The pigs are intellectuals, so in their favor, they are able to come up with ways to hid the fact that they are hoarding the good things on the farm. “Comrades, you do not imagine, I hope, that we pigs are doing this in a spirit of selfishness and privilege? Many of us actually dislike milk and apples” (Orwell 35). Squealer and the pigs keep the milk and
Lord Acton's Statement is best depicted through Napoleon since he is disgustingly avaricious, perilously power-hungry, and a gifted liar. Napoleon is a basically avaricious character. The primary case of this happens when there is new milk and the windfall apples accessible on the ranch and the pigs have them. This is shown when, Squealer, who speaks to publicity, misleading the creatures to reason taking the milk and apples says , “ ‘ You do not imagine, I hope, we are doing this in a spirit of selfishness and privilege? Many of us dislike milk and apples’ ” (Orwell 35).
Napoleon has also released many chants to help rally the animals on the farm. The satire present here is that the altering of the ten commandments effectively portray how the absurd the concept is. There is no way that animals could become, “more equal” than others. In the beginning of the novel, Old Major expressed that the animals shall overcome their oppressors, but the pigs become the oppressors. Through their chants and the ten commandments, the citizens are brainwashed to believe that everything is just and fair because when the commandments and chants were first written or said, everyone was in agreement, and believed it was fair.
Body paragraph one showed how fear mongering was used to scare the animals. For example, the vicious dogs and Jones comeback were used to scare the animals if they did not obey Napoleon. Body paragraph two showed how Napoleon blamed Snowball of all the predicaments and disasters they have faced so that he would stay in power; Snowball was blamed of the windmill ruin and associating with Jones. The third body paragraph about pigs manipulating animals to make them obey Napoleon, by making them believe that pigs should not work and that they deserve to sleep in beds to make up for the pigs’ mistakes. The animals thought that Animalism was going to be executed.
At first, the pigs work to get Mr. Jones off the land and they quarrel with him and his men when they waylaid them in the battle of Cowshed. Then they start conspiring with the neighboring farms and have men to make their deals for them. Suddenly, in the end Napoleon is walking on two feet along with the others and dressing like a man as he drinks with the humans and an amity is established. Honestly, this reversal did not take me by surprise at all, I was expecting nothing less from Napoleon. In conclusion, the story ‘Animal Farm’ is a extraordinary story about power and what it can do to a person or in this case an animal.
The first technique, satire, is displayed throughout the book. This makes the argument even more interesting. The satirical element is shown through the use of mockery towards the working class and the ruling class. One instance of mockery on the working class is conveyed when the most loyal and hard working animal, Boxer the horse, had collapsed and was immediately sent to the slaughterhouse. The animals had seen Boxer being sent to a van that clearly stated “Alfred Sims Slaughter house,” however, the pigs responded by telling the animals that Boxer was being sent to a surgeon, and that the surgeon had forgotten to paint the van once he had bought it.
Administration is to utilise someone in a skillful way. The pigs use controlling tactics to get the animals to do what they want without having them feel like they did something wrong. They mentally take advantage of the animals because they aren’t as smart as the others to get what they want. For example, in North Korea Kim Jong-un is the harshest leader in the world as of today. To add on, Jayant Bhadari says, “They have organized this tyranny in ways that were unimaginable to me, and people have been completely brainwashed.
It was assumed the animals with wisdom would govern the farm as shown, "... the pigs, who were manifestly cleverer than the other animals, should decide all questions of farm policy." (ch.5 pg.47) It all clearly points to the fact that all animals (and humans) have different strengths and different jobs and that they are not equal. This is also the case because some of the animals capabilities elevated their status within their society. This inequality sometimes helped the farm by providing a firm government but often lead to harsh mistreatment of many of the animals. The only reason animals often listened to the leader was because he had ferocious dogs protected him and in certain cases he used that power to protect his own interests.
All this power started to corrupt Napoleon and amplify his greediness. This made him become a dictator and he started to abuse his power. “Milk and apples (this has been proved by science, comrades) contain substances absolutely necessary to the well-being of a pig.”(Orwell 23) . Napoleon convinces the animals in the farm to give him and the pigs more milk and food. He convinces them by making up scientific facts that using your brain is more exhausting than physically working all day.
Society doesn’t teach evil it teaches manners, and well being but not evil. As shown in Chapter Seven of The Lord of The Flies Ralph tries to kill the pig on instinct showing the evil within him. Ralph was always trying to tell Jack not to focus on killing the pigs so much as if it was a sign of evil and he was trying to be good, but then he goes and attacks at a pig on instinct. Ralph says, “I hit him,” (113) full of excitement. He threw the spear on instinct, then once he realized he had hit the pig, almost killing it that is when he got excited.This is showing even though people are taught to do the right things and stay away from the evil there is somehow an evil beast
