The excellent utilization of persuasive techniques in propaganda, as depicted in Animal Farm by George Orwell, only empowers to whoever uses it. Techniques of propaganda used by Squealer persuade the animals on the farm to look up to Napoleon as the leader of the farm. Even though the health of the farm is not considered, Squealer’s propaganda
Animal Farm CARTT Everyone has needs and wants. As power and greed come into play, people put their wants over the needs of others. They are so blinded by their desires that they fail to recognize if others’ necessities are met. In the novella Animal Farm, by George Orwell the more powerful and educated pigs take advantage of the inferior, weaker animals on the farm; overworking and manipulating them. As the Animal Farm rebellion grows more successful, the pigs and especially Napoleon, who takes the role of leader, begins to realize that he could exploit the rest of the animals for the pigs’ wants.
Language can be manipulated as an instrument of control. In Animal Farm, by George Orwell, the pigs gradually twist and distort a rhetorical world of socialist revolution to justify their behavior and to keep the other animals in the dark. "People say they love truth, but in reality they want to believe that which they love is true." Quotes: Old majors speech: Comrades _> they are friends makes them equal on some level what does this do to me?? Ive had a lkong life _ experience Speaks directly to his people Animal Farm Topic Tracking: Propaganda Propaganda 1: Old Major uses some techniques of propaganda in his speech to the animals - he identifies humans as the enemy, and attempts to unite them all against this common enemy.
According to the story, Napoleon is the only one candidate, he becomes a President or another truly word is the officially director. This shows us know that even there is the election; the pigs are still dominating the other animals by threaten them with the dogs so that no one braves enough to apply to be candidate as usual as they are afraid of the pigs and the partisan, the proletariat whatever dictate the other one. Furthermore, the fierce dogs, Napoleon’s partisan, are the guard who arrest the rebels by killing them in front of the other animals for frightfulness. We can see that the politics of capitalist form the oppression of the lower class or the individual class. Those who have power in system only concern to keep maintaining their power by any tools necessary.
In the book, Napoleon uses dictatorship to order other animals, uses accuration, and give harsh punishment who block his way. George Orwell portrays Napoleon as Stalin in many similar ways. Just as some leaders use dictatorship to control political aspects, pigs also use dictatorship to control animals. Animal Farm uses characterization to suggest that although cruel leadership can be effective, it will lead to
Napoleon in the novel is not a wise character. However, he occupies the leader’s position since he is intimidating and authoritative. In contrast, Snowball who is portrayed as the intelligent character, somehow gets expelled from the farm, because he was not as manipulative as Napoleon. To begin with, Orwell uses propaganda as one way of illustrating the theme of power. Napoleon and Squealer both utilize propaganda to brainwash and motivate the animals into following their orders, such as when Snowball teaches the sheep into chanting the slogan, “Four legs good, two legs bad!”(Orwell, page 34).
Old Major, an old boar, teaches the animals about the Rebellion, a plan to overthrow Jones and take control. After Major passes, the animals decide to carry it out. All the animals come up with commandments, and two pigs take charge. Napoleon and Snowball fight over control of the farm; eventually, Napoleon finds way to kick Snowball out of the farm. Over the course of the book, Napoleon converts the farm into a place only benefiting the pigs, breaking the very beliefs it was started on.
They did everything in their power to be the new leaders, no matter what it entailed. Using their illiteracy against them, and their horrible memory. There was two pigs who ruled, Snowball, and Napoleon and his right hand man Squealer. These pigs went to great lengths to become the only rulers, and unfortunately one of them had to pay the price. Overthrowing the drunk farmer who runs Manor Farm, their plan came into action.
In Animal Farm, the dilemma started when Old major dies and all of the animals in the Manor farm inspired by Old Major’s philosophy of Animalism. They plot a rebellion against Mr. Jones and the mutiny is a success. Snowball and Napoleon lead the said rebellion, and renamed the Manor Farm to Animal Farm. The pigs became the leaders because of their intelligence and Napoleon proves to be hungry in power. He also appoints Squealer to be his assistant and spoke person.
However, deception clearly exists in Animal Farm and this is shown through the abuse of the ignorant animals by other intelligent animals. Napoleon achieves his reign at Manor Farm through the exploitation of other animals’ innocence with the help of the dogs and Squealer, an ambitious and intelligent pig. The pigs, except for Snowball, are portrayed as deceitful characters due to their ability to manipulate the rest of the animals. The author describes Squealer as “a brilliant talker, and when he was arguing some difficult point he had a way of skipping from side to side and whisking his tail which was somehow very persuasive.” (Orwell 13). According to the other animals, Squealer possesses the ability to “turn black into white”, which enables him to take advantage of naive and loyal animals, such as
