INTRODUCTION The novel animal farm is a fictional story written based on true events by George Orwell. George Orwell creates the book, Animal Farm as an analogy based on the Russian Revolution. The Russian Revolution began in 1917 and was a brutal and explosive political occurrence. The novel follows the events of the Russian Revolution and displays a simple story of animals on a farm that reveals a much deeper and complex time of history.
In the novel, “Animal Farm”, by George Orwell, a Berkshire Boar named Napoleon is very mischievous, cruel and manipulative when he takes control of the farm that the animals had previously freed from its former ruler farmer Jones. This allegory, is symbolic of the 1917 Russian Revolution and often alludes to many Communist ideals or figures from this event. One such example is the representation of the Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin as Napoleon. Another is the flag that the animals find depicting a horn and a hoof, much like the Soviet hammer and sickle. The events in the novel and particularly those involving Napoleon are very reminiscent of the events in Russian history.
Power Hungry Pigs At some point of a communist society, a group of people decide that they are better than everyone else and it leads to too much power in the wrong hands. In George Orwell’s Animal Farm, Napoleon believes that every animal should be treated the same and not be controlled by humans. He also believes that pigs are superior and should be treated with more respect.
“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely” once expressed Lord Acton. This provocative quote is shown through the figurative tale Animal Farm by George Orwell. This tale recounts common homestead creatures and their leaders, the pigs, beginning a transformation. At the point when the unrest initially starts all is well after the "Seven Commandment of Animalism", however as time proceeds with a power-parched pig, Napoleon, assumes control conceivably turning Animalism into Communism. Lord Acton's Statement is best depicted through Napoleon since he is disgustingly avaricious, perilously power-hungry, and a gifted liar.
Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power. There are many different types of leadership and they all react differently to power. A leadership style like authoritarian usually has the leader forcing others to do certain things, for example most corporate bosses tell you to do your task or you 'll be fired. Giving power to an authoritative leader usually goes wrong, they think they can get away with things and that no one can question them. This leadership style usually leads to giving very few people power, which leads to corruption.
Servility Under Totalitarianism- An Analysis of Animal Farm Animal Farm written by George Orwell is a political fable style novel, and the story describes how animals in animal farm began to brew revolution, rise and final transformation”. The farm originally was hosted by a human being called Mr. Jones, who made oppression, resistance to animals and later was expelled by animals under the leadership of the the pigs.

Animal Farm, written by George Orwell is an allegorical novel based on the animals revolution against humans. This novel reflects his views on the Russian Revolution of 1917. One of the important themes of this novel is how the animals contribute to the pigs-take over. Some helps actively but are ignorant of what is going on around them, while others have the knowledge but are not using it for good. All animals contributed to the pigs gaining control in different ways, but the question is which one benefit the pigs more.
In the book Animal Farm by George Orwell the Pigs Learned how to read and write, but was it for the benefit of the farm? I think it was so the Pigs could be superior to the other animals which breaks the idea of animalism but to take the other animals off the fact that it breaks animalism, the Pigs tried to teach the other (and much dumber) animals to read and write knowing they would not be able to. Some animals were able to memorize the seven lines of the animals commandments and some could only memorize the first six letters but the majority of the farm couldn’t learn at all. I think the Pigs intention was also to confuse some animals on the farm about the big picture of what the Pigs are doing or as some sort of distraction. I feel like the pigs will take advantage of the dumb animals and use reading and writing to lead them into something they do not understand or make the farm based around it more.
