Although both brought benefits to the farm, the animals lived happier at first. The farm had filled with positive energy, everyone encouraged each other. Greatly different from Snowball’s compassion, Napoleon’s heart was only filled with power and his own selfish desire. Even if the farm became richer, everyone would like freedom instead of living in fear of Napoleon. For the sake of the animal’s livelihood, Snowball should take the place of Napoleon and stay in the Animal Farm to govern the animals.
After the windmill is destroyed, Napoleon blames Snowball by saying that he is the traitor who is trying "to set back our plans and avenge himself for his ignominious expulsion” (82). Napoleon’s strong desire to keep power drives him to blame Snowball for the destruction of the windmill to make him look good, so he would not be blamed for all the destructions and injuries that occur within the Farm. This impels the animals to assume that Snowball is the victim and consequently the animals would rely on Napoleon to keep Snowball away for their protection. Squealer swindles the animals saying that the windmill was actually Napoleon’s invention and that his opposition towards it is just a fabrication in order “to get rid of Snowball, who was a dangerous character and a bad influence” (71). Napoleon’s only strategy is to make the animals under the impression that Snowball is the source of all destructions in order to keep his power.
Both Napoleon and Snowball have distinct intentions when in front of the other animals. Snowball behaves in a way in which is beneficial towards the community of animal farm. Furthermore, during the meeting in the big barn, Snowball was full of “plans for innovations”, in an altruistic tone conveying his yearning to ameliorate animal living standards. Snowball demonstrates diligence to in order to improve the Farm’s infrastructure. Moreover, Snowball busied himself with organising the other animals into what he called “Animal Committees”, a refined visual image that consists of reading and writing classes to boost animal education in the farm.
After Snowball had finished his speech about the windmill, napoleon had called for his dogs with a “high pitched whimper,” to chase Snowball off the farm. The dogs created fear in all of the animals, making it easy for Napoleon to take over the leadership of Animal Farm. The dogs were the puppies that Napoleon had taken away from their mothers and “reared privately,” implying that Napoleon had intended to control the dogs for his own bodyguards from the beginning. The dogs would also prevent rebellion against Napoleon by letting out “menacing,” growls every time an animal would question Napoleon’s authority any further. Though later in the chapter, Napoleon orders his dogs to slaughter any of the animals who had previously questioned his authority on Animal Farm.
(p.20) the shows that even though he questioned Napolion about snowball destroying the windmill, he closed his mouth and said "Napoleon is always right." Moreover, this shows that Boxer does not want to doubt Napoleon's leadership. To conclude Boxer was so devoted that he didn't know Napoleon was scared of him and that Napoleon would soon send him to the knacker himself. To sum it up boxer was a great leader in the book Animal Farm. He was a brave, devoted, and dimwitted worker.
He wasn 't important anymore. In addition he also had his large army of pigs, who were also under his control, all of whom could do more work through brains. So Napoleon had sent him off the the knackers, a business where they dispose of unwanted animals. This shows that, Boxer was unwanted in his state of uselessness. However, Napoleon had used propaganda and convinced the other animals that Boxer was being sent to a kind hospital.
This shows that napoleon felt threatened by Snowball and was worried he would take over the farm so he used his dogs to try to kill Snowball so Napoleon could have no choice but to rule the farm. Like Napoleon, Stalin would get rid of anyone who would rebel against his rules or disagree with what he was doing...According to the article "Stalin Banishes Trotsky" by the Editors of History.com, “He ordered someone to kill Trotsky.” This evidence
Even though work on Sunday afternoon was strictly “voluntary”, why are they being punished by decreasing their food supply by half? This is a way of oppressing the animals into doing more work because Napoleon is punishing the animals if they don’t follow the rules. Also, Squealer often manipulated the animals to thinking that whatever Napoleon is doing with humans was ok, since the rest of the animals do not have good memories. In chapter 6, Napoleon recently announced that they would start trading with the humans in order to gain supplies for the windmill. “Never to have any dealings with human beings, never to engage in trade, never to make use of money, had not these been among the earliest resolutions at the first triumphant Meeting after Jones was expelled?...Squealer made a round of the farm and set the animals’ mind to rest.
The situation which occurred during the war on the farm with Boxer hitting one of the men and throwing him lifeless to the ground caused a conflict between him and Snowball. While Snowball showed no regret for the circumstances, Boxer was saddened and felt some remorse for his action because he believed that his strength was to be used for the uplifting of the farm. His intentions was not to kill anyone as stated in writings in George Orwell’s book, ‘I have no wish to take life, not even human life’. Boxer himself encountered internal conflict by the expulsion of Snowball who he believed would not have want to jeopardize the farm. Squealer was so good at painting such a negative image of Snowball and though Boxer seemed naïve, his instinct caused him not to believe it was true.
