In sheer malignity, thinking to set back our plans and avenge himself for his ignominious expulsion, this traitor has crept here under cover of night and destroyed our work of nearly a year." (73) In this part, Napoleon has separated between the animals in the farm as “us" and Snowball as “the enemy”. Also, he described Snowball 's state, which is a lie, by using the word “malignity” which means malevolence. This time, as the windmill not only has high sentimental value to the animals but also stands for their pride, the animals begins to learn that Snowball is genuinely guilty and think out ways of catching him. Therefore, the hate speech in this part can be considered in the type of incitement in the construction of hatred, intentional discrimination to the targeted group to create “they” and “us", and incitement to make violence to the targeted
Another story, that happened in 2010, includes a zoo in China which allowed eleven of its Siberian tigers to die of starvation. Their reason was that the animal’s food was too expensive, so they couldn’t afford it (Carr,2012). In addition, the animals also suffer from medical conditions and usually the zoos won’t bring them to vets or treat them, instead they would let them die (Wild Animals Do Not Make Good Pets, 2016). In an article in 2010, an undercover investigator filmed what he saw at the Tweddle Farm Zoo in England. In the zoo he found dead untreated animals left in their cages and when he took their rabbits to the vet he found that most of them had infections because they weren’t cared for (“10 facts about zoos”, 2010).
During his reign, the Russian people experienced terrible poverty and upheaval, marked by the Bloody Sunday massacre in 1905 when unarmed protesters demanding social reforms were shot down by the army near Nicholas ' palace. As the animals under Jones lead lives of hunger and want, the lives of millions of Russians worsened during Nicholas ' reign. When Russia entered World War I and subsequently lost more men than any country in any previous war, the outraged and desperate people began a series of strikes and mutinies that signaled the end of Tsarist control. When his own generals withdrew their support of him, Nicholas abdicated his throne in the hopes of avoiding an all-out civil war — but the civil war arrived in the form of the Bolshevik Revolution, when Nicholas, like Jones, was removed from his place of rule and then died shortly thereafter.

I read a book called, “Animal Farm” written by George Orwell. The book is about animals on a farm who are overworked and aren 't treated well. Then, an insurgency made up of animals with pigs as their leaders, rebel against Mr.Jones (owner of the farm) by driving him off his farm. The animals try to make the perfect life for themselves, but that doesn’t go as planned. The animal farm then starts to fail.
a. Orwell’s Animal Farm is an allegory because the events that happen on Manor Farm are very similar to the events that happened in Russia. For instance, when the animals overthrew Mr. Jones, this was to illustrate the Russian Revolution where the peasants overthrew the ruling party. The characters in Animal Farm symbolize historical figures such as Joseph Stalin (Napoleon), the KGB (the dogs), and the working class (Boxer). The windmill project causes the feud between Napoleon and Snowball, and Snowball is forced to leave the farm much like Stalin caused Leon Trotsky to leave the country. The chickens being coerced to produce more eggs resembles the Stalinist period that the Communist state set impossible industrial and agricultural production
in late June when the hay was almost ready for cutting, Mr. Jones, the owner of the farm, forgot to feed the animals. The animals went to get the food themselves when Jones and his men started to whip the animals for stealing food. The animals were angry and started to attack jones and his men. jones and his men ranout from nthe farm leaving the animals behind. The animals
The Kulaks had very little to eat and endured a great famine killing 3-8 million people, yet the state did nothing to help them. If the villagers are hiding their grain, the only plausible reason for that is the lack of food. Yet, the kolkhoz failed to realize the peasants undergoing starvation as they only care about meeting their grain quotas. The people of Russia were treated inhumanely as they were left to starve and face cruel conditions. Bubyr says, “Time to shut up, you rotten meat!
This is juvenalian satire because it is trying to show readers how corrupt Joseph Stalin was because of how inconsiderate he was towards the citizens of his country. Orwell uses satire in Animal Farm to show the theme of foolishness though Mollie’s characterization. For example, Mollie shows how foolish she is: “She was late for work every morning and excused herself by saying that she had
There was very little medical care and standards of education were very low. Even though Stolypin stopped the peasant uprisings, by setting up field court-martial and executing 1144 in 1 year, this caused the protesters to meet terror with terror. Trade unions were also banned and the police cracked down on protests. The tsar, wanted no political concessions all what he did was accepting to the duma. He closed 1000 newspapers and forced 600 trade unions to close so this angered the society even though it restored order.
As so often happens, when the people grow weary of inequality revolution is inevitable. In times of crisis such as living under the tyranny of a kingship, it is not uncommon for the people as a whole to band together to repel and even overthrow the forces
