BIO

It is easy to lament the bad luck that distributed Norway rats and the AIDS virus around the world and the capricious stupidity that brought starlings. However, are we hypocrites for condemning these species and planting a cosmopolitan array of vegetables in our gardens? Why do some government agriculture and health agencies spend millions of dollars on quarantines to keep out exotic pests, while some fish and game agencies spend millions raising and releasing game fish and birds in places outside their native range? Of course, the answers to these questions come down to values and to the truth of the well known aphorism from George Orwell’s Animal Farm: “All animals are created equal, but some animals are created more equal than others.”

7) How would you respond to Orwell’s quote, especially with regard to the actions taken by the various people mentioned in the above paragraph?
