An imaginary book premise:
Animal Farm 2.0, A Nail-biting Sequel
Over a course of many years, an Americana family farm is gradually transformed into a corporate factory farm death camp, complete with an ersatz animist–fundamentalist theocracy that secretly serves the fascist corporate-person overlords. There will also be sinister, mad scientists doing recombinant genetic engineering on plants, animals and humans alike….
Too scary for young readers, you think? Don’t worry–it all comes right in the end!
Various animal and human characters will represent contemporary figures such as Billy Graham, Pat Robertson, Rush Limbo (seen on cover, left), Glen Beck, Bill Gates, Jr., Ralph Nader, Al Gore, Barack Obama, Alan Grayson, , etc., either as themselves or in animal or human character.
The story will be highly adaptable to “claymation” or Avatar-style 3-D animation.
Several of Orwell’s original Animal Farm characters (or their descendants or relatives), may show up in the tale.
One of the plot arcs will be the reverse of Nader’s “Only The Super-rich Can Save Us“.
Cover of "Only the Super-Rich Can Save Us!"
The human and animal heroes and their followers will eventually save the day by starting their own joint human/animal worker-owned co-operative farms on sustainable, eco-friendly principles including permaculture, eco-culture, and green energy.
The humans and animals will begin to practice and teach mindfulness, worker-ownership, non-violence to sentient life, egalitarian biodiversity, and the Theory of General Utility to the world around them.
Ultimately, global warming will be averted and the greatest good will be shared by all.
Happiness will abound, and every living thing will flourish, (except for incorrigible haters, who will be exiled to areas where the radiation level prevents fertility).
