Mea Maxima Milo Cum Culpa.
Animal Farm was an allegory about how even when the farmer was absent, the animals maintained the status quo despite them having a chance of living collectively.

Everybody does as they are told despite having the free will to make independent systems.

1984 is s blueprint for what happens in a totalitarian state.
