Animal Farm CARTT Everyone has needs and wants. As power and greed come into play, people put their wants over the needs of others. They are so blinded by their desires that they fail to recognize if others’ necessities are met. In the novella Animal Farm, by George Orwell the more powerful and educated pigs take advantage of the inferior, weaker animals on the farm; overworking and manipulating them. 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.
The greed of power will always blind the leader’s judgment. Napoleon was not excluded in this matter as he often takes advantages knowing that the animals cannot read or write. Although there are many examples to support this fact, but one stands out the most, Boxer’s ending. As can be seen throughout the story, Boxer is the one who worked hard for that farm’s welfare from the beginning to the end. His never-failing cry of ‘I will work harder’ often inspired the rest of animals to work hard despite facing failures such as destruction of the windmill for the second time.
Behind a great leader, there will always be the loyal follower who will do as they say no matter how crazy it sounds or how much effort and work it takes. During the Russian Revolution, Adolf Hitler was a power house leader who wanted to have total control, and would do anything to get that title. Napoleon, the top pig from Animal Farm, was the same way. Both figures thinking they were making life better for the people, they ended up taking it too far. The thing is, that one person or pig could not carry out such a large plan on their own.
Napoleon had used these dogs to keep everyone in line, and diminish any thought of rebellion with fear. Napoleon was so eager with power, that he was using scapegoats for anything that had gone wrong on the farm. For example, being the windmill. When it collapsed, Napoleon would do anything for the animals to keep their faith in him. So he relieved himself of any of the blame for the bad instructions, while making it, and pointed his finger at Snowball.
In the book “Animal Farm” by George Orwell, the animals aren’t able to think for themselves as individuals or do what they feel is better for them because of the leadership they are being controlled by. By the way Boxer acts, he is kind and passionate for what he does, but one thing he doesn’t like to do that is not part of his character is kill. “ ‘I have no wish to take life, not even human life’ … ‘No sentimentality, comrade!’ cried Snowball, from whose wounds the blood was still dripping. ‘War is war. The only good human being is a dead one’ “ (38).
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
In addition, the story also shows the naiveté of Billy Budd and Boxer in Animal farm believing that their leaders are always right. In conclusion, these clearly show what the leaders can do and its capability of ruling its own subordinates. Many leaders are committed to its subordinates, but there’s also a leader who is just wanting the power and being insensitive to his fellow constituents to the point where it results in violence. In this kind of scenario, we must pick/ or vote for a right person who you think that possesses a strong and kind hearted
Squealer uses different types strategies that change over time to better understand his target audience, which are the animals. For example the sheep, which are seen to be the most vulnerable and submissive to Squealer and Napoleon. Some of the most effective techniques are to be bandwagon, card stacking, and fear. Since the use of propaganda is sufficient, they promised life on the farm would be pleasurable for everyone, but actually resulted in the pigs empowering the farm. Even though the use of Squealer’s propaganda techniques does not fulfill the goals of the community of the farm, the animals still believe that he his right and agrees to follow his lead.
