            George Orwell's controversial novel "Animal Farm" has often been thought of as Orwell's opinions, or interpretations of historical events that happened around the time it was written. The historical event that it is most often compared to is the Russian Revolution. "Animal Farm" and the Russian Revolution have many similarities and ideas. The characters, settings, and the plots are close if not exactly the same. In addition "Animal Farm" is a satire and allegory of the Russian Revolution , and it seems that George Orwell meant for it to be that way. .
             Karl Marx was a German scholar who lived in the nineteenth century, he was an idealist who spent most of his life studying and writing about history and economics. Marx wrote books that stated that the only way to establish justice was for the workers to overthrow the capitalists by means of violent revolution. He urged workers around the world to revolt against their rulers. "Workers of the world unite" he wrote. "You have nothing to lose but your chains". During the Russian Revolution Marx's ideas were used by a man named Lenin who had overthrown Russia's irresponsible leader " Nicholas the Second" Lenin had better ways to keep Russia alive and happy for the workers of Russia had been living in poverty for quite a few years. Later in the Revolution the noble Lenin was also over thrown by one of his communist comrades Joseph Stalin. Stalin was a quieter simpler sort of man and while he was in rule the communist party took many privileges. Also Stalin used many of Lenin's ideas that he had earlier opposed. It seemed to be most important to Stalin that he stay in power and I order to do this he used many brutal tactics. Chief among his creations were highly effective political weapons such as an effective propaganda spreading machine that more and more promoted that Stalin was a nearly god like creature, and also he had a secret police force which kept the country silent through the years of terror.
