In this tragic novel. The power of love and comfort outweighs all moral principles and the willingness of the animals to follow blindly even when those they follow are corrupt. Napoleon, Squealer, the pigs and the dogs exert power and the other animals such as Boxer, Clover, Benjamin, Muriel, and the sheep are willing to follow blindly. The pigs had decided that the apples and the milk will be set aside for them. As the pigs were the brainworkers of the farm.
Animal Farm CARTT Everyone has needs and wants. As power and greed come into play, people put their wants over the needs of others. They are so blinded by their desires that they fail to recognize if others’ necessities are met. In the novella Animal Farm, by George Orwell the more powerful and educated pigs take advantage of the inferior, weaker animals on the farm; overworking and manipulating them. As the Animal Farm rebellion grows more successful, the pigs and especially Napoleon, who takes the role of leader, begins to realize that he could exploit the rest of the animals for the pigs’ wants.
Napoleon is taking the easy way out by being lazy and having everything handed to him from his peers which was promised to never happen before the revolt. The animals have forgotten their purpose, and destiny already they are too involved in getting brainwashed by Napoleon. This is an example of Orwell’s philosophy because slowly as time progress Napoleon is getting more power and becoming the new tyrant to replace jones but still act similar to him. As the story progress further Napoleon has most to all power while the animals have little to none. However, the other animals are starting to realize how controlled they are and it feels just as if Jones is still there.
First, they’ve experienced violence under the tyranny of their leaders. It is said that the Animals where being executed by Napeleon for those who will be against his will. Whereas in Billy Budd, members in the cruise are being punished extremely because people are abiding the rules. This implicates that the leaders of the said book are being abusive to their power and violent to his constituents. In addition, the story also shows the naiveté of Billy Budd and Boxer in Animal farm believing that their leaders are always right.
In Animal Farm Napoleon and Snowball were the original leaders of the farm but after Snowball disagrees with Napoleon, he is immediately sent away and portrayed as an awful traitor who had been scheming a plan the whole time. This kind of unstable government is not a place that I would want to live in. The way he treated the other animals and shut down any suspicions of his actual plan was cruel and abusive of his power. Another reason I would not like to live in a utopia like the one in Animal Farm is that it seems like it would be very aggravating to see other animals say they support him one-hundred percent and being overall disappointed in my surroundings. While yes I would be an animal if I lived in this utopia I would probably be just as clueless as the other animals on the farm.
Government by coalition often fails or one member will find a way to gain an advantage. “The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which” (139). It is shown how the pigs start out with Old Major's vision, but are exactly like the people (oppressive) by the end of the book. The pigs become like the humans by the end of the novel. Throughout the novel they have revealed similar traits; they want to seize power and maintain control over all the other animals.
He also think that “Every animals are equal, but some are more equal then others.” And it’s getting worse when he selled boxer to a slaughterer to have money for buying more alcohol, even if all of the barley is already reserve to the pigs. He begin to act like a human, meet them, smoke, drink alcohol and wear clothes. To show that all of the goal of the first rebellion never continue that way, they change the song Beast of England and the name of the farm for “Manor farm”. Napoleon didn’t do what the revolution had wanted. The animals follow him, respect him even if they didn’t have to.
I also wanted to show that this book models a communist environment. The animals work hard for all, but their work is only enjoyed for the benefits of a few. All the money, rewards, and food go to the top, and the animals are left with just scraps. Once you control your people, you can do anything you want, and that is what Napoleon did. He manipulated the animals into thinking that his ways were best, and that they were living luxurious lives.
He makes his entrance when he justifies the pigs for hoarding food. He works to develop Animalism. He is selfish and twists reality to suit his interests and those of Napoleon. Squealer is the propaganda machine of Animal Farm. Snowball is an active quick-witted, charismatic inventive pig.
You can see that snowball is based on Leon Trotsky because he is smart, passionate, fluent, and less subtle and devious than Napoleon. Snowball seems to win the loyalty of the other animals and build his power. Snowball is chased off of the farm by napoleon’s dogs which represents the KGB and Napoleon covers it up by saying that he left. Snowball also tries to build a windmill which represents industrialisation and was banished from the farm, this relates to how Leon trotsky tried to industrialise Russia and was banished from
