One reason is because he is so big and powerful. He could take down Napoleon, the dogs, and the rest of the pigs easily, even Clover, the other cart horse. Boxer Another reason Napoleon feels threatened by Boxer is because well everyone loves Boxer. He is admired by all the animals and everyone looks up to him, “...universally respected…” (page 5), “...devoted to Boxer…” (page 5). Everyone looks up to Boxer because he is such a hard worker, even though he’s one of the dumbest animals on the farm.
Napoleon considers the other animals who oppose his rule as treaters and kills them These are representations of Stalin’s purges that began before the Second World War and continued into the 1950s. Throughout Animal Farm, the animals needed to increase their resources, they undergo negotiations with other farms. then, a nearby farm known as Pinchfield became the best supplier of resources for Napoleon.Nonetheless, to symbolize Hitler and Russian involvement in the second World War Orwell stated that Pinchfield turns against the animal farm. George Orwell’s writing is short, simple, and to the point. He does not spend much time using figurative language or explaining a character’s feelings.
“‘...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. Another way he uses propaganda to stay in control is when he makes up various medals and awards and gives himself all of them. Although the animals view Napoleon as their savior, he is a ruthless ruler. He uses propaganda, fear, and the principles of Animalism to keep a tight grip on the farm. He uses propaganda to influence the animal’s opinions.
Boxer was the first animal to wake up and the last animal to sleep. He worked day and night restlessly under the guidance of Napoleon. He was the greatest supporter of animal farm and Animalism, the ideology that runs the animal farm. However, he had to sacrifice his own animal right for the sake of animal farm and the better life of all of us. Also, he was loyal retainer of Napoleon.
Orwell satirizes the system of communism built on the belief that the autocracy is necessary until the superior beings take over the control, in this case the pigs. On Orwell's farm the autocracy was never the case - since the animals had banished Jones, immediately some of them proved to be more convincing, more leader-like, more capable, more intelligent and stronger than the others. Moreover, one of the most significant parts in the novel, also the law on which the animals' autocracy was based on were the Seven Commandments, enumerating the rules which would
“Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity” (Martin Luther King Jr.). People’s ignorance can contribute to political and social oppression. In the book Animal Farm, by George Orwell, the animals are attempting to work together to break free from mankind. What the animals on the farm don’t realize is that they are becoming persecuted due to the fact that they have very little knowledge, they are being tricked by the pigs, and they had not been willing to connect the idea that the pigs are becoming more like humans soon enough. The animals on the farm had very little knowledge.
In the novel, all social classes of animals are discontented because of the treatment they get from their owner, Mr. Jones. On the farm, Jones “‘sets them [the animals] to work’” to grow and gather the resources on the farm. They also breed more animals, which are then taken away. So, “‘he gives back to them the bare minimum that will prevent them from starving, and he keeps the rest for himself’” (8). Jones cares about what he makes from the farm, meaning that the animals are not well cared for because he is only concerned about himself.
Napoleon could control all of the animals with the words he spoke after the battle, some animals would say, “ If Comrade Napoleon says it, it must be right”(40), or “Napoleon is always right”(40). Napoleon told all of the animals to go around saying that to make him even more famous. Mao Zedong did this too by letting the people of China say good things about him and spreading it on through a process he called “Hundred Followers Campaign”. Both dictators let people have free speech only if it was to let them say acceptable things about their leader. Another thing is that the cult of personality grew to immeasurable proportions with Mao Zedong and Napoleon as
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.
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
