For example, Napoleon brainwash the animals into thinking he is always right. George Orwell demonstrates that with knowledge and education comes great power, and this can be extremely dangerous if it falls into the hands of those who are self-serving. This is shown when, the pigs only benefit themselves, they get to kill other animals and they broke the rules for their own advantage. The
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.
The animals work together to learn to read, but once Snowball and Napoleon come into conflict and want power. Napoleon being the more selfish of the two, runs off Snowball to secure his spot at power over the farm and announces that the pigs will make the decisions from now on for the good of the other animals. Showing that that human nature is corrupted by power. Napoleon secures his power even more after the windmill collapses by having the dogs kill any animal involved in the destruction of the windmill. Snowball is then blamed and Napoleon takes on the view of “you’re either with me or against me” which is a view commonly used by many dictators to scare the people under their 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 by George Orwell is a novel that represents the flaws in equality. Orwell expresses that no matter the distances that people travel, equality amongst all people will never be achieved. The Russian Revolution was caused by Karl Marx’s ideas about equality in Russia. Karl Marx is portrayed through Old Major in Animal Farm. Once the people won the Russian Revolution they went forward with Marx’s ideas and entitled it Communism.
Oppression is a circumstance in which individuals are treated unfairly and are prevented from having opportunities and freedom. In Of Mice and Men, John Steinbeck’s characters are caught in a vicious cycle of oppression. Lennie and George travel to Soledad, California to work on a ranch. Through incitement of the other oppressed characters, Lennie, who has a mind of a child, is pushed to his limits. In the end, Lennie’s intellectual disability gets the best of him when he kills Curley’s wife.
In Animal Farm and in 1984, reality is what the leaders of the dystopian societies tell their people are. The people of these oppressed societies believe in whatever their leader says. They believe so because they have not been able to think on their own because their leaders control every aspect of their lives and will control what they believe. So in order to let the people of these societies live in a way that the leaders want, they must not have the chance to start thinking if what the leaders tell them is right or wrong. In 1984, the people who were not in the Party were believing whatever the Party said, so when the Party said that the chocolate ration increased when in fact it was reduced a week before, they believed them because they had no other person to believe.
For example And so the tale of confessions and executions went on, until there was a pile of corpses lying before Napoleon's feet and the air was heavy with the smell of blood, which had been unknown there since the expulsion of Jones (Orwell #93). This quote shows that the pigs will do anything to maintain control even if it takes the lives of their fellow animals. This is a second example of how having the same representatives will lead to a path of chaos and destruction to everyone else but they have a safe paradise. The last example is that they made the animals do all the hard labor and suffer while they enjoyed life in the safety of the house. For example the pigs did not actually work, but directed and supervised the others.
The one main reason that the betrayal of Boxer could be an alternative climax is because when Napoleon sent Boxer to the knacker, everything went bad. After Boxer was sent to the knacker and killed, Squealer and Napoleon both lied saying, “The van had previously been the property of the knacker, and had been bought by the veterinary surgeon, who had not yet painted the old name out.” (page 125), the animals were relieved but this was not true. This is about the start of when Napoleon and the pigs start to turn into humans, “It was a pig walking on his hind legs.” (page 132), and changing their commandments just a little so that no animal will really notice. “All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others.” (page 134). After Napoleon had all and any threats out of the way, Boxer, his plan to truly be the ruler of Animal Farm and all animals was put to work.
