    I was having an issue with a school principal over student safety. I wanted them safe.

    At some point, I said that quote. "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others." And she said "Exactly!"

    And fortunately, the police didn't agree with her, and the politician agreed with the police. And safety for all. :)

    I know there are many other quotes out of the book, but really, is there any that more captures it than this one? It would easily be my choice. William F. Buckley called Orwell, "Every liberal's favorite conservative, and every conservative's favorite liberal."
