Animal Liberation By: Peter Singer “Animal Liberation” is a novel highlighting the ignorance of people about what animals go through in order to fulfill whatever humans need. Whether it is meals or experimentation, millions of animals suffer each year. The author really goes the extra mile to try to make the reader see his point of view by being descriptive in his explanations of the types of pain animals feel. For example, Bunnies are used to test products for eye irritation by placing them in a chamber with only their heads exposed and dropping the product into their eyes. The eyes of the bunnies often become irritated, infected, and even blind.

America, being under the United Nations standard for a country's gross donation would rise in the ranks to being a charitable country that donates the most which would spread American leadership qualities towards other nations. This formula to solving world poverty benefits each individual by raising morals, benefits the nation by raising its standards among others around the globe, and benefits the nation by getting rid of world poverty. On the other hand, Singer's Solution also comes with a downside which is that getting everyone in America to donate a great portion of their income will prove a difficult task. Singer's studies show that on average an American who makes fifty thousand dollars a year only spends thirty thousand on necessities, so according to his solution the
The quote, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely,” by Lord Acton is demonstrated in Animal Farm perfectly, and concisely as the characters, plot, and themes show how power can absolutely corrupt. Orwell uses animals to represent humans. Through this he demonstrates the corruption of humans. The animals mimic humans, including the flaws, which show the extremity of human corruption.

But it is you giving enabling someone to control you such as Old Major’s speech. “We are born, we are given just so much food as will keep the breath in our bodies, and those of us who are capable of it are forced to work to the last atom of our strength; and the very instant that our usefulness has come to an end we are slaughtered with hideous cruelty (Orwell 3).” What this quote points out is that you are the one who has power over everything and when you are ‘slaughtered with hideous cruelty’ it is you giving others the power to control you. Since the pigs were the ‘brainworkers’, they start to gain more and more power subsequently through leadership which then corrupts them.
