Lenin started this revolution for the good of the people. Unfortunately, just like animal farm, the leaders slowly descended into communism. The people of Russian ended up worse than before the revolution. Everyone agrees that the animals and Russians revolted and both clearly share similar characteristics in three similar people: Mr. Jones and Czar Nicholas II, Napoleon and Joseph Stalin, and the dogs and KGB. First, Mr. Jones and Czar Nicholas II behaved
However, pigs changed the Marxism into "All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others", which showed that they have privileged on themselves. Similar things happened in the communist regime in China and Soviet Union. First, Mao started class struggle and to clear the opposition voice. In order to consolidate the power, Mao categorized the society into the proletarian class and the ‘class enemies’. ‘Red categories’ represented the proletariat including poor and lower-middle peasants, workers, revolutionary soldiers, revolutionary cadres, dependants of Revolutionary Martyrs; whereas ‘Black categories’ meant the class enemies, which included landlords, rich peasants, reactionaries, bad elements, rightists, traitors and spies.
The pigs became selfish and violent, changing the animal 's view until it was almost completely different from the original. A very similar thing happened with communism, during Joseph Stalin 's rule he left a majority of the country helpless and to fend for themselves. He would sentence people to death for showing the smallest bit of resistance against his newly formed
“Playwright August Wilson was born Frederick August Kittel in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on April 27, 1945. His mother, Daisy Wilson, was of African-American heritage. His father was a German immigrant named Frederick Kittel” (August Wilson Biography).

Vladimir Uylanov came from a middle class family. His dad was a bureaucrat and his mom came from a family of very noble, landowning family.

"However Nicholas soon retracted these concessions..." ( March 15, 1917 Czar Nicholas II Abdicates). One of his accomplishment he had in reference to the revolution is making the Soviet Union angry, and the Bolsheviks decided he was to be forced down. He dissolved the Duma just after the an upper chamber and elected Duma had been set up. He influenced the Bolsheviks by giving them more power, and that is what they want now. They force him to step down, after that they had him and family
Stalin used the NKVD to go around and kill those who did not want to give up their lands or corroborate with him. In the text it states, “Joseph Stalin did something called the Great Purge where he sent people to prison camps and killed anyone who disagreed with him,”(Kim, Mirea, Animal Farm, sites.google.com, February 16, 2012). Joseph Stalin was a very powerful man and would do anything to stay on top even it meant that he would have to get his hands dirty, which would have meant that people were too afraid to speak up. Another way that Napoleon and Joseph Stalin made others feel afraid of them was that, they had the ability to
George Orwell portrays Joseph Stalin as Napoleon the pig in the book Animal Farm as a ruthless tyrant that manipulates the public with a false hope in order to have things in his favor. The main cause of the Russian Revolution was due to the failing leadership under an autocracy. Before the Russian Revolution, the working class would endure poor working conditions and suffer from poor wages. “As a result, there were many strikes and constant conflicts between the workers and the police” (“The Russian Revolution of
As the novel progressed, the violence escalated as the pigs become more and more corrupt and power-hungry. The turning point for violence was when Napoleon used the dogs to relinquish Snowball’s control. At this point, the conflict shifts from the animals versus Jones to Napoleon versus the animals. From this point on, the animals live blindly under the control of Napoleon and the pigs. Much like Mr. Jones used the whip to assert dominance and control over the animals, the pigs assume his role as the head of the farm.
In Animal Farm the animals are brainwashed by the authority figures Squealer, Napoleon and Snowball. Squealer’s influential speeches brainwash the animals to doing what he says, Napoleon’s forceful commands brainwash the animals into doing what he says and, Snowball’s intelligent mind brainwashes the animals that he is a passionate leader and makes the animals do what he says. The authority figures corrupt their power by managing the animals viciously for needs. The three ways they showed this was by: Not following commandments, threatening the animals and reducing food, taking credit over the
