It is also seen as he’s being described as not the animal with the most brains on the farm but is known to contribute on tasks involving hard work which allow the others to sort of look up to him with some kind of power.Another reason to why he is respected on the farm is because he is always honest and very loyal to his word. The last trait Boxer has is being an excellent idol by, “Squealer made excellent speeches on the joy . . . ,but the other animals found more inspiration in Boxer’s strength and his never failing cry of “I will work harder!”” (53).
For instance “For once Benjamin consented to break his rule, and he read out to [Clover] what was written on the wall” (7, 5-6). From this passage, you can see how Boxer’s death changed Benjamin. He now learned the consequences of doing nothing, therefore he is feeling regretful that he did not voice his perception earlier. Furthermore, Benjamin knows that Clover is also as hard-working as Boxer, thus he wants to help her out incase the same thing that happened with Boxer will happen to her too. To conclude, because Benjamin did not take actions, he is also unknowingly contribute to the pig’s take over even when he’s fully aware of what they are doing to the
Only Clover and Benjamin, Boxer’s closest friends knew about his injury as he didn’t want the other animals to think that he had gotten weak. Boxer’s mottos “Napoleon is always right” and “I will work harder” proves his dedication to the farm. He does not want to disappoint the animals, primarily Napoleon. Finally, as the story comes to an end, Boxer gets sold by the pigs. A van from the knackers comes to take Boxer away two days after his lung collapses.
Benny has been a fatherly figure to her ever since, but he seems to still treat her as an adolescent. Joon is in no condition to be making life altering choices; although, she should be allowed to make small choices in order to feel normal. Benny doesn’t even trust Joon enough to leave her alone at home, “She is going to be alone every day … I’m not leaving her alone at night too.” The lack of trust that Benny has in Joon causes her to not trust herself either. She views herself as an unwanted human being that everyone seems to run away from. The only people Joon has known in her life are her brother and all the housekeepers he has hired to take care of her.
Martin Luther King Jr. said, “Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.” Luther’s statement about ignorance being dangerous is a recurring idea in Animal Farm, written by George Orwell. In this allegorical story, Orwell uses the animals of Manor Farm to represent the corrupted leaders of the Russian Revolution, as well as the people who stood by and let it happen. Through his characters, Orwell attempts to expose the seriousness of the dangers presented by Stalin and other totalitarian leaders at the time and the need for people to think for themselves and oppose the tyranny. George Orwell uses Napoleon to take advantage of the other animal’s hardworking, albeit ignorant and naive attitudes to gain power and provoke fear and manipulate the farm animals, proving that, without followers, leaders have no power. In Animal Farm, Napoleon takes advantage of Boxer’s loyalty in order to motivate the animals to work more, and harder.
Even though it is good that Boxer is devoted to the farm, he sometimes can go over the limit, " I have no wish to take life, not even human life, repeated Boxer, and his eyes were full of tears." (p.14) this shows that Boxer cares about his mistakes and is faithful even towards the enemy. Furthermore, this also illustrates that Boxer is devoted to the farm but he believes that he went overboard. Boxer likes to stick with what he has for instance, "His two slogans 'I will work harder' and 'Napoleon is always right' seemed to him a sufficient answer to all his problems." (p.20) the shows that even though he questioned Napolion about snowball destroying the windmill, he closed his mouth and said "Napoleon is always right."
In George Orwell’s allegorical novel Animal Farm, the sneaky and mischievous actions of the government leave the inhabitants of the farm helpless and completely controlled. This novel serves as a warning to people everywhere to challenge authority and never abandon independent thought. Benjamin hides his knowledge of the pigs schemes from the other animals to avoid conflict, proving that mature members of a society may deceive others to remain true to personal philosophy of uninvolvement, if only to solidify to everyone that they are invariably right. Benjamin retains the information he posses in order to prove a point that all systems of government come and go, and will never affect his life. Even when the other animals are curious as to the meaning of confusing government actions, Benjamin would “say nothing” in order to uphold his personal vendetta (Orwell 109).
This is due to believing that educated leaders are always right. This is very obvious in Animal farm as Napoleon, used Squealer, the master of manipulation as his mouthpiece to manoeuvre the farm animals. Snowball was blamed by Napoleon for every disaster happening in Animal Farm, from the destruction of the windmill to a broken window. The animals buy it as well since they could not read or write. For an example, Boxer always says ‘Comrade Napoleon is always right’ even when he is not.
Boxer epitomizes all of the best qualities of the exploited working classes: dedication, loyalty, and a huge capacity for labor. He also, however, suffers from what Orwell saw as the working class’s major weaknesses: a naïve trust in the good intentions of the intelligent and an inability to recognize even the most flagrant forms of political corruption. Exploited by the pigs as much or more than he had been by Mr. Jones, Boxer represents all of the invisible labor that undergirds the political drama being carried out by the elites. Boxer’s death dramatically illustrates the extent of the pigs’ betrayal. He serves as the force that holds Animal Farm together.
While yes I would be an animal if I lived in this utopia I would probably be just as clueless as the other animals on the farm. In Animal Farm Napoleon changes the rules slightly each time he breaks them to comply with what he did. This is another reason I am against utopias. In “Harrison Bergeron” there is a leader who is in charge of all of the handicaps, affectively called the handicapper general. The plot of the story is that Harrison, who is exceptionally stronger, smarter, and more handsome than everybody else,
