Animal Farm

Animal Farm was written by George Orwell, an honest socialist who cared deeply about England. This makes him an embarrassment for international socialists who are Lenin's Useful Idiots when they are not rogues. The fact that it was published in England on 17 August 1945 tells us about its importance. During the war paper was in short supply. Everything was rationed but his book got through the system. His Majesty's Government saw its point.

Animal Farm explained by the Wikipedia
The novel addresses not only the corruption of the revolution by its leaders but also how wickedness, indifference, ignorance, greed and myopia corrupt the revolution. It portrays corrupt leadership as the flaw in revolution, rather than the act of revolution itself. It also shows how potential ignorance and indifference to problems within a revolution could allow horrors to happen if a smooth transition to a people's government is not achieved.

PS In the final part of the book we see how the humans [ the allegorical Capitalist Swine of the book ] and the pigs [ representing Communist leaders ] co-exist very happily. It rather like Joe Stalin collaborating with Adolf Hitler in the invasion of Poland.
