The animals’ desire to overthrow a man and gain freedom lead by the opinion that "Man is the only real enemy we have. Remove Man from the scene, and the root cause of hunger and overwork is abolished for ever. Man is the only creature that consumes without producing." (Orwell 1945:2) tricked them into idealistic concept of equality, believed in due to the ignorance of many of the farm inhabitants. Orwell satirizes the system of communism built on the belief that the autocracy is necessary until the superior beings take over the control, in this case the pigs.
In the end, Napoleon even changed the name back to its original name, Manor farm. “... To the prosperity of The Manor Farm!” (page 140). So yes, everything turned out horribly in this book, except for Napoleon and the other fat pigs. The animals work more than ever, on less food, and worse conditions and they still work for Napoleon. This is
Boxer was the first animal to wake up and the last animal to sleep. He worked day and night restlessly under the guidance of Napoleon. He was the greatest supporter of animal farm and Animalism, the ideology that runs the animal farm. However, he had to sacrifice his own animal right for the sake of animal farm and the better life of all of us. Also, he was loyal retainer of Napoleon.
Therefore, as time goes on, he is changing drastically because he “rarely appeared in public, but spent all his time in the farmhouse, which was guarded at each door by fierce-looking dogs. When he did emerge, it was in a ceremonial manner, with an escort of six dogs who closely surrounded him and growled if anyone came too near. Frequently he did not even appear on Sunday mornings, but issued his orders through one of the other pigs, usually Squealer” (24). This shows that he is more like the old farm, Mr. Johns, because he is making the animals do more work than himself. Moreover, this shows that he is
In the novel, Animal Farm, the pigs are substandard examples of good leaders because they are self-serving hypocrites. This is an allegorical story to what happened in the Russian Revolution. Napoleon, the main leader of the farm, represents Stalin, the leader of Russia in the revolution. They were both corrupt leaders that manipulated their own people. For example, Napoleon brainwash the animals into thinking he is always right.
How Does Napoleon Stay In Power? Like the Russians wanted to overthrow Stalin, the animals wanted to overthrow Jones. In the book Animal Farm, Napoleon the pig wanted to gain power over the farm he lived on, Manor Farm. But, the farm was controlled by the malicious Mr. Jones. So to gain control, he and his fellow animals overthrew him and his farm.
Animal Farm by George Orwell is a novel that represents the flaws in equality. Orwell expresses that no matter the distances that people travel, equality amongst all people will never be achieved. The Russian Revolution was caused by Karl Marx’s ideas about equality in Russia. Karl Marx is portrayed through Old Major in Animal Farm. Once the people won the Russian Revolution they went forward with Marx’s ideas and entitled it Communism.
In a essence Napoleon the pig becomes the persona of “Someone to believe in,” for the animals. After Snowball was chased out, Napoleon most importantly and the pigs become the guidance for the animals lives. “Napoleon is always right”(Orwell 70), said by Boxer the horse, expresses his strong belief in his intelligence and guidance. The more and more, the story progresses, the more religion takes the role of keeping the animals organized and in harmony of the pig’s leadership and system. Although, “The Seven Commandments” start to change, the animals chose to keep following them.
Boxer often says: “Napoleon is always right!” (48). Though the innocent animals are manipulated by their government, they dispel their own doubts, as it is easier to just believe what they are told than to try and understand Squealer’s random facts and figures. Napoleon, the unfair leader, shares Joseph Stalin’s corrupted character and leadership techniques. This clever pig even trained dogs to stand as his police force, much like Stalin’s Secret
The animals are scared of Jones because he was not feeding them so they really don’t want him to come back. That is how Napoleon cast fear over the animals so he can stay in power. When Napoleon from Orwell's Animal Farm uses ideology, propaganda, and fear, he will stay in control for a very long time.
