The process behind new given power

The animals of a farm are chasing away the human landlords and taking over the farm. All animals shall be treated equally from now on.

But the pigs feel smarter than the other animals and therefore they claim to be the leaders. Even though all animals are treated equally, the pigs are treated "more equally".

Orwell shows in this book the dynamics when a group is given power.

What celebrated writers can teach us

George Orwell thought a good sentence means trimming as many words as possible, Virginia Woolf found power in verbs, and Baldwin desired 'a sentence as clean as a bone.'

We can learn from celebrated writers that a good sentence is plain, undecorated and visible. It gets its power from the tension between the ease of its phrasing and the surprise of its thought. Each added word reduces alternatives and narrows the reader's expectations. But up to the last word, the writer can throw a curveball.

Hill was a charlatan

Napoleon Hill was said to be an advisor to two presidents: Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
In fact, there’s no evidence whatsoever outside of Hill’s own writings that Hill met President Wilson or President Roosevelt, let alone acted as a trusted advisor to both.
