Of course, that was when our childhood heroes weren’t all in comic books or owned by Disney — but I’d venture another observation more in keeping with these end times.
Who can read Animal Farm without thinking of Donald Trump? If you live in Martin County Florida the answer is “everyone.”
I went to a lecture last night titled “The Prophetic Vision of George Orwell & the Politics of Power: Animal Farm and 1984 ” There came a point late in the lecture when some movie and book posters appeared on the screen, one of which showed Donald Trump. The shouting began.
The book in question ended with animals outside the farmhouse looking in at the drunken pigs and the drunken farmers and noting that it was impossible to tell them apart any longer. Some people still think Trump is another normal sort of president and we need to give him a chance.
