My Animal Farm

Introduction

In modern China, students are beginning to rebel against all forms of education. After a recent speech from their leader Xi Jinping , students are refusing to do all homework and class work assigned. Students are refusing to do all homework ,because  Xi  explained to them that  all their education won’t be needed when they are working in Apple’s sweatshops. Every student over the age of 8 is now forced to work in Apple’s sweatshop. All women who work for Apple have to get their tubes tied to insure they won’t  get any days off due to their pregnancy.

All students average about $120.00 a month that’s about a $1.12 per hour. students are beginning to get fed up with being over-worked and under -paid, so the  student come together and plan to eject Xi from office. The plan was a success. Now there’s a highly intelligent group of 8-14 year olds ruling the fourth largest country in the world. The students chose a new leader named Yoshida Akio. Akio promised no one would ever be forced to work and women could have as many children as they wanted. Akio later begins facing problems, there are no workers so he can’t earn money to provide for China’s citizens. Now Akio is forced to make all of his citizens work in Apple’s sweatshop regardless of their age. “Ideologies of Liberation Often Lead to Tyrannies”, which is also shown in Animal Farm by George Orwell.  Adults began to take advantage of the students because of their age, but little do the adults know Akio had been preparing for this moment. Akio planned to have any adult, who tries to take over to be exiled. The theme, that can also be seen in Animal Farm is ” Age doesn’t Determine Intelligence”. These themes are shown to be a prime example of the dangers of taking advantage of age.

Themes

Ideologies of Liberation Often Lead to Tyrannies

Akio is fed up with people turning against him, even though he is providing a large enough salary to be stable for all of his working families. The older workers are trying to persuade Akio he should pay the young workers less, since they have less expenses. Akio begins to pay all of his workers less, because he is tired of living a harsh life, for ungrateful people. As Akio begins to save large amount of money, he builds statues of him self and has his citizens bow down to it and bring offerings to his statue.

 Age doesn’t Determine Intelligence

Akio knew the adults would try to take advantage of him, since he was a child. Akio planned to put the idea in everyone’s mind, that they wouldn’t have to work just to get them to make him the leader. Akio also knew his citizens were very gullible, so he made it seem like he lessened the workers salaries as a punishment, but it was another step to get the adults removed easier.
