Throughout the novel “Animal farm” George Orwell, there are changes that lead to corruption. The 3 animals Napoleon, Boxer,and Squealer are responsible for the downfall of the farm. Napoleon being in charge made him do things to only benefit himself. Boxer always agrees with what 's wrong and is being used. Squealer convinced everyone to obey Napoleon even if they don 't agree.
In the end, the name ‘Animal farm’ was abolished and changed to Manor Farm, the original name by Napoleon. Napoleon and his pigs also join arms with the humans who were believed to be the animal’s enemy in the beginning by Old Major and the
Even at a time when the only thing the animals can feel is despair, Boxer voices his continued loyalty to his leader, Napoleon, the pig behind this sickening act. He even says he’ll do more to improve the farm, and prevent a situation like this from happening again. With Boxer’s growing popularity, the reader finds that the supreme leader, Napoleon, feels threatened by Boxer. The animals obviously treat Napoleon like a king, because the animals
He was the oldest animal. After a strange dream that he had, he gave them a speech about rebellion and he enlightened them that they could live better than the way they are treated in the farm. Old Major is a portrait of intellectual idealist whose ideas are taken, twisted and used as a base for dictatorships by tyrants like Napoleon. Napoleon: After Old Major 's death Napoleon manipulated the animals with his lies, he changed the Seven Commandments slowly for his party 's benefits, he slowly metamorphosed into a human and he enslaved the other animals by promising a scenario of utopia in which all animals would be equal. Beyond these fallacies his ideology was to feed on the other animals to establish a totalitarian system in which equality would never exist.
Boxer epitomizes all of the best qualities of the exploited working classes: dedication, loyalty, and a huge capacity for labor. He also, however, suffers from what Orwell saw as the working class’s major weaknesses: a naïve trust in the good intentions of the intelligent and an inability to recognize even the most flagrant forms of political corruption. Exploited by the pigs as much or more than he had been by Mr. Jones, Boxer represents all of the invisible labor that undergirds the political drama being carried out by the elites. Boxer’s death dramatically illustrates the extent of the pigs’ betrayal. He serves as the force that holds Animal Farm together.
Power. It is the world’s most dangerous asset anyone can hold on to. It can be used for prosperity or for a complete destruction depending on the person. As the famous Lord Acton 's quote says, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Animal Farm stands for the best example that can display this matter in a clearer and funnier version. It portrays the 1917 Russian Revolution atmosphere with the replacement of Russia into Animal Farm.
He then explores how the pigs use rhetoric and propaganda to establish themselves in power and take control of the farm. Even if the animals were exploited under the pigs they didn’t opposed them, this i shown especially by Boxer the horse, who has great physical power but he don’t use it to escape from the control of the pigs, he is always supporting Napoleon, “Napoleon is always right!” (pag ? ) they were living in wort conditions under the pigs but they were free they made them believe that they were free, this novel shows clearly how power can change someone and how easily you get addicted to it, the pigs were acting and becoming more human like just to achieve the power, they would do everything even kill their own comrades to keep that The pigs learn to walk on two legs and have adopted all of Mr Jones ' bad habits that Old Major told them to avoid in his speech. They invite the humans they once fought against to the farm. Napoleon declares that the farm will be called 'Manor Farm ' again, the animals watching the meeting cannot tell the difference between the humans and
The pigs and Mr. Jones in Animal Farm shows that power corrupts absolutely. Power often comes from greed; pleasure and that it corrupt the society. The corruption of power in Animal Farm contributes to the Russian revolution and it occurs because of human nature, thirst of power and
Orwell’s book showed his opinion on the government of Russia. His writing put the point across that dictators will not be best for the future. He wanted a government that was not just one person was in control of everything you could say or do. Orwell was not afraid to have his opinion out in the open for everyone to hear. In Animal Farm, two themes were shown throughout the book.
An example of the propaganda they use on Animal Farm is when Boxer always says, “Napoleon is always right”(Orwell 61). The pigs use this to their advantage by always referring to it when the pigs are being questioned about somethings that the animals don’t seem to be sure about. That is harmful to themselves because they are promoting something that is not helping them but they think that it is. Another saying that is common on the farm is, “Four legs good, two legs bad”(Orwell 48). This saying is used in a way to promote the pigs because they stay are on four legs, making them better so they get listened to.
