However, Old Major only ends up asserting that man is entirely evil because some men commit evil acts. Nevertheless, the animals show how it is not only men who perform evil deeds. When the animals take over the farm after the rebellion, Snowball and Napoleon become the leaders of the farm and they both enter into a power struggle over the farm. Eventually, Napoleon manages to get rid of Snowball and starts to bring the farm into a state of decay: “They had come to a time when no one dared speak his mind, when fierce, growling dogs roamed everywhere” (pg. 87).
First of all, when boss is mad, he gives Crooks hell. For example, people on the farm always isolate and bully him.

The boss gives him hell when he’s mad.” (Steinbeck 20).
Squealer Manipulative Ways Animal Farm, written by George Orwell is an allegory reflecting the horrifying effects of a totalitarian government. One of Orwell’s characters, Squealer (based on Vyacheslav Molotov) is a clever and very persuasive pig. His job: to promote Napoleons personal image and later on, become his intermediary.

I intend to write an essay in which I explain how power corrupts the main characters in ‘Animal Farm’. Firstly I will talk about the rebellion; it takes place after the animals become fed up of Mr and Mrs Jones the first two human characters that we are introduced to in the novel. Mr Jones Reign of the farm lead to the animals not being fed and miss treated. “So when evening came the animals were still not fed”. This is what causes the animals to rebel.

The corruption of the self-appointed authorities of Animalism is also a crucial theme portrayed in Animal Farm. At the beginning of the story, we find the pigs in much the same predicament as the other animals on the farm. They are all exploited ruthlessly by an authority which cares little for their plight. Playing a leading role in the ensuing revolution the pigs find themselves with more and more power over the trusting and naïve population of Animal Farm.
During the timber selling incident, Napoleon first denounced Frederick as an evil man who tortured animals, and told the animals that the other contestant, Mr. Pilkington, was a good man. However, after Frederick offered more money for the timber than Mr. Pilkington, Napoleon told Animal Farm that these claims were lies, and that Mr. Pilkington was evil and Fredrick was good. Napoleon sells the timber to Mr. Frederick, who proves his sneaky nature by giving Napoleon counterfeit bills. Napoleon is enraged, Mr. Frederick attacks Animal Farm, and Mr. Pilkington refuses to help because of what Napoleon had said about him. Even so, Animal Farm comes out victorious, but not before the deaths of many humans and animals.
Whilst everyone else on the ranch, and America at the time, is struggling due to the Depression Curley seems careless, wreckless, continues to pick fights and make people feel even worse.

Due to this Economic Struggle having getting a job was extremely difficult, to have one and be wealthy was classed as the 'American
The first thing Candy tells us about the boss that he decided to take his anger out on the stable buck when he realizes that George and Lennie were late." An' he give the stable buck hell,too" Stienbeck is trying to tell us the boss gives me a bad time because he is different from the rest of the men in the ranch and he is the only black man. So it is easy for them to bully him as he doesn't have anyone to stick up for him. This quote also shows how Crooks is mistreated by the farm boss because the ranch boss thinks he can ill-treat and discriminate against him. Crooks dream of becoming equal is destroyed by the racist attitudes of others This also tells readers the boss is nice to crook when his not angry, this is because Crook do his
