In this novel, propaganda is presented through the character Squealer, who is Napoleon’s trusty companion. Squealer is the designated speaker for Napoleon, and he is easily able to persuade the other animals that Napoleon, along with the other pigs, are working for the good of everyone else. He mainly uses the method of “plain folks” in order to convince the other animals that the pigs are working just as hard as they are. The truth is, while Squealer is convincing everyone of Napoleon’s greatness and how great of a leader he is,
Napoleon and Snowball have different personalities and. In chapter 2, Napoleon is described as being a fierce-looking Berkshire boar, not much of a talker, but with a reputation for getting his own way. However, Snowball was a more vivacious pig than Napoleon, quicker in speech and more inventive. We can notice that, in the first lines of chapters two, there is already a contrast between the two pigs.
Squealer using his sharp tongue becomes Napoleon’s spokesperson and the dogs become his personal guards. He continues to use deceptive tactics, like blaming any loss on Snowball, and by lying to animals (e.g. circumstances of Boxer’s demise), Napoleon starts changing the rules and gains much more power. He alters the wording of the commandments to suit his needs. 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.
In the allegory “Animal Farm” written by George Orwell and published on 17th August 1945, there are a number of animals who take over a farm from a drunk, irresponsible man named Mr Jones. These animals are all specifically made to represent different people and their characteristics who played a role during the revolution in Russia, for example, how Joseph Stalin and Leon Trotsky are represented as two pigs named Napoleon and Snowball. There is also a stubborn donkey named Benjamin who doesn 't want to be a part of the rebellion, he represents the people who refused to get involved in politics. These animals show the truth of what the revolutions were like and how people behaved. Napoleon Joseph Stalin the great leader of the soviet union is portrayed in George Orwell’s “Animal Farm” as a selfish, controlling pig named Napoleon, who was one of the leaders of the other animals who represent the working class people.
Propaganda is usually some type of misleading information that is used to promote a certain political view or idea. One crucial part of the propaganda is when the pigs trained the sheep to bleat “Four legs good, two legs bad!” (34 Orwell) at moments when the animals were uneasy about the rules that the pigs were creating. For example, when Napoleon announced that they would begin to engage in trade with other farms
Imagine being on a farm where animals take over. All humans have fled from the farm, while the animals have a rebellion against them. They use the phrase, “Four legs good, two legs bad” and whoever had grasped this phrase would be safe from human influences. This was the life the animals lived on Animal Farm while Napoleon takes over as their leader. Napoleon is a sneaky, cruel pig who always gets his way and that is how it has always been and always will be.
But, it turns into a disaster and Napoleon, one of the pigs, takes over the farm by manipulating the animals and gets guard dogs. The authors obvious irony and symbolism helps support the theme that history repeats itself because no matter what, the bad and good are constantly on war, and only repeat rather than make progress. Napoleon and Mr. Jones are paralleled two characters that help represent that history repeats itself. Mr Jones was overthrown by Napoleon, but Napoleon later acted exactly like Mr. Jones. “The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and man to pig, and from pig to man again, but already it was impossible to say which was which.”
The ensuing rebellion under the leadership of the pigs Napoleon and Snowball leads to the animals taking over the farm. Vowing to eliminate the terrible inequities of the farmyard, the renamed Animal Farm is organised to benefit all who walk on four legs. But as time passes, the ideals of the rebellion are corrupt, then forgotten. This is all due to the lust for power that the pigs Napoleon and Snowball have that made them all selfish and corrupted. Animal farm in context to The Russian Revolution in terms of corrupting influence of power : Orwell 's goal was to portray the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the early years of the Soviet Union that resulted in a more oppressive and deadly government than the one it overthrew.
After Old Major dies, the pigs a point themselves as the leaders, as pigs are “recognized as being the cleverest of the animals”. At the start of their reign they worked honestly to serve the animals and towards a common cause; the revolution. They continue the work that Old Major started. However, as they grow more corrupt they begin to use intelligence and education to oppress the other animals. Their greed overcomes their honesty and they use their superior intellect to fool and manipulate the other animals.
Boxer played a role by being passive, gullible and by valuing blind faith for Napoleon. In contrast, the dogs contributed by exercising their aggressions and taking actions. Meanwhile Squealer’s use of his quick-wittedness and rhetorical ability was the way in which he helped the pigs stay in power. Overall, many of the characters and occurrences within Animal Farm are representations of figures and events that took place in our real world and that marked our history. Orwell wrote this fable not only to convey that power corrupts but also to remind and warn people, especially the working class, that what government, hence live conditions they live under, is partially determined by their own actions and
The achievements of the areas of the Sub-Saharan region sooner than their substantial relationship with substitute frameworks had been the satisfaction of the all inclusive community in Sub-Saharan Africa, their fine art culture, and their law and value structure.

Conformist V.S Nonconformist “Four legs good, two legs bad” is what the animals on Animal Farm by George Orwell lived by. Snowball and The Dogs was the animals on the farm that helped enforce this rule. Snowball is a pig that challenges Napoleon for control of Animal Farm after the rebellion. Snowball won the loyalty of the animals but Napoleon won the farm.
“What I Learned and What I Said at Princeton” by David Saderis and “Against School: How Public Education Cripple Our Kids, And Why” by John Taylor Gatto both relate to school using the experience that they encounter in the system. Both writers give example of how the education can affect the student reflection. In “What I Learned and What I Said at Princeton,” Saderis mention how his dad was in character of his school, “He had the whole outfit: Princeton breastplate, Princeton nightcap; he even got the velvet cape with the tiger hanging like a rucksack from between the should blades (Saderis 197).” Failing was not an option for Saderis; his dad is constantly bloated about him as a Princeton student. In the second essay, “Against School:
Human Selfishness Shown Through George Orwell’s Novel, Animal Farm There is no way to hide the selfishness trait in humans, no matter how many charities they donate to, how many children they help, there will always be that selfishness in them. Although no one will ever admit it, humans since before we know it, have always been like this, and will never change this feature for the time to come. George Orwell, an english novelist, who realized this at an early time, did a very efficient job at showing this to the rest of the world through his novel Animal Farm. In the novel, George Orwell uses theme and allegory to share his views on society by displaying that the aim for equality in society is unachievable because people are inherently selfish
