The rivalry comes to a head over Snowball's idea to build a windmill. At the final debate about the windmill, Napoleon summonsdogs he has secretly reared to be his own vicious servants and has them chase Snowball from Animal Farm. Napoleon tells the other animals that Snowball was a "bad influence," eliminates the animals' right to vote, and takes "the burden" of leadership on himself. He sends around a pig named Squealer, who persuades the animals that Napoleon has their best interests at heart. Three weeks later Napoleon decides they should build the windmill after all.
“They dashed straight for snowball, who only sprang from his place just in time to escape their snapping jaws” This shows that even before the windmill had come into play napoleon had reared these puppies to be aggressive dogs and to get rid of snowball. Next the pigs begin to abuse there power and break the commandments. This starts to happen as soon as napoleon takes place as leader of Animal Farm. “Whatever goes upon two legs an enemy” This is
The dogs were totally trapped. After he impounds nine dogs, he educates them to follow him and brainwash them. After that, he appears with 9 dogs and gets rid of Snowball. Since then, he always he took nine dogs. Whenever someone claims against Napoleon, he uses followers to control them.
At the start, being an animal on animal farm was such an improvement from when farmer Jones ran the place. The animals were free and could live life so much better than before. But the napoleon took over and made the animals life’s horrible. He changed the rules and started acting like a human; he also paired up with the humans. A pig named snowball tries to change napoleons way to make all the animals life’s better, he tries to follow Old Majors commands.
They gathered together a band of other pigs who had been forced off their land. Their new brigade of porkinistas attacked the wolf complex with machine guns and rocket launchers and slaughtered the cruel wolf oppressors, sending a clear message to the rest of the hemisphere not to meddle in their affairs. Then the pigs set up a model democracy with free education, affordable health care, and cheap housing for
Whereas in Animal Farm, Napoleon had to banish his main competitor for the role of leading, Snowball. To accomplish this and to gain power, Napoleon uses his control over the dogs, which he raises to become brutal and violent dogs to drive Snowball out of the farm. " This moment Napoleon stood up and casting a peculiar side long look at Snowball, uttered a high-pitched whimper" (Page 33). This displays Napoleon's ambition to gain power, as he would take extreme measures to get rid off Snowball, so he could take control. Both these quotes focus on the terrible actions Macbeth and Napoleon would do to attain
Squealer is in Animal Farm to illustrate the effect propaganda has on the masses, and how the masses easily change their minds. The allegory fits because the way Napoleon tyrannizes his people without opposition is similar to Stalin's regime. Squealer employs techniques from the entire spectrum of propaganda. He uses confusing vocabulary, impenetrable statistics, and limits the terms of any debate. HE uses glittering generalities, like "freedom" (from Jones) and "justice" (against Snowball).
Orwell positions the reader to see the effects of a dictatorship especially how it can control a whole society. By establishing a power base, the pigs are able to manipulate the other animals in their rise to power. In the early stages of the revolution, Napoleon trains the puppies of Jessie and Bluebell to be at his command by removing them from life on the farm and ‘brainwashing’ them. When Snowball unveiled his plans for the windmill, Napoleon, “... uttered a high-pitched whimper... and nine enormous dogs wearing brass-studded collars came bounding into the barn” (Orwell 1945, p. 35). The enforcement of terror and force through the use of the dogs dramatically frightens the other animals.
The animals, seeing the fall of their hero, fought harder than ever, from sadness and the desire for revenge. “Long Live Animal Farm!” Snowball pounced on Mr. Jones, knocking his rifle out of his hand with ease. Meanwhile, the cowardly Napoleon tried to sneak away from the chaos within the cowshed, only stopped by a rugged man, who spat, “you’re not goin’ anywhere!” Napoleon took to his heels and fled, with the man close behind, brandishing his long stick. The human invaders were desperate. The animals fought with renewed courage and determination due to Boxer’s death, but their stamina was giving way.
