This quote by Pilkington addresses the fact that the line drawn between humans and animals is virtually nonexistent. In context, Pilkington is verbally exposing that both humans and animals having a working class, thus, both systems are based upon a class system. The animals did not gain equality in the rebellion, they just created more of the same within their own animal government.
