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." Quotes: Old majors speech: Comrades _> they are friends makes them equal on some level what does this do to me?? Ive had a lkong life _ experience Speaks directly to his people Animal Farm Topic Tracking: Propaganda Propaganda 1: Old Major uses some techniques of propaganda in his speech to the animals - he identifies humans as the enemy, and attempts to unite them all against this common enemy.
They say that is for their benefit, but really that they are selfish and they want the food and drink for themselves. Without it, they would not fulfill their duties. On page 52, the author states, “Do you know what would happen if we pigs failed in our duty? Jones would come back!” The animals are being put in the position is which they fear the one that abused they came back. This type of propaganda technique is very effective because it motivates the subjects by fear.
This is proved by Napoleon using Jones and Snowball as a Physiological fear, to prevent rebellion. There is also the aspect of Physical fear towards the end of the book, when Napoleon has ruthless and bloodthirsty dogs accompanying him at all times. The pigs use the psychological fear of Jones’s return to control the animals and make sure there is no further rebellion. Squealer, who represents the propaganda during the Russian revolution, lies to the animals about the pig’s actions. To end any argument, he uses the phrase “You do not want Jones back.” For example,
Phatcharida Boonpiset 5740159822 Hate Speech in Animal Farm George Orwell 's "Animal Farm" uses hate speech as a political tool not only is it effective enough to create hatred towards targeted characters but it also can bring power and political righteousness for Napoleon, who later becomes a leader of Animal Farm. Throughout the story, Napoleon and Squealer are the ones who mostly use hate speech in public and successful in using hate speech every time. For the definition of hate speech, according to Susan Brison, “hate speech is speech that vilifies, harasses, intimidates, or incites hatred toward an individual or group on the basis of a characteristic such as race, ethnicity, religion, gender, or sexual orientation," (Brison 1) and the word “speech” is used for all forms of communication including
For instance, the animals, under the command of Napoleon and Snowball, declare the Battle of Cowshed to end humans’ dominance over them at the Manor Farm. They choose brutal methods to torment their enemies, whom they consider as tyrants. Moreover, during the battle, Boxer, a naïve and strong male horse, accidently kills a boy. This proves the recklessness of violent behavior and how people engaged in a violent conflict target everyone, including the innocent such as children. Therefore, the violent behavior of the pigs and other animals once again reminds the reader of human cruelty, which makes it impossible for a utopic society to
In the classic novel, Animal Farm, the author brings up many interesting topics relating to real life events such as manipulation. It also shows many ironic moments throughout the 141 page book. Animal Farm is a book written in 1946, and created by George Orwell. The book is about a small farm called Manor Farm, owned by Mr Jones. The animals in the farm overthrow him and rename it to Animal Farm.
Even Ralph is apart of this group, his want to be apart of the safety in the group overpowers his moral duties as a human. The final example of Ralph doing inhuman things because of fear is the scene where Jack and his followers steal Piggy’s glasses. Jack and his tribe need fire in order to cook the meat from the pigs, but the only mean of fire is the glasses. Jack and two others decide to go out and steal the glasses from Ralph’s tribe. While the heist is taking place, Ralph and his followers think it is the beast that is attacking them.
In addition to being used for eliminating uncomfortable opponents, violence is used as a tool for political oppression in Animal Farm. The situation at the Manor Farm conjures up Maximilien Robespierre 's reign of terror, where any political opponents were violently punished. Likewise, in Animal Farm, any animals that oppose the leadership of Napoleon and the pigs are brutally punished. For example, when four pigs at the farm give Napoleon a distorted account of how they kept in touch with Snowball after his exile, Napoleon decrees his dogs to “tore their throats out” (Orwell 59). Napoleon’s use of violence is so effective that it helps him to instill the idea that he “is always right” (Orwell 40) into all the other animals on the farm.
Animal Farm’s intentions were to be an allegory of the Russian Revolution and both were uses of propaganda in similar ways. In the Russian Revolution, the Bolsheviks used propaganda to declare their laws and rules to the Russian population and their authority of the Russian Revolution. In Animal Farm, propaganda was mostly used by the pigs. The use of propaganda allowed Napoleon to persuade the animals that Snowball was the reason their hard work of the windmill was wasted and that he was the reason of all the negative aspects of their lives. Also, the use of propaganda also benefited the pigs into having to do less work at times or them gaining the most apples or milk.
