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.
In the story, many animals represent real people from the Russian Revolution of the 1910s, and they start to form their own set of rules, called “animalism.” Lessons are learned inside the allegory and in modern society as well. In both Animal Farm and modern society, one such lesson that is seen is that power can easily
Although unintentional, it is the passiveness and ignorance of the farm animals that leads to the utter failure of their ideal society. A necessity to ensure an ideal and functional community, as demonstrated in George Orwell 's 1945 novel Animal Farm, is the ability to detect and prevent corrupt conduct, read, and the will to challenge authority, which the animals do not possess, therefore putting them at major fault. One of the main factors that leads to the downfall of the farm and Animalism itself is the blatant stupidity that the animals, excluding the pigs, possess. They are overly dense to the point where the concept of corruption is near unfathomable, and thus cannot detect it or act upon their suspicions. Their willingness to believe Squealer 's persuasive speeches whenever doubt arises indicate that the animals are unable to think for themselves.
They work harder for their survival and food while pigs start to simply readjust the food, something peculiar to Tsar. They used the tactics to keep the animals busy in work while the over-worked laboring class has not a little time left to reflect what is happening in the Farm and in that manner oppression works and masses are basically exploited. Then, the battle of cowshed took place which was a terrible blood shed scene but animals got the victory against Mr. Jones. After that the idea of windmill was suggested by Snowball another pig, his idea symbolizes the modernization of Animal Farm. The working class will get warmth, electricity and place for storage but eventually Snowball was driven out just like Trotsky and Napoleon took the charge by cheating same as Stalin.
Pearson Collection pg. 258). Social inequality can be measured through inequality of conditions, and inequality of opportunities.

In Animal Farm, a fairy story by George Orwell, farm animals overthrow the tyranny that is human rule and replace it with a tyranny of their own. The working animals live in terrible conditions, while the pigs do none and live in far better conditions than the rest of the animals. The pigs make sure that all of the animals follow what they say, all the time. They are able to manipulate the farm animals in a way that lets them have total control. The farm animals unknowingly cause themselves anguish by being ignorant of their leader’s injustice towards them.
As the pigs were the brainworkers of the farm. "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others” indicates the pigs’ greed for power and control. The fact that pigs are more equal than the rest of the farm animals shows the unfairness of the pigs’ moral principles. They are willing to do injustice to the others animals by putting their comforts and needs before the others and not being fair with the other animals. The rest of the animals follow blindly as they do not have the capacity to understand the injustice done to them.
Animal Farm Book Review Reading the book Animal Farm by George Orwell, I realised the power of ignorance especially among the masses and the ability of influential leaders to prey on and exploit the masses. The book is about some farm animals, who under the inspiration of Old Major, an old pig, led a revolution against their human caretakers because of the ills they perceived the humans had done to them.

There have been many book reviews that link the book to the earlier versions of communism and Marxism. The topic of ignorance caught
“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others” (Orwell 146). This quote in the book Animal Farm written by George Orwell shows that Animal Farm can be represented as a dystopian society. A utopia represents a perfect society where everything will be perfect while a dystopia lives under fear and confusion. Animal Farm shows a dystopian society because under the ruling of Napoleon the animals lived in fear as well as animals included confusion of the actions of the pigs. Napoleon and the other pigs always watched the other animals on the farm to make sure that no one will be going against Napoleon 's “great ruling”.
