This is suggesting that it was needed to free Russia from Nicholas’s power, even though he had already abdicated. Although it is understood that the purpose of killing his family was to ensure an end to the Romanov reign, these murders were unjust because the entire family along with their help was killed as well. Nicholas II was a poor government figure for Russia, however death was the incorrect punishment. An alternative plan would have been to imprison the family to prevent the Tsar’s children taking over power rather than killing them. The punishment was unjust for the Czar and his
Animal Farm by George Orwell is a satire about the Russian Revolution. Characters and events in the novel all are parallel to the Russian Revolution. Orwell knows of the Russian Revolution and the harm it caused and he does not approve of it, he shows this by constantly ridiculing the main characters who portray real life people. The struggle for power between Snowball and Napoleon portray the struggle between Trotsky and Stalin. Orwell shows throughout the novel that he does not approve of the Russian Revolution and the harmful things that it caused, this shows that he is not resigned as a writer as he writes about major issues in his work.
Napoleon bands the song Beasts of England, he drives Snowball out of the farm, and opposes Boxer by sending him to a glue factory. Napoleon is extremely aware of his position as a leader, and he is not willing to surrender it. Though Napoleon and Jones have differences as their viewing of leadership, they are similar tyrants when it comes to how they treat the residents of the farm. Both leaders overworked the animals, rarely fed them, and never rewarded them with the fruit of their
This not only muffled the voices of the people and robbed the freedom they graciously fought the monarchy for, but also encrypted fear and distrust in the French government. Robespierre had begun to execute leaders around the country in July 26, 1794 after a fear emitting speech announcing his paranoia of conspiring supporters. After this speech, anti-revolutionists and pro revolutionists alike were filled to the brink with panic. The Reign of Terror was not justified because it is not right to have an entire country in distress and constantly fearing the government that was put in place to be moral and
The Russian revolution technically consisted of two revolutions, the so called “January revolution” and the “October revolution”, that both took place in 1917. They came to change Russia not only politically but socially as well. The ruler of Russia, tsar Nicholaj II, was an autocratic dictator who did not want anyone else to rule. He kept poor track of his country and lived in solitude far away from the people. When Russia entered WWI it became clear to everyone just how poorly he ruled his country.
They experienced vigorous labor in dangerous conditions for little pay and were without food and money countless times. The Russians did not hate the Tsar at first as they blamed their troubles on the government, however an event called Bloody Sunday changed their minds. Citizens began to protest outside of Tsar’s palace where many were shot and killed by soldiers. This turned them against the man they once trusted. World War I also occurred during Tsar’s reign and ultimately killed many unskilled and unequipped Russian soldiers.
Imagine being on a farm where animals take over. All humans have fled from the farm, while the animals have a rebellion against them. They use the phrase, “Four legs good, two legs bad” and whoever had grasped this phrase would be safe from human influences.

In Syria, students planned protests and eventually took to the streets. Then, “[the] Syrian government launched the first of what became a series of crackdowns, sending tanks into restive cities as security forces opened fire on demonstrators” (Houissa). In comparison, the animals of the Manor Farm did not plan any protests, and instead planned a full-scale rebellion. Since there were no protests, Jones was not aware of the fact that the animals were going to rebel. He and his men were absolutely stunned and shocked
Especially with France’s track record of bad leaders. After Russia’s current Tsar at the time refused to follow Napoleons British blockade, Napoleon decided to go after Russia. This Russian campaign was poorly executed because the length and weather were underestimated. By the time they got to their capital, it was burnt down and abandoned. Russian’s had such fierce pride in their country that they would not take any chances with Napoleon and they burnt their own city down.
