Asked by Deborah

The theme corruption is based on the real events that happen during the Russian Revolution, compare the theme corruption raised on Animal Farm to other real events that happen in other country that you know?

Animal Farm is a satiric book by George Orwell, where he essentially tries to portray the Russian Revolution and communism via the use of animals. In the book the animals get fed up with Farmer Jones (their owner) and kick him out, then they make a sort of political system of their own, which in a nutshell is communism. This system, just like real-life communism, is not short of faults. This is a short summary, the book goes more into detail. Other real events that you could link it to: Present-day Russia, after the fall of the Soviet Union there was hope that Russia would emerge from the hardships of communism, that is however not the case. The vast majority of citizens in Russia still live in poverty on the other hand the oligarchs and upper class live lavish lifestyles. Napoleon from the book can be compared to the present day leader, the story of president Putin's rise to power has certain features akin to Napoleon's seizure of power, namely violence and treachery. Cuba would also be a very suitable example for this question. (As in most political questions there is controversy to any statement, hence this answer should be taken with an open-mind. It can be sensitive to compare any country to Animal Farm)
