratic and unjust.

Though this novel was published in 1945, it remains relevant all over the world, up to this day.
