    Talking Animal Farm- The government systems mentioned.

    Hello, I'm reading Animal Farm for English 10 honors and am wondering what government system is being highlighted from this passage. This isn't apart of an assignment I was just hoping to memorize any content that could prove to be relevant to the story and class. I'm hoping some sort of answer can be derived from the context clues included.

    "Never listen when they tell you that Man and the animals have a common interest, that the prosperity of the one is the prosperity of the others."

    We're studying democracy, socialism, communism, capitalism, tsarism autocracy, republic, and totalitarianism. My objective is to use this quote as an example of one of these forms of government. I see aspects of a couple forms in this quote but am wanting an answer that leans towards one form only.

    It is not an "example of a form of government." It is a criticism of the naive/ hypocritical belief that different classes all have the same interests. In Orwell's novel/fable he puts it into the mouth of a character who is intended to sound like a socialist.

    Or more specifically a Marxian socialist as it is quite possible to have different philosophical motivations for espousing different forms of socialism
