Squealer, temporarily stunned, was sprawling beside it, and near at hand there lay a lantern, a paint-brush, and an overturned pot of white paint” (Orwell pg. 108).

Propaganda also played a huge role in sustaining and obtaining the pig's dictatorial government. It is used all the time to make the animals believe that life is better on Animal Farm.
Suppose you hear of a case where a human is torturing their dog or cat; you are very displeased and upset by this because you too have a dog and/or cat that you love dearly.

Most people would say it bothers them more to hear of a puppy being torched than to hear of a pig being torched; but why is this?
