Squealer used logos to convince the animals that Napoleon is a hero and Snowball is the enemy. As the animals were gathered together listening to Squealer, Squealer said “It has all been proved by documents which he left behind him and which we have just discovered” (56). These documents are presented as proof of Snowball’s working with Farmer Jones to undermine Animal Farm. The animals believe Squealer because most of them are unable to read and since the pigs can read, the animals believe the pigs must be correct in saying that Snowball is working with Jones. Squealer used the rhetorical strategy of rewriting history to convince the animals that Napoleon is a hero
But in the end the pigs and humans not only look alike but, also sound alike. Napoleon uses three different tactics to seize and control, but also maintain the farm those tactics are propaganda, loyalty of the farm, and fear. Napoleon uses propaganda by allowing Squealer to talk to
They manipulate the animals that all they do is for the good of the farm, when in reality, it is only for the good of themselves. In this novel, propaganda is presented through the character Squealer, who is Napoleon’s trusty companion. Squealer is the designated speaker for Napoleon, and he is easily able to persuade the other animals that Napoleon, along with the other pigs, are working for the good of everyone else. He mainly uses the method of “plain folks” in order to convince the other animals that the pigs are working just as hard as they are. The truth is, while Squealer is convincing everyone of Napoleon’s greatness and how great of a leader he is,
In Animal Farm the first example of social control is when the work of teaching and organizing the others fell naturally upon the pigs, who were generally recognized as being the cleverest of the animals. The second example is when the animals came up with the Seven Commandments to maintain order within their society. Lastly, the third example is when the pigs did not actually work, but directed and supervised the others.
After Old Major dies, the pigs a point themselves as the leaders, as pigs are “recognized as being the cleverest of the animals”. At the start of their reign they worked honestly to serve the animals and towards a common cause; the revolution. They continue the work that Old Major started. However, as they grow more corrupt they begin to use intelligence and education to oppress the other animals. Their greed overcomes their honesty and they use their superior intellect to fool and manipulate the other animals.
Since the pigs were in control they wanted to benefit from it,, like when they changed “All animals are equal” to “All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.” They changed it because they wanted to do stuff that wasn’t allowed. The dogs represented the military. Napoleon took the dogs when they were puppies and trained them to be guard dogs, and to keep control over the animals using violence and fear. The pigs represent the government by controlling the military and debating over what was going to be done and who was going to be in charge. George Orwell, the author of Animal Farm was talking about government, laws and politics using animals.
This passage examined emanates from Squealer’s verbalization in which you visually perceive him establish his astuteness over all the animals. Along with manipulation, he confounds his peers' through intricate words. When the animals repine to Squealer, he simply digresses or explicates the matter in a way that others wouldn’t understand. Squealer utilizes the word “Comrades,” to engender ascendancy, and acquire his fellow animals attention when he commenced distributing his message. The authoritative approach and advanced lexicon amalgamate to engender a theme of ethos.
2. Although the initial prosperity of Animal Farm is quickly declining, Squealer distracts the animals with a skip in his step and a shrill voice, telling the animals that their home is better than ever. The pig conceals the true state of the farm, and the animals believe that Napoleon is to be credited for its false success. C. Throughout the novel, Squealer uses the animals’ fear of Mr. Jones and fraudulent, positive figures in order to rally support for Napoleon and gain power for the pigs. IV.
In the novel, “Animal Farm, there are different characteristics of the animals as they pertain to life, war and the novel by using different propaganda techniques where were used during the Russian Revolution and the Holocaust. Animal farm was about the animals taking over the farm because they thought they were being mistreated. They wanted to follow Old Major’s Dream of being free and equal. The animals actually thought they should over throw the farmer in order to get justice. This story really was interesting to me because it related to the Holocaust, and different wars.
What with the dictatorship of the pigs as well as a the mistreatment of the other animals, it is clear that Animal Farm is something much more than a story about livestock. “Napoleon becomes better and better at satisfying his own goals and needs and in duping the other animals into believing that he is doing it all for them. Each new project that takes all their energy keeps them from questioning whether their lives are truly improved. Napoleon is a master of propaganda, as was Stalin.” As a result of not only lying to the animals and distracting them with new projects that drain them emotionally and physically, but feeding them endless propaganda lead the animals to follow Napoleon and not acknowledge the absence of liberty that they are experiencing. “Squealer is so persuasive that he can cleverly turn ideas and thoughts inside out until the other animals are no longer sure of what is right or even what has happened.” Squealer is Napoleon’s mouthpiece.
