Animal Farm

Video above : some Islamic preacher in Indonesia who went on to slap a poor fella and proceeded to call his parents "dogs"

Automatically, within seconds, the novel Animal Farm came to my mind.

Animal Farm is an allegorical and dystopian novel by George Orwell, published in England on 17 August 1945. According to Orwell, the book reflects events leading up to the Russian Revolution of 1917 and then on into the Stalin era in the Soviet Union. - Wikipedia

But after seeing the video above, I realised that Animal Farm is still everywhere.

"Years pass, and the pigs start to resemble humans, as they walk upright, carry whips, and wear clothes. The Seven Commandments are abridged to a single phrase: "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others". Napoleon holds a dinner party for the pigs and local farmers, with whom he celebrates a new alliance. He abolishes the practice of the revolutionary traditions and restores the name "The Manor Farm". As the animals look from pigs to humans, they realise they can no longer distinguish between the two." - Wikipedia of Animal Farm
