It is through language and political rhetoric that credibility is conferred upon the government. When Squealer rewrites history, he does so to ensure that it reflects the Pigs ' rule as a benevolent one in favor of the animals on the farm. Squealer 's vision of truth is the only vision of truth that is able to be articulated on the farm. This means that if Squealer writes it, there has to be an acceptance, forced or not, of truth. This enhances the idea that language is power, especially in a state controlled setting where what is said has no other competition.
The symbol in this is the “communism” that is supposed to happen. The animals are supposed to get more food, work less, and have a more relaxing time. But really Napoleon has all the power and controls all the “communism” that really is not communism. The pigs and dogs are the smartest, and more favorite animals in the farm. Napoleon does not run a very communist farm, but Orwell does a great job showing how the animals are fooled by Napoleon.
But, they didn't have to be. If the the citizens were more intelligent, if the government was more diverse and if the ultimate rulers were less selfish, then this failed society would have flourished. The pigs manipulated the rest of the animals because they were dumb. If there was more diversity then the death of all of the helpful animals on the farm could have been avoided. And if the pigs would have put the wants and needs of their citizens in front of their own then things like the money spent in trade would have benefited all of the animals not only the pigs.

When the farm first started, everyone referred to each other as "Comrade". But Napolean thought he was to good for them, and he soon had the title "Leader Napolean", or "Savior of the Animals".
The animals on the farm notice a change made to the barn wall where the Seven Commandments were once written and realize that now there is a single commandment on the wall, “It ran: ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL, BUT SOME ANIMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS” (133).
