The animals, who believe everything, think that the “Horse Slaughterer” that took Boxer was actually a veterinarian in his new van thanks to Squealer. At this point, us pigs are far superior to other farm animals. We can read, write, wear clothes, drink alcohol, and walk. Some things were just meant to be, and I believe that pigs were meant to rule. I am the greatest, and every animal should look up to me as a king.
Not like Napoleon thinking of profits every day, Snowball cares about the animals’ life. For example, the animals had lots of breaks and ration at first. All the products belonged to themselves, and they did not have to care for food. Everyone received food and worked according to their capacity, and no one grumbled. In the contrast, after the farm had only one ruler, Napoleon, the animals had little ration and have to give out the products.
Jones (man) and drives him out of the farm. They change the name of the farm from Manor farm to Animal farm. The pigs consider themeselves as cleverest of all and undertake the administration of the farm. Two pigs namely Napolean and Snowball compete for the leadership of the farm. Snowball is the animal who wants the best for the farms and other animlas.
Napoleon took the dogs from their mother when they were puppies, and ensured they went through no education besides his own, ultimately leading them to believe and follow all he says and does. The dogs act as a military that the other animals would have to go through first before getting to their totalitarian ruler, Napoleon. He knows that by creating a new generation that knows nothing other than his leadership, is newly skilled, and stronger than the older generation, he is ensuring that the rest of the citizens will follow suit out of fear. Orwell added this allegory to the Hitler Youth into Animal Farm to press people to look upon the current education system and investigate the motives of those doling out information. Furthermore, Orwell creates an example of a government using self-centered education to control the masses in 1984 through the addition of the Spies in Oceania, which causes the new generation to believe everything their government tells them.
Historically, many comparisons can be made between George Orwell’s novel Animal Farm and the Russian Revolution. Orwell believed that even though socialism is favorable, it can never be successfully embraced due to uncontrollable sins of human nature. During the Russian Revolution many of Joseph Stalin 's important decisions are related to the actions of Napoleon from Animal Farm. Even though, Napoleon and Stalin both ended differently a lot of what they did is the same. Napoleon and Stalin are similar because their lust for power, their opinion on creating equal and fair environment and their selfishness.
Another example of Boxer being loyal to Napoleon is when Napoleon’s dogs tried to attack Boxer and he could have very easily killed them: “Four days later, in the late afternoon, Napoleon ordered all the animals to assemble in the yard. When they were all gathered together, Napoleon emerged from the farmhouse, wearing both his medals (for he had recently awarded himself "Animal Hero, First Class," and "Animal Hero, Second Class"), with his nine huge dogs frisking round him and uttering growls that sent shivers down all the animals' spines. They all cowered silently in their places, seeming to know in advance that some terrible thing was about to happen. Napoleon stood sternly surveying his audience; then he uttered a high-pitched whimper. Immediately the dogs bounded forward, seized four of the pigs by the ear and dragged them, squealing with pain and terror, to Napoleon's feet.
He strived to help all the animals have a better life and for the Rebellion to spread throughout England, even conflicting with Napoleon’s ideas. However Snowball 'often won over the majority by his brilliant speeches'. His charismatic speeches led him to be universally liked, with every animal agreeing with his opinions. His efforts to lead much of the start of the Rebellion, especially the Battle of Cowshed, show leadership qualities in Snowball as a hero. As you can see, Snowball could also have been the hero, before getting chased off the farm, as he stood up to Napoleon and gladly performed many good deeds for the wellbeing of the farm and
After Napoleon had all and any threats out of the way, Boxer, his plan to truly be the ruler of Animal Farm and all animals was put to work. “He carried a whip in his trotter.” (page 133). “Four legs good, two legs better!...” (page 134). In the novel, Napoleon does win, just like in the Russian Revolution how Stalin won. In the end, Napoleon even changed the name back to its original name, Manor farm.
“But...the dogs sitting round Napoleon let out deep, menacing growls, and the pigs fell silent and sat down again.” This phrase describes Napoleon’s dogs after they chased Snowball off the farm. He used the dogs to scare the other animals into doing what he told them without hesitation. This is just one of the ways he uses fear to stay in control. Napoleon also uses propaganda to remain in power. “‘...Bravery isn’t enough’, said Squealer, ‘Loyalty and obedience are more important, and as of the Battle of Cowshed, I believe the time will come when we shall find his part in it much exaggerated.’” This quote describes how Napoleon uses his position to change the opinions of the animals by belittling Snowball.
The pigs didn’t do any work, they slept in the bed and manipulated other animals, “The pigs didn’t actually work” (27). Since the other animals weren’t smart and didn’t know how to read and write, the pigs told them they know how to read and write, they can supervise them. The pigs always gave the other animals wrong information about things, even about other pigs and animals. In the book the pigs tell the other animals “It’s for your sake that we drink that milk and eat those apples” (36). They didn’t share the milk and apple and told them it’s for the pigs’ good health which was a lie in my opinion.
