have been breeding up sturdy calves? Every drop of it has gone down the throats of our enemies.

Rhetorical Question Old Majors Speech

Consists of words with strongly positive or negative connotations intended to influence a readers or listener's attitude. Loaded Language Now, comrades, what is the nature of this life of ours? Let

us face it, our lives are miserable, laborious and short. We are born, we are given just so much food as will keep the breath in our bodies, and those of us who are capable of it are forced to work to the last atom of our strength; and the very instant that our usefulness has come to an end we are slaughtered with hideous cruelty. No animal in England knows the meaning of happiness or leisure after he is a year old. No animal in England is free. The life of an animal is misery and slavery: that is the plain truth.
