"Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. Yet he is lord of all the animals. He sets them to work, he gives back to them the bare minimum that will prevent them from starving, and the rest he keeps for himself. Our labour tills the soil, and yet there is not one of us that owns more than his bare skin."—Old Major (a pig) from George Orwell's book Animal Farm

In the book Animal Farm, the animals on the farm revolt and form a new government. With which statement would the speaker most likely agree?

A) Animals should be given a share based on the work they do. The farm should be socialist.

B) A wise pig should make all the decisions on the farm. The farm should be an autocracy.

C) Every animal should have the right to vote. The farm should be a democracy.

D) Man should decide how to distribute things. The farm should be an oligarchy.

I think the answer is A.
