The animals revolted against Mr. Jones and his workers on his farm and the Romanoff’s were overthrown by the Bolsheviks and the Russian people. This connection describes how communism requires the eradication of any previous regime before it can take effect. The biggest overall connection is between Animal Farm and the Soviet Union. They both were formed after a revolution. Both of the revolutions were inspired by the principles of Communism/animalism.
According to the story, Napoleon is the only one candidate, he becomes a President or another truly word is the officially director. This shows us know that even there is the election; the pigs are still dominating the other animals by threaten them with the dogs so that no one braves enough to apply to be candidate as usual as they are afraid of the pigs and the partisan, the proletariat whatever dictate the other one. Furthermore, the fierce dogs, Napoleon’s partisan, are the guard who arrest the rebels by killing them in front of the other animals for frightfulness. We can see that the politics of capitalist form the oppression of the lower class or the individual class. Those who have power in system only concern to keep maintaining their power by any tools necessary.

In Russia, their media creates an image of chaos in places like Ukraine even though that's not the real situation. They create a utopia for their citizens in which Russia has no income problems, even though their external debt is 515.3 billion US dollars. Russia directly lies to its citizens by using their respected, well-known governmental TV ( Solovei, 2014). In Animal Farm, this is also done; Squealer, Napoleon's speaker who is also a pig, tells the animals that fake statistics in order to prevent rebellion. On page 113 Squealer gives a speech where he says, “they had more oats, more hay, more turnips then they had in Jones’s day”(Orwell).
The Battle of the Windmill (World War II). The Pigs start walking on two legs and start wearing clothes, they try to be like the humans. (Stalin’s government becomes the same government the revolution wanted to remove.)

Trotskyism can be generally defined as a form of socialism lead by Leon Trotsky. The purpose Orwell had for writing this novel was to expose how Stalinism betrayed the perfect conceptions of the socialist revolution in the Soviet Union. Orwell explained, “I thought of exposing the Soviet myth in a story that could be easily understood by almost anyone and which could be easily translated into other languages.” He used animals to replace humans so that on the surface it was a fun and entertaining story but it actually had a deeper meaning that attacked higher social class people that abuse their power in government.

The events in the novel also take on characteristics of real life events from the time period and many of the ideas in the
a. Orwell’s Animal Farm is an allegory because the events that happen on Manor Farm are very similar to the events that happened in Russia. For instance, when the animals overthrew Mr. Jones, this was to illustrate the Russian Revolution where the peasants overthrew the ruling party. The characters in Animal Farm symbolize historical figures such as Joseph Stalin (Napoleon), the KGB (the dogs), and the working class (Boxer). The windmill project causes the feud between Napoleon and Snowball, and Snowball is forced to leave the farm much like Stalin caused Leon Trotsky to leave the country. The chickens being coerced to produce more eggs resembles the Stalinist period that the Communist state set impossible industrial and agricultural production

The fable, Animal Farm by George Orwell is an allegory for the Russian Revolution. It allusively criticizes Joseph Stalin, by symbolizing him with Napoleon. In the novel, the animal revolution with the best of intentions was gradually undermined by the pigs’ corruption and avarice. As a reference to the emergence of the Soviet Communism, Animal Farm conveys the theme that not only are the tactics of the figures in power responsible for their rise to power, but the oppressed working class is also partially at fault. The loyal servants of Napoleon contributed actively towards his takeover, while the working class, through gullibility, naivety and unwillingness to question authority, condemned themselves to Napoleon’s oppression.
