  1. The main elements of Napoleon's character.

    Frederick is a "tough, shrewd man" always involved in lawsuits and driving hard bargains. His greed and dishonesty are seen most clearly in the way he cheats Napoleon over the timber. He then violently and unlawfully invades Animal Farm and destroys the windmill.

  2. Animal Farm.

    In his depiction of the animals' response to Mr. Frederick's gratuitous destruction of the great windmill, Orwell aptly conveys the tremendous sense of betrayal and feelings of anger that Russians felt toward Germany during and after World War II. The pigs, echoing another tactic of the victorious governments after World War II, use the heroism of individuals from the lower classes to reinforce the patriotism of the demoralized survivors.

  1. Ban hunting!

    Although the animal does not suffer as much as if it was being hunted, mistakes can be made even if you are a highly professional marksman, leaving a deer crippled or a strong stag dead. I think wolves are the answer to areas with large deer populations.

  2. Deer - Britain's wonderful wildlife, should they be hunted?

    The opposite is true. Deer- being herbivorous- form large groups when they are aware of predators. Packs of dogs pose the only obvious threat, this is the principle cause of large groups of the animal and therefore the source of major crop losses.
