Instead of discussing matters with him, Napoleon ordered a pack of guard dogs to attack and chase him off the farm (17). This shows that Napoleon had waited for the right moment to overpower the other pig. This also shows that the guard dogs had been told a false truth to or bribed with benefits if they had gone with the plan and attacked Snowball without a second thought. In addition, Napoleon continues to change rules and make new

The pigs take something very valuable away from the animals on Animal Farm. The song they sang that inspired them and gave them the reminder of freedom is now forbidden for them to sing. This depicts how Squealer is taking away the past and now trying to twist the animals views of Animal Farm. Throughout the novel Squealer always adjusted to the techniques that he thinks the animals would best listen and agree to, whether it would be to make the animals fear or to transform the
Originally, the commandments were made to create ‘fairness’ and ‘equality’ among the comrades. However, the novel reveals how “all animals are equal, but some are more equal than others” (Orwell, page 134) through the commandments, as Napoleon uses his skillful rhetoric to get away with breaking the very commandments that every animals are suppose to follow, while the other animals are punished for not doing so. For example, in chapter 8 when the pigs purchase a brewery to to produce and later drink the alcohol, even though the fifth commandment says “no animals shall drink alcohol” (Orwell, page 25), which shows that the pigs are hypocrites. Thus, the novel shows the difference in intelligence between the animals that made it easy for Napoleon to manipulate and make them obey
As the Animal Farm rebellion grows more successful, the pigs and especially Napoleon, who takes the role of leader, begins to realize that he could exploit the rest of the animals for the pigs’ wants.

First, they’ve experienced violence under the tyranny of their leaders. It is said that the Animals where being executed by Napeleon for those who will be against his will.

This implicates that the leaders of the said book are being abusive to their power and violent to his constituents. In addition, the story also shows the naiveté of Billy Budd and Boxer in Animal farm believing that their leaders are always right.
And it’s getting worse when he selled boxer to a slaughterer to have money for buying more alcohol, even if all of the barley is already reserve to the pigs. He begin to act like a human, meet them, smoke, drink alcohol and wear clothes. To show that all of the goal of the first rebellion never continue that way, they change the song Beast of England and the name of the farm for “Manor farm”. Napoleon didn’t do what the revolution had wanted. The animals follow him, respect him even if they didn’t have to.
(page 141) The quote shows that Napoleon is basically Mr. Jones in a different generation. Napoleon acts just like Mr Jones, and takes their work for money. Also, Mr Jones underfed the animals, and later Napoleon also did! On page 92, the author wrote, “Napoleon read out to them: The production of every class of food has increased by 300 percent.
Government by coalition often fails or one member will find a way to gain an advantage. “The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which” (139). It is shown how the pigs start out with Old Major's vision, but are exactly like the people (oppressive) by the end of the book. The pigs become like the humans by the end of the novel. Throughout the novel they have revealed similar traits; they want to seize power and maintain control over all the other animals.
As time passed new things were established and other things were forgotten. Later in the book it is revealed that after the rebellion all the animals started working except for the pigs. “The pigs did not actually work, but directed and supervised the others. With their superior knowledge it was natural that they should assume the leadership “(C3 pg27). Orwell clearly wants to tell the readers that the pigs are better in any shape or form.
The windmill is first brought to everyone 's attention by Snowball, who researches on how to build one and draws out the plans. While this occurs, Napoleon slowly takes full control over the farm by eliminating Snowball. The pigs try to make Snowball look guilty and they want the working animals to dislike Snowball at all costs.
