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. “He carried a whip in his trotter.” (page 133). “Four legs good, two legs better!...” (page 134). In the novel, Napoleon does win, just like in the Russian Revolution how Stalin won. In the end, Napoleon even changed the name back to its original name, Manor farm.
“But...the dogs sitting round Napoleon let out deep, menacing growls, and the pigs fell silent and sat down again.” This phrase describes Napoleon’s dogs after they chased Snowball off the farm. He used the dogs to scare the other animals into doing what he told them without hesitation. This is just one of the ways he uses fear to stay in control. Napoleon also uses propaganda to remain in power. “‘...Bravery isn’t enough’, said Squealer, ‘Loyalty and obedience are more important, and as of the Battle of Cowshed, I believe the time will come when we shall find his part in it much exaggerated.’” This quote describes how Napoleon uses his position to change the opinions of the animals by belittling Snowball.
For the sake of the animal’s livelihood, Snowball should take the place of Napoleon and stay in the Animal Farm to govern the animals. First, Snowball should take the place of Napoleon for he appears more creative than Napoleon. He came up with many ideas that helped the farm. For example, he proposed to build a windmill. That gave
Snowball was run out of the farm and made seem a horrible and untrustworthy leader to make Napoleon seem better and more “on top”. At times, Napoleon even gave himself more superior titles like “our Leader, Comrade Napoleon, Father of all Animals, Terror of Mankind, Protector of the Sheep-fold, Ducklings’ Friend, and the like…. It had become usual to give Napoleon the credit for every successful achievement and every stroke of good fortune.”. Napoleon made every good thing that happened his fault but any mistake, or bad thing that happened, was at the fault of Snowball, although he was run off of the
According to Document C, Napoleon and Squealer both agree that the milk and apples should go toward the pigs because they benefit their health. They also said that milk and apples would make the pigs stronger so they could fight off farmer Jones and the other humans. Napoleon only said this because he believed that the pigs had more power and more of an advantage over the other animals. Napoleon was able to stay in charge of the farm was by using Animalism. Document A state's “ Squealer...was sprawling beside it, and near at hand there lay a lantern, a paint-brush, and an overturned pot of white paint...None of the animals...except for old Benjamin...seemed to understand...” That quote means that Napoleon forced squealer to go change the commandments to benefit the pigs.
Both Napoleon and Snowball have distinct intentions when in front of the other animals. Snowball behaves in a way in which is beneficial towards the community of animal farm. Furthermore, during the meeting in the big barn, Snowball was full of “plans for innovations”, in an altruistic tone conveying his yearning to ameliorate animal living standards. Snowball demonstrates diligence to in order to improve the Farm’s infrastructure. Moreover, Snowball busied himself with organising the other animals into what he called “Animal Committees”, a refined visual image that consists of reading and writing classes to boost animal education in the farm.
Napoleon who was in control in Animal farm is similar to Joseph Stalin. One similarity between Napoleon and Stalin is they would eliminate anyone who would disagree with them or rebel against their rules. In the book Animal Farm Napoleon gets rid of Snowball because they didn't agree on what to do for the farm and he was worried all the animals would side with Snowballs ideas not Napoleons. In the book it states, “They dashed straight for Snowball, who only sprang from his place just in time to escape their snapping jaws,” (Orwell 53). This shows that napoleon felt threatened by Snowball and was worried he would take over the farm so he used his dogs to try to kill Snowball so Napoleon could have no choice but to rule the farm.
Snowball emerges as a fervent ideologue who throws himself heart and soul into the attempt to spread Animalism worldwide and to improve Animal Farm’s infrastructure. His idealism, however, leads to his downfall. Relying only on the force of his own logic and rhetorical skill to gain his influence, he proves no match for Napoleon’s show of brute force. Although Orwell depicts Snowball in a relatively appealing light, he refrains from idealizing his character, making sure to endow him with certain moral flaws. For example, Snowball basically accepts the superiority of the pigs over the rest of the animals.
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
Napoleon has made himself the dictator of the farm, he even has his own security dogs. It became evident that Napoleon was the leader of the animals as soon as he slaughtered the animals at the yard of the farm house, the reason being: communication with Snowball. The killing of animals shows another abuse of power by Napoleon and directly violates Commandment #6 which states that “no animal shall kill any other animal.” (Orwell 25) Napoleon violated this rule to instill fear and maintain power over the other animals. This signaled to the other animals that they should not cross Napoleon or disobey
