In the novel, Animal Farm, the pigs are substandard examples of good leaders because they are self-serving hypocrites. This is an allegorical story to what happened in the Russian Revolution. Napoleon, the main leader of the farm, represents Stalin, the leader of Russia in the revolution. They were both corrupt leaders that manipulated their own people. For example, Napoleon brainwash the animals into thinking he is always right.
The animal farm then starts to fail. The farm fails because of the pigs not being fair to the other animals, plus the animals being too dumb to realize it. The other animals made mistakes, by not speaking up when they thought something was wrong. Animal Farm starts to fail because pigs start to make power grabs that screws the “perfect life” vision the animals have. These reasons, including many more, are why Animal Farm fails.
How Does Napoleon Stay In Power? Like the Russians wanted to overthrow Stalin, the animals wanted to overthrow Jones. In the book Animal Farm, Napoleon the pig wanted to gain power over the farm he lived on, Manor Farm. But, the farm was controlled by the malicious Mr. Jones. So to gain control, he and his fellow animals overthrew him and his farm.
As the novel develops, the boys are left to their own devices and morals to survive on the island. Golding implies that when this happens, people naturally revert to cruelty, savagery and a human evil that he believes is in everyone. When Jack kills the mother pig, he is in great triumph over outwitting a living thing. This shows that he has become a savage through his time on the island, and his inner evil has taken over him. It also shows that Jack has become more violent over time, as if killing pigs is normal to him.
Throughout the novella Animal Farm, the pigs become the very essence of what they they hate at the beginning of the book, man. The pigs begin to do human-like things such as trading with humans and walking on their hind legs and morph into the image of man that Orwell suggests, that human nature is corrupted by power and greed. At the beginning of the novella the animals believe in the idea that “four legs, good, two legs bad”. The animals use this idea to run off Mr. Jones in favor of Old Major’s ideal utopia. The animals work together to learn to read, but once Snowball and Napoleon come into conflict and want power.
The change of the commandments was one of the primary changes in the Farm. The pigs corruption change the farm immensely too. Napoleon, which used false propaganda to tell lies about Snowball, was a cruel leader In the beginning of the book, all the animals wanted the revolution to happen, because they wanted to overthrow Mr. Jones, which would lead them freedom. At a first moment, all the pigs wanted the transformation to happen, but after they became leaders, they made extreme changes. The most radical one, was to change the seven commandments of animalism.
Animal Farm: How Napoleon Stayed In Charge Having superiority over something is not easy. If put in the wrong hands, having superiority could destroy something as big as a country. In the story Animal Farm by: George Orwell a pig named Napoleon wanted to establish superiority over Manor Farm, but farmer Jones was in charge of the farm. So, Napoleon and the other animals held a rebellion against farmer Jones and the other humans then the animals kicked the humans off the farm and Napoleon slowly turns into a dictator over the farm. Napoleon stayed in charge of the farm by using fear, propaganda, and Animalism.
The pigs in Animal Farm are given the most human-like attributes from leadership to standing on two legs. They even use the phrase, “four legs good, two legs bad,” throughout their rebellion against the farmer, yet change it to, “four legs good, two legs better,” in an act of tyranny to save themselves from hypocrisy when the pigs begin to stand on two legs like humans. The pigs continuously degrade the other animals while lifting themselves up on pedestals of near perfection to solidify their following. These actions are of course attributed to the governmental structure of communist Russia, but the actual pigs grew to be more human over time. This transformation and use of pigs is not coincidental with Oryx and Crake because the fusion of humans with pigs, although in a different context, was done once before with Orwell.
Since the animals had a strong distrust of all humans, the act of sending a loyal friend to be medically treated by them was against all logical thinking. Even if it could have been the best option, they did not want to take a chance with the outside world. The outside world terrified the animals to the point where any association with it was unbearable. The illusion of a perfect world caused the citizens of the farm to fear an unfamiliar world and oppressive rulers who monitored all affairs on the farm, destroy the society in Animal Farm. Animal Farm is an allegory for the Russian Revolution, harshly criticizing the strong dystopian features present in the novel.
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.
