Fewer books have a stronger conservative message than does Animal Farm.....

Hello?? Anybody home? Animal Farm is already a conservative version of Animal Farm. That’s why it was banned in communist countries.

“Fewer books have a stronger conservative message...”
I don’t get it either?! “Animal Farm” and “1984” are conservative messages (aren’t we sort of living them right now?) Maybe the book is written for young children to get the message across? Just a thought.
Sorry for the slow reply. The difference is very simple Orwell was a European socialist that worried about communism while I am an American conservative worried about socialism and communism among other issues of the day. Orwell did not deal directly with religion which I do as well as many other issues. Orwell would agree with modern day American conservatism in his rejection to totalitarianism but he is no American conservative.
