Although both brought benefits to the farm, the animals lived happier at first. The farm had filled with positive energy, everyone encouraged each other. Greatly different from Snowball’s compassion, Napoleon’s heart was only filled with power and his own selfish desire. Even if the farm became richer, everyone would like freedom instead of living in fear of Napoleon. For the sake of the animal’s livelihood, Snowball should take the place of Napoleon and stay in the Animal Farm to govern the animals.
Napoleon’s initial desire to rule the Farm grows into a monstrous greed for power which is what brings destruction to the corrupted society of Animal Farm. His foolish pursuit to obtain more increasingly becomes destructive just as the capacity does to increase. The greed has taken over him and tempts him to lie in order to obtain everything he desires. He drives Snowball out of power to keep the power all to himself, separates himself from the commoners to officialise his high status within the Animal Farm, kills Boxer to acquire money for whiskey, and adapts human idiosyncrasies in order to prove that Napoleon and the pigs are more superior and can control the commoners to obtain anything that they
In the book Animal Farm, there are two main “enemies” to the common animals. These two enemies, are Farmer Jones and the pig known as Napoleon. Each of these entities have their own pros and cons, and each one rules over the animals in their own way. Some may argue that Farmer Jones was a better owner, and Napoleon was bad, or vice versa. As stated before, each had their own unique way of ruling the animals and different popularity among the animals.
Both Napoleon and Snowball have distinct intentions when in front of the other animals. Snowball behaves in a way in which is beneficial towards the community of animal farm. Furthermore, during the meeting in the big barn, Snowball was full of “plans for innovations”, in an altruistic tone conveying his yearning to ameliorate animal living standards. Snowball demonstrates diligence to in order to improve the Farm’s infrastructure. Moreover, Snowball busied himself with organising the other animals into what he called “Animal Committees”, a refined visual image that consists of reading and writing classes to boost animal education in the farm.
“‘...Bravery isn’t enough’, said Squealer, ‘Loyalty and obedience are more important, and as of the Battle of Cowshed, I believe the time will come when we shall find his part in it much exaggerated.’” This quote describes how Napoleon uses his position to change the opinions of the animals by belittling Snowball. Another way he uses propaganda to stay in control is when he makes up various medals and awards and gives himself all of them. Although the animals view Napoleon as their savior, he is a ruthless ruler. He uses propaganda, fear, and the principles of Animalism to keep a tight grip on the farm. He uses propaganda to influence the animal’s opinions.
Besides their differences, we can say that both Napoleon and Snowball wanted the rebellion to happen and supported the idea of Animalism and, consequently, the expurgation of humans from the power. Napoleon and Snowball have different personalities and. In chapter 2, Napoleon is described as being a fierce-looking Berkshire boar, not much of a talker, but with a reputation for getting his own way. However, Snowball was a more vivacious pig than Napoleon, quicker in speech and more inventive. We can notice that, in the first lines of chapters two, there is already a contrast between the two pigs.
Animal Farm: How Napoleon Stayed In Charge Having superiority over something is not easy. If put in the wrong hands, having superiority could destroy something as big as a country. In the story Animal Farm by: George Orwell a pig named Napoleon wanted to establish superiority over Manor Farm, but farmer Jones was in charge of the farm. So, Napoleon and the other animals held a rebellion against farmer Jones and the other humans then the animals kicked the humans off the farm and Napoleon slowly turns into a dictator over the farm. Napoleon stayed in charge of the farm by using fear, propaganda, and Animalism.
Napoleon who was in control in Animal farm is similar to Joseph Stalin. One similarity between Napoleon and Stalin is they would eliminate anyone who would disagree with them or rebel against their rules. In the book Animal Farm Napoleon gets rid of Snowball because they didn't agree on what to do for the farm and he was worried all the animals would side with Snowballs ideas not Napoleons. In the book it states, “They dashed straight for Snowball, who only sprang from his place just in time to escape their snapping jaws,” (Orwell 53). This shows that napoleon felt threatened by Snowball and was worried he would take over the farm so he used his dogs to try to kill Snowball so Napoleon could have no choice but to rule the farm.
In George Orwell’s 1945 novel Animal Farm a pig named Napoleon uses many methods like propaganda to rise to power. After overthrowing Jones, the owner of Manor Farm, the two prominent leaders on Animal Farm are Snowball and Napoleon but the latter decides to chase Snowball off the farm. He then makes himself the leader of Animal Farm and starts to downplay situations, use scapegoats, and use fear to control the animals of Animal Farm. These tactics keep Napoleon in control and the animals realize too late that their pig rulers have become as bad as the humans as the novel ends. In Animal Farm Napoleon uses scapegoats, fear mongers, and downplays to redirect any blame that could possibly harm his reputation as a good leader of Animal Farm and to keep the animals under his control.
In the book Animal Farm, the animals live and act like people in today's society. Napoleon was the only berkshire boar in the book Animal Farm he played a big role. He was a smart pig that knew almost how to play the game and get his way. Napoleon took nine cute little puppies from their parents and knew one on the farm knew what the reason was for. Until one day the nine grown mean looking dogs showed up at the farm and chased Snowball off the farm.
