When we use the term pig, for example, we are referring to the people who systematically violate the peoples' constitutional rights- whether they be monopoly capitalists or police.

One evening in October, when I was one-third sober, An'taking home a'load' with manly pride; My poor feet began to stutter, so I lay down in the gutter, And a pig came up an' lay down by my side.

It is impossible to teach a captured wolf, and impossible to teach a pig to walk along a road.
A bear is not subservient to a dog, a pig in an orchard is not a garden, a wolf is not a shepherd of sheep; a person who is stupid and deaf is a poor judge.
