Summum ius summa iniuria--More law, less justice

Quote of the day 11/20

For the uninitiated, the pigs are the political class of the animals after a Revolution against a human farmer who treated them in an evil manner, and the whole story is an allegory of the Russian revolution of 1917 (idealism is perverted into totalitarianism).

"No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which."
-George Orwell, the conclusion of Animal Farm
