The book animal farm by George Orwell is an allegory about the Russian revolution in 1917. The most dominant theme in the book is inequality. It starts how the animal arrange themselves in chapter one and it grows by how Napoleon has mostly everything on the farm. At the end, it shows how inequality grows from a minor incident how the pigs and the dogs get more. That almost destroys the farm. In chapter one it shows inequality how the animals arrange themselves the smartest to the least animal in every of their meetings.

“First came the three dogs, Bluebell, Jessie and pincher and then the pigs, who settled down in the straw immediately in front of the platform.” (pg.4)

This might be a minor incident that shows inequality but it already shows inequality in chapter one so it means throughout the novel there is going to be inequality towards different animals. How some animals get more than the other animals? The smartest animals are the dogs and the pigs so they could come together to outsmart the other animals because of their superior intelligence and take over the farm and maybe get more than the other animals such as ration and other things to make them survive on the farm.

It shows inequality by how Napoleon is getting mostly everything on the farm and living a more luxurious life than the other animals.
“Napoleon inhabited in a separate apartment from the others he took his meals alone with two dogs to wait upon him, and always ate from the crown derby dinner service which had been in the glass cupboard in the drawing room” (pg.93)

This shows inequality by how Napoleon Is living a luxurious life from the other animals that don’t have enough ration and the animals work themselves to death while Napoleon is living really well eating in fancy dinner set with two guard dogs, around him all the time. He even has a taste tester in case one of the animal food poisons him. While Napoleon is having fun, the animals are working themselves to death working 60 hours a week they are not getting enough food to survive on the farm and if the animals do not agree with what Napoleon demands Napoleons will threaten the poor helpless animals that farmer Jones is going to come back and Napoleon id deceiving the animals. Deception is another main theme in the novel animal farm
