Therefore the animals are told to work harder for him.The animals don 't realize that they are being used to benefit the pigs. In fact, Squealer puts fear into each of the animals to manipulate and persuade them to obey Napoleon.Everytime the animals question Napoleon, Squealer explains “Do you know that would happen if we pigs failed in out duty?Jones would come back! Yes Jones would come back!Surely comrades” ( Page 38).Napoleon always changes the rules and Squealer enforces them.

He whips the animals and treats them like slaves. Farmer Jones takes the resources from the animals like eggs, milk, and kills them if he wants to eat something. He is basically torturing the animals. As well with Napoleon, known as the terror of mankind after Mr. Jones is overthrown by the animals often Snowball takes place. Despite the fact that, Snowball is actually a good leader, he still acts like a dictator because of his way of controlling the animals.
Often times in a communist society, a leader’s use of language can lead to abuse of power. In George Orwell’s Animal Farm, the farm leaders, the pigs, use unknown language, invoke scare tactics, and create specific laws, thereby enabling them to control other animals, to suit their greedy desires, and to perform actions outside their realm of power. Because of the pigs’ use of broad language, implementation of scare tactics, and creation and manipulation of laws, they are able to get away with avoiding laws and convincing other animals into believing untrue stories and lies that are beneficial to the pigs. Napoleon, Snowball, and Boxer, George Orwell’s main characters in his novel Animal Farm, illustrate how the misuse of power can lead to

There is a common expression that says men are pigs, and in Animal Farm, Orwell shows us how pigs turn into men. For example, “The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which” (Orwell p. 141). Orwell portrays the pigs as leaders that control the animals into believing that what they as pigs are doing is right which leads to corruption. So people’s ignorance contributes to social oppression in that quote from Orwell. Administration is to utilise someone in a skillful way.
The novel the ‘Lord of the Flies’, by William Golding has a main theme that touches on the human condition – ‘the struggle between civilisation and savagery’. Golding advances in his writing techniques, showing symbolism and characterisation throughout. Golding chose to create a ‘Beast’ that would soon cause an emotional ‘rip’ between the boys. This beast is a symbol for the evil and the malice that resides within the children. Characterisation is shown with Ralph displaying different concepts like leadership and order, Piggy, intelligence and reason, Simon kindness and Jack, savagery.
Power and control are one of the most important themes in Animal Farm, Orwell shows that in some of the characters in the novel particularly the pigs who are corrupted by the power they have, this thought is demonstrated by comparing the beginning and the ending of the novel, after the Rebellion the animals are free from the tyranny of Mr Jones and seek to establish equality amongst themselves. However, this equality is short-lived and the pigs begin to bend the rules until inequality returns to the farm “ All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others” (97), the animals had worse living condition with the pigs than with Mr Jones, but at least they thought that they were free. Animals wanted to be independent, work for themselves
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,
