This proves the theme of power corrupts because when the animals read that they now accept the fact that they are at a lesser value than the pigs. The pigs take advantage of that so they can ultimately do anything they want. The pigs made
For example, when Boxer, who has literally worked himself to death for the Farm, is carted off in a van to the "hospital," and Benjamin reads out "Horse Slaughterer" on the one side of the van. Some of the animals noticed this, and realised that Boxer has been sold and send to death. But when Squealer gives his fake explanation about the vet who didn't have time to paint over the slaughterer's old sign, the animals were enormously relieved to hear this. Later on, the pigs organised a banquet in Boxer's honour. The joy and song comming from the farmhouse proved that the pigs found some way to avquire the money to buy themselves another case of whisky.
“It is not wisdom but authority that makes a low.” Thomas Hobbes’ quote reveals that the world is all about authority and how powerful people are. In other words, to be able to rule, wisdom is not essential. However, authority is crucial. This quote relates to George Orwell’s Animal Farm as it represents the theme of power by the pigs that use propaganda, intimidation and false informations to take over the farm and to control the animals.

Language can be manipulated as an instrument of control. In Animal Farm, by George Orwell, the pigs gradually twist and distort a rhetorical world of socialist revolution to justify their behavior and to keep the other animals in the dark. "People say they love truth, but in reality they want to believe that which they love is true."

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.
In the beginning of the book, animal farm was run by a human named Jones. All the animals believed that they were treated unfairly and ended up rebelling against him. The farm however, was still in horrible shape, so Napoleon stepped in and told everyone that he would make it better. The animals listened to Napoleon because they weren’t sure what else to do, and they thought that the pig was truly helping out the farm and making their lives better. Nicholas was able to win over his people in the same way.
At last, they could not stand it no longer” (38). The men mistreat the animals for way too long, and to the animals being unfed was the last straw in their miserable lives. Even while only eating the bare nutrients in order to survive, the men still expect the animals to perform their jobs to their full potential.

The men then enter the shed with whips to punish the animals, and “this was one more than the hungry animals could bear..they flung themselves upon their tormentors” (38).
The atrocious leaders of AF separated themselves from the subjects, changed the rules that they broke and lied about it, killed animals, overworked the animals and lied to the subjects about food, Snowball, humans and what they were doing. The core values of AF are to do work. The core values of WD are to stay alive, be happy and be free. In AF, they get to the point about ¾ of the way through the book when the animals are woken up, they get food, go to work, get food and go to bed. That is a pretty dreary life.
He declares, “We must be willing to be revolted when science—or for that matter any human activity—crosses the line of human decency, and we must fight to retain the sensitivity that is otherwise so easily eroded.”(139) The “human decency” here means that with the development of science, the ways people use science to gain profit for them are more mature than before. However, people use science without any judge. People ignore the respect of other creatures because people think it is reasonable to kill other animals and eat them. However, there still have several people stand out and claim for those poor creatures. Wallace writes in a sympathetic way when he connects the feeling of human and other creatures, “The reason it seems extreme to me appears to be that I believe animals are less morally important than human being.”(509) Since people think humans are the wisest creature in this world, the most important thing for humans lives in this world is to enjoy everything.
“Abu wants us to be scared, responding with hatred and anger will only allow us to act in the same ignorance that has made Abu what Abu is.” Said Paris the pig. Within a second Abu crashed into the house growling and foaming at the mouth, at the sight of the panicking animals. His deathly nails protruding from his paws, he exclaims, “who’s first? !” He stood face to face with the three pigs, his teeth shimmering in the light, stained with blood. As the pigs stood with no fear whatsoever, the wolf stood, confused, “no fear?” questioned the wolf.
