In “The 3 Little Pigs”, the wolf, along with all the pigs, are all personified and hold human-like ways of thinking and acting. In this story, the wolf is a clearly thought out individual, capable of making his own decisions, where his actions are simply evil due to being a monstrous character used to teach a lesson to the target audience (children). As proven by sources A, C, and D, the normality of the behaviors exhibited by the wolf is not excused, nor relevant to the moral of “The 3 Little Pigs”, being a children’s tale where the wolf if depicted as a villainous character, with a human-like moral compass, regardless of his species. In the preponderance of fairy tales used to serve lessons or morals to children, “The 3 Little Pigs” is very conventional, with no requirement to be overthought. With the three pigs building their homes out of different materials, the wolf’s role is to try to blow their houses down, and ultimately murder them.
In this tragic novel. The power of love and comfort outweighs all moral principles and the willingness of the animals to follow blindly even when those they follow are corrupt. Napoleon, Squealer, the pigs and the dogs exert power and the other animals such as Boxer, Clover, Benjamin, Muriel, and the sheep are willing to follow blindly. The pigs had decided that the apples and the milk will be set aside for them. As the pigs were the brainworkers of the farm.
“Being free” is just a delusion that is instilled into a human’s nature since they were little. In Annie Dillard’s “Living like Weasels” the author is trying to portray her marvelous confrontation with a wild weasel, and gives her opinion on what she notices. “The weasel lives in necessity and we live in choice” (8). No one is truly free, since one can not only be a prisoner to material possessions, but also their wants and desires do drive them. Furthermore, in Human Traits in the Animal, John Burroughs does a great job on describing how humans and animals have some of the same characteristics.
Over the course of the book, Napoleon converts the farm into a place only benefiting the pigs, breaking the very beliefs it was started on. In Animal Farm, power was misused by the pigs using their intelligence to their advantage, mistreating the other animals, and changing the commandments. The pigs knew they were the smartest animals on the farm and they had no shame in using it to their benefit. This is especially true with Squealer, a persuasive pig who intentionally confuses the other animals. The pigs on the farm take all the milk and the best apples.
As Napoleon represents Joseph Stalin and Snowball, Leon Trotsky, it is natural that these two pigs have different personalities. Napoleon is a more fierce-looking character than Snowball, who is known to get his own way. Snowball, in the other hand, is more vivacious and talkative than Napoleon. These two pigs have different views over the Seven Commandments and how other animals should be governed and treated. Besides their differences, we can say that both Napoleon and Snowball wanted the rebellion to happen and supported the idea of Animalism and, consequently, the expurgation of humans from the power.
Napoleon's scapegoating of a former animal, a pig named Snowball helps keep him in control of the other animals and brings the crosshairs away from him and the other pigs. Napoleon's brutality is not an unknown characteristic to the other animals, which helps Napoleon scare and keeps in check those who oppose his tyrannical reign. Finally, Napoleons more cunning method which could be the most effective, the revisionism of the history and rules that the animals live by and draw inspiration from. This puts into light how such gruesome dictators can control their people with such cruel and fallible
Napoleon. Animalism begins to fail and everything is done for the benefit of the pigs. The motto “Four legs good, two legs bad,” shifts to “Four legs good, two legs better.” as the pigs begin to become human. Originally, all animals were equal but by the end of the book “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” Like in Stalinist Russia, Animal farm was being ruled through terror. Animalism failed.
Only puppies and pigs can live in the house, sleep in the bed, eat apples and cookies and have all of the best things. As the history is developing, Napoleon is getting more and more like a dicator. He slowly begin to being superior but did not act like a dictator. Moreover, he broke some rules, he’s in contact with humans, and he had hours of works, and he killed aniamsl, and change the only commandment for “4 legs good, 2 legs better”. He also think that “Every animals are equal, but some are more equal then others.” 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.
Very slowly, Napoleon begins to take advantage of the animals, by reducing their food, overworking them, lying to them, and even leading some of them to death. Napoleon even goes as far as instating a rule, "ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL, BUT SOME ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS" (Chapter 10, pg. 112). Napoleon breaks rules of the commandments and adjusts them to fit his actions. Towards the end of the story, he has completely taken full control and all of the pigs exchange conversation with humans casually and even begin to walk on their hind legs.
