Animal Farm tells the story of a group of farm animals who rise up against the powers that be, hoping to create a society of equality and justice where the animals can be happy and free. But some are not as they appear. Hiding behind false facades, these unexamined characters give rise to a terrifying new system of oppression. In the age of “woke culture,” we must ask ourselves this: Who and what is the puppet and the puppeteer? What is required to turn our ideals into reality? What is the art of true revolution? How do we handcraft the world we wish to live in? And what mistakes do we repeat when we fail to study our inner world as we attempt to change the outer?
