George Orwell had a difficult time acting as a police officer in Lower Burma. As demonstrated in the following excerpt from “Shooting an Elephant,” he feels frustrated by his conflicting need to maintain law and order, while believing that the Burmese had the right to be free. “All this was perplexing and upsetting. For at that time I had already made up my mind that imperialism was an evil thing and the sooner I chucked up my job and got out of it the better. Theoretically — and secretly, of — I was all for the Burmese and all against their oppressors, the British.” (Orwell 352)
