When the animals learned that the pigs had been taking the milk and apples, Napoleon ordered Squealer to relieve the animals of their worries. He started yelling at the animals, “Do you know what would happen if we pigs failed in our duty? Jones would come back! Yes, Jones would come back!” (Orwell 36). Squealer’s main responsibility on the farm involves convincing the other animals that Napoleon is clearly the most qualified animal to act as their leader.
Orwell’s novella Animal Farm shows how power gets to one’s head through dishonesty. Squealer demonstrates this by tricking the animals into doing many things that they are unaware of doing themselves. He uses propaganda to help Napoleon because it will give him access to power, which he, too, desires. Squealer is able to use their stupidity against them and make them do unreasonable things. He also gives Napoleon more publicity than he deserves, which leads to him being elected as leader.
The animals are tired of Mr. Jones and how he treats them so they overrule him. Napoleon abuses the animals trust and uses his power for evil. Napoleon ends up changing everything in the farm. Many years pass and Mr. Jones also passes away. Boxer and Snowball become forgotten.
He proves his heroism by standing up to Napoleon, when the other animals were too scared to do so. Snowball is the only animal who actually objects Napoleon's actions as 'it was noticed these two were never in agreement'. Snowball was liked by everyone for his approachable, caring and energetic personality. In addition, he had a vision and future for the farm. He strived to help all the animals have a better life and for the Rebellion to spread throughout England, even conflicting with Napoleon’s ideas.
But one group lacked this level of intelligence and their lack thereof was their downfall. This is of course referring to the other, uneducated animals on the farm. They are naive and ignorant, making them extremely easy to manipulate by anyone who is cunning and deceptive. A blatant example of this occurring is when Napoleon banished another pig named Snowball. He sent his subordinate Squealer to explain why Napoleon done what he has done to the other animals.
The animals are scared of Jones because he was not feeding them so they really don’t want him to come back. That is how Napoleon cast fear over the animals so he can stay in power. When Napoleon from Orwell's Animal Farm uses ideology, propaganda, and fear, he will stay in control for a very long time. When he is in control, the animal's don’t want to become the enemy because he has more power than them, so he will start to control all the
After the rebellion, to illustrate, Snowball gives lessons on reading and writing which were shown as a “great success.” As a result it took some time for the animals to be somewhat literate in a way since some may catch on than other like for example pigs, known for being smart had the upperhand when came to literacy. Most of the animals were interested in learning just for reading the Seven Commandments. What participation they had in meetings and such can be reflected the overall growth the farm had. But sadly enough disunity becomes a source among the animals. The pigs which are known for being smart and all are now using that intelligence they have to subdue the other animals without them knowing about
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
Before Snowball was forced out of the farm, the procedure of farm was running smoothly, without a problem. There is no sign of corruption through a process of voting, every animal has the right to share ideas. However, Napoleon later realises with this power, the power of objection, he cannot move very far with his opinions, since there is always one to correct his idea. Later, he decides remove Snowball since the power that he exerts through power of negation was simply too much. Similarly, the story of to kill a mockingbird, through a characteristic of coming of age story.
Out of all the pigs, Napoleon is particularly clever and opportunistic. In the story, Napoleon symbolizes the evil dictator/tyrant that brainwashes his subjects and manipulates them into thinking a certain way, and he does this through force. He trains nine dogs as his security guards and uses them to intimidate the others and force them into listening to him. He uses death as punishment to anyone that speaks or does anything against him and what he wants. “When they had finished their confession, the dogs promptly tore their throats out,
