Showing satire, and a dictatorship where not humans, but animals ruled. George Orwell’s novel, Animal Farm came with ambition, tragedies, and a need for power. Although, in order for the animals to rule, they first had to overthrow the humans who ran the farm. As an effect of overthrowing them, the pigs became the new leaders of the farm. They did everything in their power to be the new leaders, no matter what it entailed.
In Animal Farm, the dilemma started when Old major dies and all of the animals in the Manor farm inspired by Old Major’s philosophy of Animalism. They plot a rebellion against Mr. Jones and the mutiny is a success. Snowball and Napoleon lead the said rebellion, and renamed the Manor Farm to Animal Farm. The pigs became the leaders because of their intelligence and Napoleon proves to be hungry in power. He also appoints Squealer to be his assistant and spoke person.
Instead of discussing matters with him, Napoleon ordered a pack of guard dogs to attack and chase him off the farm (17). This shows that Napoleon had waited for the right moment to overpower the other pig. This also shows that the guard dogs had been told a false truth to or bribed with benefits if they had gone with the plan and attacked Snowball without a second thought. In addition, Napoleon continues to change rules and make new
Animalism is the philosophy created by the pig Old Major in the book Animal Farm. The system is based on the idea that humans are oppressive and that animals should overthrow them and create their own system of government that promotes equality among all living things. Old Major dreams of a land where man has vanished and all animals are equal. Now, this sounds like a wonderful idea in theory, but when the animals eventually overthrow their human masters and take control of the farm they used to belong to their government fails and becomes a dictatorship. Which begs the question, What went wrong?
After Snowball had finished his speech about the windmill, napoleon had called for his dogs with a “high pitched whimper,” to chase Snowball off the farm. The dogs created fear in all of the animals, making it easy for Napoleon to take over the leadership of Animal Farm. The dogs were the puppies that Napoleon had taken away from their mothers and “reared privately,” implying that Napoleon had intended to control the dogs for his own bodyguards from the beginning. The dogs would also prevent rebellion against Napoleon by letting out “menacing,” growls every time an animal would question Napoleon’s authority any further. Though later in the chapter, Napoleon orders his dogs to slaughter any of the animals who had previously questioned his authority on Animal Farm.
According to the story, Napoleon is the only one candidate, he becomes a President or another truly word is the officially director. This shows us know that even there is the election; the pigs are still dominating the other animals by threaten them with the dogs so that no one braves enough to apply to be candidate as usual as they are afraid of the pigs and the partisan, the proletariat whatever dictate the other one. Furthermore, the fierce dogs, Napoleon’s partisan, are the guard who arrest the rebels by killing them in front of the other animals for frightfulness. We can see that the politics of capitalist form the oppression of the lower class or the individual class. Those who have power in system only concern to keep maintaining their power by any tools necessary.
Old Major, an old boar, teaches the animals about the Rebellion, a plan to overthrow Jones and take control. After Major passes, the animals decide to carry it out. All the animals come up with commandments, and two pigs take charge. Napoleon and Snowball fight over control of the farm; eventually, Napoleon finds way to kick Snowball out of the farm. Over the course of the book, Napoleon converts the farm into a place only benefiting the pigs, breaking the very beliefs it was started on.
At the beginning, Napoleon, take the farm with Snowball when the farmer, Mr. Jones, left. He left after the revolution of the animals that Old Major begin. When he died, they begin the rebellion. When the farm was now for the animals, the pigs took the control of it. Napoleon begin to be in competition with Snowball, because he had a lot of idea, others liked him and he was the pig that decided the most.
At the heart of a seemingly simple, unassuming novella lie political issues that occurred in Russia during and after the Russian Revolution in 1917. George Orwell’s allegorical ‘masterpiece’ as some would say, stems from his own opinions and detestation of the class divide. He shows that an egalitarian society is unachievable, when some characters that exercise power within Animal Farm use forms of both psychological warfare and physical threats in order to keep the ‘lesser’ animals under their control in order to maintain their society which supposedly follows the principles of Animalism; that ‘all animals are equal’. The pigs employ various tactics and express ways of thinking that convince the animals that they are better off than they had
Another example from the book is when Napoleon uses accusation to bring misunderstanding to animals about Snowball being Jones’s spy. “He was Jones’s secret agent all the time” (79). This explanation means Napoleon betray Snowball for his own benefit, to become the only leader. This is significant to use of accusation because Napoleon uses Snowball to get more support and to gain more power. In the book, it is shown as animals who opposes Napoleon are the real brave
