We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.
Comrades! You may think, and in error, I must add, that the essential measures we, Animal Farm, have promulgated are too stringent. I assure you this is not so! We pigs have worked day and night to formulate, verify, and codify those necessary regulations to keep us all safe! Were it not for the selfless dedication of swine and allies, disease, error, and danger would creep in! And then, you know, as sure as the sun rises, that THEY would return to wreak havoc! Farmer Jones! Goldstein! Trump! Never, never can we let that horrible fate come to be!
