Later in the text the pigs find a children’s book which they teach themselves to read and write from. However when they are finished with the book they destroy it therefore stopping any chance of the other animals being of equal intellect. After the pigs have ensured that they will remain the smartest they begin to use their academic advantage to manipulate the other animals. With their new found skills along with their leadership positions, the pigs opt out of physical work and instead tend to the organisation and directing of Manor Farm. This opens up many doors of opportunity for the pigs but also allows them to close as many of these doors as they please.
Effects of Communism in Animal Farm It is commonly believed that communism will lead to equality and happiness for all; Orwell proves that this is not always the case. The hope for equality in Animal Farm is not accomplished because the pigs live a better life than the other animals. Also, The animals other than the pigs are forced to work harder then they had when Mr. Jones ran the farm. Finally, the animals other than Napoleon cannot share their own opinions.
While he does not play a major role in the fairy tale, he does play an important role in controlling the rebellious actions that they animals may have under the control of Napoleon. His ideas are used to make the animals believe that all their work will not be for nothing and that even after they die they will be rewarded with the paradise that is Sugarcandy Mountain. The pigs write his ideas off and persuade the animals of the farm not to listen to him. Although, later in the story, once Napoleon is in power, the pigs seem to change their attitude towards Moses’ ideas. After Moses returns to the farm, the author states, “they all declared contemptuously that his stories about Sugarcandy Mountain were lies, and yet they allowed him to remain on the farm, not working, with an allowance of a gill of beer a day” (Orwell 118).
The story Animal farm has a more realistic, working government than Anthem. In Animal farm, the pigs keep hold of their power by using fear. Those who try to rebel are executed, and those who step out of line are threatened by Napoleon's dogs. This is a realistic portrayal of how some governments keep ahold of their power.
Napoleon ruled animal farm harshly and overworked the animals. Orwell described, “This work was strictly voluntary, but any animal who absented himself from it would have his rations reduced by half” (Orwell 59). The animal’s are given a choice in the sense that if they wanted to, they could have Sundays off. However, the brutal consequences the animals would face if they did not work forced the animals to listen to the pigs.
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.
The satire present here is that the altering of the ten commandments effectively portray how the absurd the concept is. There is no way that animals could become, “more equal” than others. In the beginning of the novel, Old Major expressed that the animals shall overcome their oppressors, but the pigs become the oppressors. Through their chants and the ten commandments, the citizens are brainwashed to believe that everything is just and fair because when the commandments and chants were first written or said, everyone was in agreement, and believed it was fair. The pigs start to alter the propaganda, and the animals still believe that it is fair, when in reality it is not.
For example, before the dogs first had a major role in the story by chasing Snowball away, none of the animals ever felt too troubled or scared about any resolutions they passed. Now, since Napoleon has his own intelligence combined with the strength of the dogs, he can force the animals to do anything− no matter how awful they might think it is, since they no longer have enough power against him. One specific event that would happen as a result of this would be that Snowball would not have gotten chased out of the farm. Unlike Napoleon, he seemed to actually care about Old Major’s ideas, and he truly wanted Animal Farm to prosper. This would have meant that the pigs would not have become like men, so humans could either have forgotten about Animal Farm, or they might have been able to successfully recapture it from the animals, so they would have at least had another chance at freedom if the corrupt pigs had not gained so much of the strength that the moral animals lost.
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 his novella “Animal Farm,” George Orwell displays an example of a society managed by animals. The author documents the non-sustainable development that he encountered in Russia during the Russian revolution, and delivers it through the events that transpire in the farm. Sustainable development is when the country meets its present needs without interfering with the future generations’ ability to meets their own needs. When evaluating a society’s developmental status, several social, political, economic and environmental aspects must be taken into consideration. Examples on such indicators include natural resources, education, healthcare, social justice, trade, employment and infrastructure.
In my opinion, I found ag-gag law is inhumane to farm animals. It is also a set back and disgraceful for journalist. Farm animals deserve the right that slaughterhouses applies. Slaughterhouse has advance technology to kill animal. Animals only spend a minutes before being dispatched.
