How do the Seven Commandments represent a utopian philosophy? How do they suggest that the animals will run the farm in a more equitable fashion?

The Seven Commandments represent Communism in its theoretical, idealized form. In writing, the Seven Commandments look fair and hold true to Major’s stipulation that the animals not emulate humans. Though the animals intend to live by the Seven Commandments “for ever after,” we will learn quickly that the tenets of Animalism do not translate perfectly into reality, especially not with the seeds of elitism already planted among the pigs. THe commandmentes are easily manipulated and perverted to give a selct few power over other animals.
