The basic principles of Animalism are outlined in the seven commandments.

1. Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy.

2. Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings, is a friend.

3. No animal shall wear clothes.

4. No animal shall sleep in a bed.

5. No animal shall drink alcohol.

6. No animal shall kill any other animal.

7. All animals are equal.

These commandments were more like an animal constitution or declaration of independence. They were meant to preserve animal equality and a socialist utopia. Unfortunately Napoleon quickly perverts them to serve his own needs.
