Body paragraph one showed how fear mongering was used to scare the animals. For example, the vicious dogs and Jones comeback were used to scare the animals if they did not obey Napoleon. Body paragraph two showed how Napoleon blamed Snowball of all the predicaments and disasters they have faced so that he would stay in power; Snowball was blamed of the windmill ruin and associating with Jones. The third body paragraph about pigs manipulating animals to make them obey Napoleon, by making them believe that pigs should not work and that they deserve to sleep in beds to make up for the pigs’ mistakes. The animals thought that Animalism was going to be executed.
The lesson shown in this story is that power can corrupt a society. Old Major, the wisest pig, says that after he dies the animals should rebel against the farmer and start their own government so that every animal can be happy and be equal. Old Major dies, a new leader must be chosen. Two pigs (Napoleon and Snowball) decide to be leaders and try to get the animals’ votes. Napoleon sends the guard dogs to attack Snowball, after that he runs away and doesnt come back.. Napoleon then become ruler, and is said to be a very good, wise pig.
This shows that napoleon felt threatened by Snowball and was worried he would take over the farm so he used his dogs to try to kill Snowball so Napoleon could have no choice but to rule the farm. Like Napoleon, Stalin would get rid of anyone who would rebel against his rules or disagree with what he was doing...According to the article "Stalin Banishes Trotsky" by the Editors of History.com, “He ordered someone to kill Trotsky.” This evidence
I like the pigs, especially Napoleon and Snowball. Napoleon was the pig who emerges as the leader of Animal Farm after the Rebellion. Based on Joseph Stalin, Napoleon uses military force (his nine loyal attack dogs) to intimidate the other animals and consolidate his power. In his supreme craftiness, Napoleon proves more treacherous than his counterpart, Snowball. Snowball was the pig who wanted Old Major’s dream to live on.
Napoleon mislead and misinformed the animals, under his power. The animals had their own opinions and beliefs but weren’t educated enough to propose them. The farm came to know that “some animals are more equal than others”(134), their last state was as bad as their first. Napoleon formed an alliance with the human enemy to establish his personal dictatorship, the ruling of the pigs became more and more indistinguishable from their human neighbors. “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 tell which was which” (141) Orwell’s message again, is that history can repeat itself, we must be careful and prevent that from happening, or we could end up in same situation as before, like the animals
After he exiled Snowball off of Animal Farm the food supply gets was a little less for the animals than when Mr. Jones was around. Napoleon had kept majority of the food for him and other pigs to eat. This point goes back to how Napoleon was selfish showing that in Animal Farm power does corrupt those who posses it. In the book Animal Farm Orwell shows us that power corrupts those who possess it through the character Napoleon by showing us he is selfish, manipulative, and abusive. Napoleon likes to do things and worry for his own good and not worry that much about his citizens.
George Orwell wrote, “Man serves the interests of no creature except himself.” This quote is important because it explains the cause of the misery of a corrupted form of government, as well as depicting the context for the cause and creation of a dystopia. In Animal Farm by George Orwell, animalism was constituted after the animal revolution that overthrew Mr. Jones and ended his tyrannical rule. However, Napoleon gained power over Animal Farm and created a totalitarian rule. Napoleon used propaganda to maintain and expand his power. In “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut, set in 2081, the Amendments made to the Constitution created a civil society where everyone was equal.
The first similarity between Napoleon and Stalin is that they were both in leadership positions. However, one of the greatest correlations is the way that they treated their enemies. In Animal Farm, Napoleon has several pigs executed for no justifiable reason. “The four pigs waited, trembling, with guilt written on every
The ensuing rebellion under the leadership of the pigs Napoleon and Snowball leads to the animals taking over the farm. Vowing to eliminate the terrible inequities of the farmyard, the renamed Animal Farm is organised to benefit all who walk on four legs. But as time passes, the ideals of the rebellion are corrupt, then forgotten. This is all due to the lust for power that the pigs Napoleon and Snowball have that made them all selfish and corrupted. Animal farm in context to The Russian Revolution in terms of corrupting influence of power : Orwell 's goal was to portray the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the early years of the Soviet Union that resulted in a more oppressive and deadly government than the one it overthrew.
He does eventually, by sending the dogs he raised to chase off and kill Snowball and used lies and deceit to convince the other animals of Snowball 's alleged betrayal. "the animals ' workload is repeatedly increased throughout the following year as construction begins on the windmill. Napoleon announces that the farm will be trading with the neighboring farms, which seems to violate one of the early resolutions passed by the animals. "(Animal) The other animals, still not knowing any better, trust Napoleon and follow him blindly. Little by little, Napoleon abolishes and modifies their freedoms and rights to benefit himself as he rises to power to become their self-imposed dictator.
