The Wars, by Timothy Finley, has many scenes where animals are very significant to Robert Ross. Whether they are a spirit guide, someone to talk to, or foreshadowing a tragedy, all the animals played a significant role. Throughout the novel, The Wars, Robert has a strong connection with animals.

87). In this way, Napoleon rules like a tyrant over the animals; he takes advantage of the animals’ blind loyalty and hard work by using it for his own selfish reasons. Old Major declares that man is the cause of suffering. However, when the animals remove the alleged evil of man, the animals continue to suffer. Consequently, by removing man from the scene, the animals pave their own path towards evil.
Food Inc. Animals are living beings and should be treated with decency in our society. I think that people often see animals as inferior creatures because they are not like us. However they are living creatures that depend on the same sources and basic needs to survive on this planet. For this reason alone, I believe that humans should treat animals with more decency.
Imagine a world if animals dominated it, and they treated us they same way we treated them. I would personally change my ways in treating animals because I hate it whenever I am looked down upon. Lastly, people should feel bad or have their conscience get to them whenever they mistreat all the animals in their life. If they don’t, what does that say about
Through animal imagery, the big picture of the horrid lifestyle of a slave during 19th century can be seen. Not only do animals and silent women describe the people of the 19th century, but they also describe the idea of realism and naturalism. All of the slaves in the book do not know enough to do anything about their future because they are kept ignorant by the slave owners. The description of the ignorant slaves gives the reader a sense naturalism. Douglass also gives an example of naturalism while explaining how he felt about his mother dying.
In the essay, “Letter to President Pierce”, written by Chief Seattle, he stated, “We know the white men does not understand our ways. One portion of the land is the same as the next, for he is a stranger who comes in the night and takes from the land whatever he needs. The Earth is not his brother, but his enemy, and when he conquered it, he moves on” (Seattle 648).

Experiencing the goodness of nature has become hard, because man has made itself a part of it (Lame Deer 687). He suggests that man should “listen to the air,” smell it, taste it and hear it. The air breathes new life into all. He speaks about the animation of minerals and rocks of the earth. To really feel nature Lame Deer articulates the sincerity of living in shacks, using an outhouse, taking ones time and listening to the music of outdoor insects (Lame Deer
Insofar as I can make-out, people are uncomfortable to know how animals die and to assume such a responsibility. When I've showed people videos of --seemingly credible-- factory farm footage they either react in two different ways: (1) either they quiver-away or plea me to turn it off (2) or they uncomfortably scoff at how ridiculously cynical it all is.

The fact of the matter is that the animal products we buy are the source of considerable pain and cruelty.
The conflicts among the animals and the humans included the defeat of Mr. Jones the head farmer, the bombing of the main farm windmill twice, and the death of Boxer the farm’s trusty cart-horse. The conflicts in the book would be Man vs Man, and Man vs Society. Boxer could have been described as the most sympathetic character in the novel, Boxer symbolized all of the best qualities: dedication, and loyalty.
