Essays on Animal Farm

George Orwell, during his brilliant writing career, wrote primarily about social issues that he was concerned with.  With his novels, he all but invented the concept of social commentary through fictional stories, taking the concept to new heights whose influence is felt to this very day.  In Animal Farm, Orwell attempts to expose the ease with which mankind can be lead into the darker realms of governance with startling realism, separated from reality only by his use of animals as the main characters.

In Animal Farm, Orwell presents an animal society that is based on the principals of socialism.  One day on the farm the oldest pig Old Major, calls a meeting of all the animals on the farm.  At this meeting he tells the fellow animals about a dream he has regarding living on the farm with no humans and being in control of themselves.  Three days later Old Major dies but the idea is implanted in minds of three younger pigs who decide to work for the dream.

The animals soon attack the farmer, tossing him off the land and begin to survive on their own.  Snowball and Napoleon, the two most outspoken pigs, become the new community leaders and begin to help the farm prosper.  Snowball begins to teach the animals to read, but Napoleon takes a group of puppies away from the group in order to “educate” them.

There becomes a time when Snowball and Napoleon begin to squabble and when Snowball suggests building a powered windmill, Napoleon resists the idea.  When snowball calls for a vote from the other animals, Napoleon attacks Snowball, supported by the puppies he had been training, and runs him off the land.  After this, Napoleon then becomes a dictator, killing anyone that even begins to question him, and begins to act more and more human, including sleeping on a bed and wearing human clothes.  The pigs begin to walk and talk like the humans and to interact with the humans, conducting trade and socializing with them, to the point that one day the other animals can no longer tell through the farm window which is a pig and which is human.

  • Orwell based much of his work on his concerns for how easily society could be lead down paths that would lead to conditions of oppression.  In Animal Farm, his concern was sparked by how frequently those who claim that they want to “change” society end up no better than those they replaced.  Prepare an opinion paper reflecting how this concept is developed in Animal Farm and how it does or does not reflect reality.
  • Orwell’s novel, Animal House, is based on a socialist society, yet the lessons of the novel could apply equally to democratic societies, such as our own.  Is this a revelation of Thomas Jefferson’s warning regarding the price of liberty and if so, how?

Many of Orwell’s novels, when written, were considered offensive with many officials condemning them as attacks upon the government.  Such controversial topics can be difficult for students to write about in our modern society, thanks in part to the “political correctness” movement and is pressures upon academic institutions.  In this environment, students are often at a loss of how to begin work on their assignments, but all is not hopeless.  Our writers come from a diverse field of thinkers who focus more on the merits of the issue, rather than on its political correctness.  As such, they can provide papers written on any topic from the angle the writer wishes.  Since in truth they are not concerned with political correctness, our writers can prepare assignments from an uncensored environment, vastly improving the quality of the assignment.  All we need is your order.

Essays on Nineteen Eighty-Four

In 1984, Apple computers ran an ad rekindling interest in a 1948 novel by George Orwell, the pen name of Eric Arthur Blair (June 25th, 1903 – January 21st, 1950). This novel, named after the year the events were supposed to happen, was “Nineteen Eighty-Four.” Nineteen Eighty-Four was a dystopian prediction dealing with the trends George Orwell believed were already happening to the western world in the 1940s and where those trends might lead after World War II.

The novel Nineteen Eighty-Four is filled with dark allusions to the dangers overly powerful governmental forces represent in the world and what corruption of governmental power can do to individuality and the rights individuals in the U.S. and Great Britain have relished for several generations.

Though Nineteen Eighty-Four makes no reference to specific time references, other than the year of its occurrence, several elements imply several decades have passed. Among these elements in Nineteen Eighty-Four are references to an atomic war, a popular revolution in which “the party” takes power, the extensive development of a society radically different than that of 1948, and references to the many years of aggression between Oceania and the two other world-controlling super powers.

  • Many argue that the environment described in Nineteen Eighty-Four has begun to materialize in our modern world with the development and implementation of the myriad of features described in the novel. What are these features, how have they materialized in our modern society, and what are the current and potential future effects of these features? What actions could we undertake to mitigate or eliminate these effects?
  • In the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, George Orwell described the scenario of the United States becoming an aggressive imperialist power which seized control of most of the western world during an atomic war. How might such a scenario develop within the United States and are we currently on such a potential path? What might be done to prevent this from happening?

Though the environment in the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four had not developed by that date, many argue that Orwell was right materially, just not temporally. Today, even the academic environment is beginning to show symptoms of the Orwellian prophecy with the use of services such as TurnItIn.com and other “anti-plagiarism” detection software. Students and many academic scholars are highly concerned about the oppressive effects such software can and is having on the creativity of students. Reports of punitive action being taken against students over false positives are already spreading across the Internet and news media, prompting not only protests within the academic environment, but in civil courts across the United States as well.

Our writers make every effort to avoid accusations of plagiarism, though this practice is not prevalent amongst many of our competitors. During an era that companies such as ours should be taking increased precautions, many unscrupulous writing “services” are supplying “essays” that are filled with undocumented references or, worse yet, are directly copied articles from magazines and other periodicals. Students need to engage ethical companies to supply their much-needed academic essays and reports. Yet the forest of such companies is thick, dark and dangerous, filled with predators that have little regard for the future of the students.

Essays on Anticipatory Thinking

Mankind over the centuries has repeated made efforts to predict what turns of fortune the future will bring, both individually and socially.  Understanding the future has, to many people, been the keystone for planning activities and actions in hopes of improving the predicted future or, in some cases, to avoid it.  Whether called prophecies, predictions or projections, this deep set desire to know the future is almost universal.  In academic circles, the attempt to use logical and critical thinking to produce such predictions is called anticipatory thinking.

Anticipatory thinking, or “future studies” as it is more commonly called in public, is the art and science of extrapolating possible, probable or preferable future states from existing or predicted trends, seeking to understand what developments may occur and how those developments will change the environment being studied.  It is through anticipatory thinking that small business owners can predict or project their next year’s sales, based either on the trends shown by past accountings or upon predicted events and trends in their particular industry.

Anticipatory thinking is at the root of theoretical and experimental science.  Scientists use anticipatory thinking to determine what will likely happen in a given experiment or based upon their personal theories.  The scientists will then seek to test those anticipations by conducting experiments and matching the results with the product of their anticipatory thinking.

Anticipatory thinking is also at the heart of science fiction works.  Writers (who are often scientists themselves) will seek to present the products of their anticipatory thinking in the form of fictional scenarios.  Some of the earliest known records of anticipatory thinking are the engineering designs of Leonardo da Vinci in the 16th century. Many of the drawings and diagrams of this progressive, anticipatory thinker have been the inspiration of modern devices and technologies we so often take for granted today.

Some historic anticipatory thinking has taken on more sinister tones, such as George Orwell’s novel, “1984” and movies like “The Day After Tomorrow” in which the authors and producers exercised a level of anticipatory thinking in developing the plots of their works, warning us of the possible consequences of trends upon which their works are based. 

  • Many fictional works have attempted to predict the development and impact of technology and social philosophies on individual free will by using anticipatory thinking.  How do novels such as “1984” and “Brave New World” stand when compared with the development of modern society in the United States and United Kingdom?  Were the authors right about their predicted futuristic society?  If so, in what ways and how can modern man draw back from these developments if they are undesirable?
  • Through the use of anticipatory thinking, Thomas Malthus successfully predicted the relationship between food supplies and population size and the effects which overpopulation might trigger in human society.  How does this compare to the works of Paul Ehrlich and Ernest Callenbach in their corresponding books “The Population Bomb” and “Ecotopia?”
  • Many of our modern conveniences were first predicted through anticipatory thinking by science fiction authors building upon trends they perceived in technology.  Two such examples would be Isaac Asimov, who wrote about hand-held computers almost 20 years before the first hand-held calculator was manufactured, and Arthur C. Clarke, who predicted in the 1960s how important geosynchronous orbits would become in military and commercial communication satellites.  How many other devices have be predicted in this manner?  Could these predictions have actually sparked the subsequent invention by inspiring the inventors?  Are there examples of this phenomenon at work today?

Extrapolation from current events and trends takes specialized, anticipatory thinking to predict where events and trends might lead in the future.  To communicate these thoughts takes equally unique abilities in writing.  Our talented writers can easily take your materials and develop them into effective packages to communicate your vision of the future at rates that won’t bankrupt your efforts to fulfill that future.
