The atrocious leaders of AF separated themselves from the subjects, changed the rules that they broke and lied about it, killed animals, overworked the animals and lied to the subjects about food, Snowball, humans and what they were doing.

The propaganda used by Squealer in George Orwell’s Animal Farm, as well as the frowned upon dissent and false fantasy of the farm being a utopia, prove that The Animal Farm is a dystopian society. In Animal Farm, Napoleon uses a persuasive pig, Squealer, to act like propaganda and transmit information around the farm to keep the working animals distracted. One of Squealer’s main jobs on the farm was to persuade the farm animals that when the pigs broke the law, the reason was always for the betterment of the farm. Orwell writes, “‘It was absolutely necessary’, he said, ‘that the pigs, who were the brains of the farm, should have a quiet place to work in’” (Orwell 66). Squealer convinces everyone that Napoleon’s actions are ethical, even though Napoleon’s actions are almost always unfair and unjust.
