Unlike the pigs in Animal Farm, Abraham Lincoln embodies the characteristics of a strong leader because he/she symbols honesty, loving, and care. Lincoln cares about if everybody is doing okay and feel good, but the pigs only care about getting power, having money, and drinking whiskey. Orwell explains, “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others (Orwell 80). The pigs think all animals are equal but some are more which is the opposite. It says,
He does not necessarily align to expected social norms, and lives his life according to his own needs. Regardless of the types of differences they hold, the two are still forced under the nebulous category of the mad because of the fact that they are simply just different. Me describes Rameau’s nephew as “one of the most bizarre characters,” and Don Quijote is constantly called mad throughout the book through passing minor characters. The descriptions mean dissimilar ideas but come to same idea: strange and different. From the views of others in the books, the two characters are indeed strange, as they commit to behaviors out of the ordinary.
Although, Piggy was one of the only characters that remained true to himself and kept a sense of intelligence amongst the group. Piggy's characteristics vary dramatically compared to the others which caused them to bully him. The group used intimidating names such as "fat boy" and "fatty" when conversing about Piggy. Involving the idea of symbolism as it relates to the idea of Piggy, his glasses were very significant when explaining his important role in Lord of the Flies. The glasses represented an example of mental power amongst the group and their survival on the island.
This shows that he does not wish to be seen as an equal to the other animals. This also shows that he is quickly becoming more human by, using their items--the gun and medals-- year round. Moreover, he rids of the Seven Commandments and song which inspired the rebellion of the animals, the Beasts of England, in favor of a song describing his greatness (29). This shows that he does not care for the true origin in of Animal Farm, unity among animals for a better future, and eradicates such for a song only speaking highly of himself. This also shows that he finds himself to be much more worthy of such attention although the Seven Commandments and Beasts of England involve all animals, the new song by the name of Comrade Napoleon is only about the boar.
Squealer uses different types strategies that change over time to better understand his target audience, which are the animals. For example the sheep, which are seen to be the most vulnerable and submissive to Squealer and Napoleon. Some of the most effective techniques are to be bandwagon, card stacking, and fear. Since the use of propaganda is sufficient, they promised life on the farm would be pleasurable for everyone, but actually resulted in the pigs empowering the farm. Even though the use of Squealer’s propaganda techniques does not fulfill the goals of the community of the farm, the animals still believe that he his right and agrees to follow his lead.
Through examination of Lord of the Flies, Golding seems to share this point of view. When left in an environment lacking authority, the boys attempt to follow the fundamental rule of nature, electing Ralph as their leader and for a time, following his rules. However, when another boy desired the same position, competition arose and Ralph was revealed to be less powerful and disrespected by the group. Jack found his power in feeding off the other boys’ fears, and using violent, animalistic techniques, which proved to be what they truly desired. War broke out between the two, as Hobbes predicted would happen in such circumstances, and morality was only restored when a powerful figure of authority finally arrived on the island.
This quote summarizes how the pigs changed from being one of the animals (comrades), to becoming like the humans (oppressors). The animals thought they could trust the pigs because they started off having similar ideologies, but as the story continued the pigs became more invested in their own selfish gain. This can be related to how Joseph Stalin started off as a communist, and wanted everyone to be equal. However, as he got a taste for power he wanted more and became like the Tsar’s that ruled
Lord of the Flies Jack represents being power hungry and disobedient for the incorrect reasons In the book Lord of the flies, there are several things that connect the earth right now and human expertise. In the book most of the boys go through a phase that they never went through before, through out the book they're going through a "animal-like" phase that I feel the reader does not expect from them. I decided a decision} to concentrate on Jack because I believe that he was a lot more animal-like then the other boys because of that I think he extremely stands out because of his actions and feelings he made the other boys animal-like. I feel this is often necessary as a result of the influence he created on the other boys is quite like
Some see the beast as primitivity or savagery, while others see the beast as power. Many of the issues on the island arise from power struggle. Ralph is very clear to state his leadership qualifications, “’I ought to be chief,’ said Jack with simple arrogance, ‘because I'm chapter chorister and head boy. I can sing C sharp.’” But, Jack disapproves and believes that he is more qualified. This struggle is the spark that ignites the cruelty in Jack and the demise of Ralphs leadership.
In the book “Animal Farm” by George Orwell, the animals aren’t able to think for themselves as individuals or do what they feel is better for them because of the leadership they are being controlled by. By the way Boxer acts, he is kind and passionate for what he does, but one thing he doesn’t like to do that is not part of his character is kill. “ ‘I have no wish to take life, not even human life’ … ‘No sentimentality, comrade!’ cried Snowball, from whose wounds the blood was still dripping. ‘War is war. The only good human being is a dead one’ “ (38).
Golding used a great example using piggy to represent the morals of modern society. Piggy shows that he is the supergeo by always doing what is right and he is the “good” in the novel. The superego is always second guessing what he does to make sure he is doing the right thing. The superego gives a hard time to the ego by making him feel guilty of what he does/say. The Id and the superego fight each other to see who gets the control over the ego.
