Piggy Goes to Universityis the story of a precocious young pig, and his rise to the forefront of the Anti-Piggist social justice movement. Journeying from the rural fringes of the United Union of Pigs (UUP), he arrives at the Central State University, where he learns of the terrible, dark legacy of Pig-imperialism, and that words and ideas can be just as violent as actual acts of genocide. With the help of his fellow comrades, Piggy elects to become a hero of the downtrodden and oppressed (most of whom he has never met), and to ban anyone from saying anything that might upset someone else's feelings. And yet, in creating a world of absolute kindness, he soon finds himself quaking at the mercy of his own extremist rhetoric.
