George Orwell call it a fairy tale, and it is, in a way, written in that style - but it is a political satire, and the style and simplicity of the story make it all the more powerful. Knowing who it was written about(Stalin, Trotsky, and the whole system) is not necessary to understand the book; understanding that this is a description of a political system is. We are responsible for what happens in our society - we are the society. And our actions - and, more often, inaction - have an effect.
