English II - Animal Farm

posted by .

My assignment is to find the human vice that each of the seven commandments intended to prevent in the novel, Animal Farm.

First, I do not know what human vice the following two are supposed to prevent:
Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy.
Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings, is a friend.

Here are the others and my human vices are in the parentheses.
No animal shall wear clothes. (Materialism & Self Pride)
No animal shall sleep in a bed. (Slothfulness)
No animal shall drink alcohol. (Alcoholism)
No animal shall kill any other animal. (Murder)
All animals are equal. (Prejudice)

Could you please check these and give me feedback? Thanks. :)
