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
In the contrast, after the farm had only one ruler, Napoleon, the animals had little ration and have to give out the products. “Napoleon announced that he had decided upon a new policy. From now onwards Animal Farm would engage in trade with the neighboring farms: not, of course, for any commercial purpose, but simply in order to obtain certain materials. The needs of the windmill must override everything else, he said.” Each week, the hens had to hand in their eggs for the farm to trade things with other farms, and the cow had to turn in the milk for the dogs and pigs to drink (Ch.6). Up to these reasons, Snowball should take the place of Napoleon for he considers about others’
Trying to gain freedom on the farm, the animals obtain a leader, Napoleon, who is much more harsh and stern than the former farm owner, Mr. Jones, has ever been. Symbolizing a ruler from the Soviet Union, Joseph Stalin, Napoleon brings the farm into a hole, they have a hard time getting out of. Napoleon kills various animals, and has also broken the Seven commandments the animals promise to abide by. In the beginning, the farm was run by Mr. Jones, who is later overpowered by the animals on the farm. To gain power, Napoleon starts to earn their trust by making it seem as if he is a trustworthy comrade.
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.
Another example from the book is when Napoleon uses accusation to bring misunderstanding to animals about Snowball being Jones’s spy. “He was Jones’s secret agent all the time” (79). This explanation means Napoleon betray Snowball for his own benefit, to become the only leader. This is significant to use of accusation because Napoleon uses Snowball to get more support and to gain more power. In the book, it is shown as animals who opposes Napoleon are the real brave
Napoleon sent him to make sure that all of the animals stayed in order. The pigs established their authority and are able to influence the animals’ opinions. Squealer brings dystopian propaganda into Animal Farm by misleading the animals with false statements and invalid scientific
This is the main plot of the novel "Animal Farm" by George Orwell. How does a tyrannical leader such as Napoleon stay in power during such hard times? Napoleon manages to stay in control of the animals by using these three key methods scapegoating, brutality, and revisionism. Napoleon's scapegoating of a former animal on the farm helps
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.
Wouldn’t have the other animals at some point seen him becoming a dictator and stopped him? It is my belief that Napoleon gradually took power in small increments over a long period of time until he gained complete and total control over Animal Farm. First, the pigs started to take the milk and apples for themselves. Then they move into the farmhouse and start sleeping in the beds. Napoleon takes nine puppies and trains them to become his bodyguards and soldiers, enabling him to chase Snowball out, leaving him the sole leader of Animal Farm.
