In the book Animal Farm Napoleon had a group of dogs that would follow Napoleon's orders. “Silent and terrified the animals crept back into the barn,” (Orwell 53). This quote shows that after Napoleon's dogs chased away Snowball and tried to kill him because he disagreed with Napoleon that the animals were scared to disagree with what Napoleon was doing as a leader. This was also the case for what Stalin did except he had a force of people called the KGB… According to the article Relating Animal Farm to History: KBG vs Napoleon's Dogs, “The KGB eliminated rebellions and anti-USSR groups.” This quote show that like Napoleon's secret police of dogs would kill anyone who a threat to napoleon or disagreed with what he was doing would get kill just like the KGB would kill anyone who was against how stalin was ruling and people who disobeyed the
The corruption and dictation of the government was what inspired George Orwell to write Animal Farm. In both events, propaganda is widely used in various ways and was effective. Despite the differences between the propaganda used in World War II and Animal Farm, both of them aims for the same goal - to rule as a dictator. People uses fear to make people follow what they say since they don’t want to get hurt. As what has happened in Animal Farm, Napoleon declared “Snowball’s expulsion” (Orwell 54) without the Comrades’ approval since they made noises of disapproval.
They diverge in almost all points that can be a divergence and only agree when the is a threat to Animal Farm, such as Jones attack. These pigs have different concepts of how animals should be treated, if all animals should participate in the system and be educated, how the animals should be governed and mainly how to interpret Major’s advises, the principles of Animalism and the Seven Commandments. All these differences culminate in the episode when Snowball is removed from Animal Farm, leading to a farm governed by Napoleon where fear
We often find that it is simpler to stay hidden in the dark, rather than step out into the light. As citizens it is our responsibility to call out our leaders if they are not taking notice of what we, the people, want or need. The animals, in Animal Farm, overthrew their farmer and attempted to form a fair government, but soon became dictated to, by the pigs. The book records the evolution of tyranny to totalitarianism which became as terrible as their first situation. In Animal Farm, George Orwell illustrates that it is the responsibility of the citizens to stand up against injustice and inequality.
These rules were called the Seven Commandments. They were placed on the wall to set principles and policies for all animals during the rebellion. Before the rules were changed, and when Snowball, another leader was still on the farm, the animals were in a state of equality. However, ever since Napoleon had his 9 protective dogs chase Snowball off the farm, the animals have been in a state of inequality. Napoleon had Squealer, one of his followers that was a pig, to change the Seven Commandments for him.
Napoleon sends the guard dogs to attack Snowball, after that he runs away and doesnt come back.. Napoleon then become ruler, and is said to be a very good, wise pig. Napoleon knows that he has all the power because the pigs are the wises animals on the farm, being considered wise, every animal did what he said This is where the power goes to bad use and messes up the whole farm, the main reason that they overthrew the human owner was because of the way he treated the animals and the way he ran the farm, Old Major wanted ever animal to be equal. Since . Napoleon and the other pigs were breaking their own rule that they made and adjusting them to their benefit. They started to have human like characteristics, killing other animals that were in no stable condition, overworking animals.
While he does not play a major role in the fairy tale, he does play an important role in controlling the rebellious actions that they animals may have under the control of Napoleon. His ideas are used to make the animals believe that all their work will not be for nothing and that even after they die they will be rewarded with the paradise that is Sugarcandy Mountain. The pigs write his ideas off and persuade the animals of the farm not to listen to him. Although, later in the story, once Napoleon is in power, the pigs seem to change their attitude towards Moses’ ideas. After Moses returns to the farm, the author states, “they all declared contemptuously that his stories about Sugarcandy Mountain were lies, and yet they allowed him to remain on the farm, not working, with an allowance of a gill of beer a day” (Orwell 118).
The animals were forced to agree with Napoleon for they were unable to share their own opinions. Throughout the novel there are many examples of the unaccomplished goal of equality through communism. In George Orwell’s Animal Farm, communism is proven to lead to unfairness and dictatorship through the better living conditions of the pigs, harder work for the animals, and the inability for the animals to share their opinions. Orwell’s views on communism are well demonstrated through out his novel Animal
Squealer, the propaganda agent uses propaganda in the story as a way to manipulate the animals who are not pigs. He makes them believe everything he and the pigs are doing is for the greater good of the whole farm despite the fact that it is not. Squealer controls them in many ways but the strongest or most apparent are telling the other animals Mr. Jones their neglective abusive owner will come back, lying about Boxer the horse’s death, and finally changing the unalterable commandments into one that reads “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others”. One of the very first and most used techniques Squealer uses is instilling fear in the animals. He does this by threatening Jones’s return.
Under his leadership, the farm is attacked by Mr. Fredrick, a neighbouring farmer who destroys the windmill. Slowly, the pigs start acting like humans and superior to the other animals. They start trading with other animals, sleep in Mr. jones house and wore his clothes. Even the saying changes from ‘All animals are equal to’ to ‘All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal’. At the end, other animals can’t differentiate between the pigs and the humans, whom they were so
