My seven commandments

1. Whatever goes upon four legs or has wings is an enemy.

2. Whatevever goes upon two legs is a friend.

3. A human with an oppertunity must harm or kill an enemy.

4. No human must be found portraying animal instincts.

5. All humans are equal- in different ways

6. No human shall consume any animal product.

7. A human found disobeying any rule will be punishable by death or exile.


The thoughts behind my commandments:
As George Orwell made the commandments for the animals against humans, so I decided to convert them from human commandments to animals commandments and then back to human. So the commandments will be assumming that at the end of the story the animals win, and the humans that are surviving are forced into labour (although this does not happen). So the humans make commandments against the Animal race. But the humans are slightly more severe in their commandments…

“Two legs good, Four legs bad!”

    Thank you very much for the inclusion of your commentary. I like the way that you have imagined a dystopian future that centres around a possible outcome of the novel.

    When I look at commandment 6 – this would seem to imply that the surviving humans are vegetarian – is this the case? Why?
