First, they’ve experienced violence under the tyranny of their leaders. It is said that the Animals where being executed by Napeleon for those who will be against his will. Whereas in Billy Budd, members in the cruise are being punished extremely because people are abiding the rules. This implicates that the leaders of the said book are being abusive to their power and violent to his constituents. In addition, the story also shows the naiveté of Billy Budd and Boxer in Animal farm believing that their leaders are always right.
The animals went through a great deal of suffering and hard but it all paid off after they drove Mr. Jones out of the farm. Now that they have taken over the farm they have to deal with the difficulties that arise because of this. Such as, how to deal with those who do not agree with the decisions made, and those who want to take leadership. In Animal Farm, power was misused by the pigs using their advantage, mistreating the other animals, and changing the commandments.
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.
The men then enter the shed with whips to punish the animals, and “this was one more than the hungry animals could bear..they flung themselves upon their tormentors” (38). After being abused and mistreated the animals could no longer tolerate their poor living conditions, so they carry out the rebellion by kicking man off Manor farm. The animals rebel against the men similar to the way the Bolshevik Party revolted against the czar regime. The Communist League, which despised the way everyone toiled for hours and hours at work, contrived the Bolshevik Party. Moreover, the animals decide to rebel because of Old Major who brings to other animal’s attention that the men oppress and over-work them to an intolerable degree.
This shows the tension between the tenant farmers and the authorities. In several places in The Grapes of Wrath, there are examples of this fear coming out to harm the Okies into submission. One instance of this appears when a third person narrator explains that “ the owners hated [the Okies] because the owners knew they were soft and the Okies strong, that they were fed and the Okies hungry; and perhaps the owners had heard from their grandfathers how easy it is to steal land from a soft man if you are fierce and hungry and armed. The owners hated them,” (Steinbeck, 300). This awareness of the potential threat brought with the Okies and other farmers was a large source of the persecution shown to the lower class in 1930’s California.
As the pigs were the brainworkers of the farm. "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others” indicates the pigs’ greed for power and control. The fact that pigs are more equal than the rest of the farm animals shows the unfairness of the pigs’ moral principles. They are willing to do injustice to the others animals by putting their comforts and needs before the others and not being fair with the other animals. The rest of the animals follow blindly as they do not have the capacity to understand the injustice done to them.
The ensuing rebellion under the leadership of the pigs Napoleon and Snowball leads to the animals taking over the farm. Vowing to eliminate the terrible inequities of the farmyard, the renamed Animal Farm is organised to benefit all who walk on four legs. But as time passes, the ideals of the rebellion are corrupt, then forgotten. This is all due to the lust for power that the pigs Napoleon and Snowball have that made them all selfish and corrupted. Animal farm in context to The Russian Revolution in terms of corrupting influence of power : Orwell 's goal was to portray the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the early years of the Soviet Union that resulted in a more oppressive and deadly government than the one it overthrew.
Animal Farm is a short novel about a rebellion of the animals against a farmer who is not a correct ruler in animals’ perspective. After the old major (an elder pig) convinces them that everyone must be equal, animals start to believe that human beings are horrible creatures because of farmer’s unequal farm which causes to start animals’ rebellion when they see the chance. After the win against, the farmer, Mr. Jones they change the farm’s name into Animal Farm and pigs become animals’ and use some authority to become superior to the other animals. Since the novel has been written, Animal Farm counted as a parody of the Soviet Union in the 20th century. Characters in the story can be compared to historical figures in Soviet Union’s history.
In Animal Farm the leader Napoleon convinces the other animals to turn on the humans. He also convinces them that whatever he says, no matter how ridiculous, is the rule. In “the most Dangerous Game” General Zaroff, the antagonist, hunts people for game
Napoleon's scapegoating of a former animal, a pig named Snowball helps keep him in control of the other animals and brings the crosshairs away from him and the other pigs. Napoleon's brutality is not an unknown characteristic to the other animals, which helps Napoleon scare and keeps in check those who oppose his tyrannical reign. Finally, Napoleons more cunning method which could be the most effective, the revisionism of the history and rules that the animals live by and draw inspiration from. This puts into light how such gruesome dictators can control their people with such cruel and fallible
