The late English novelist George Orwell once said that when we set out to create Utopia, we end up creating, ironically, “a world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself.”

You read this in Orwell’s famous novel Animal Farm, where the very liberators of oppression end up becoming the oppressors.
