His stupidity blocks him from realising that he could rally all the farm animals to rebel against the tyrannical pigs. The other horse, Mollie, ‘the foolish, pretty white mare’ is possibly the most stupid animal on the farm but she is very lucky because she manages to escape Animal Farm before Napolean becomes a fully fledged tyrant. The fact that the rest of the animals, besides the pigs, do not trust their own instinct or even themselves contributes to their exploitation by the pigs. The animals are so gullible, that instead of questioning Napolean, they reproach and resolve to work harder and please him more. This is evident in their building of the windmill.
In Animal Farm, the author, George Orwell, shows how “Absolute power corrupts absolutely!” For instance, the first sign of corruption is shown by Farmer Jones ill treatment of the animals. He is a drunken man whose life is poorly living. He works his animals to the last pulp, whips them for the fun of it because in his mind he is the one in charge and who they must obey and he feeds them the minimum rations of food. Farmer Jones is neither considerate nor passionate for his animals and it is noticed that he only tends to the animals because of the profit he is receiving. The first thing he does is drink whiskey and polishes bottle after bottle then he attempts to tend to the care of his animals which is performed poorly.
As the animals are against the humans may internally change when the common enemy is eliminated and the next oppressor takes total control. In the case of the animals after the farmer gets kicked out the pigs take total control and claim themselves to be the leader because they are the brain workers. The pigs begin to make a nice charter of rights that gives freedom to all animals and states that all animals are equal and animals shall never become like humans. As time passes the pigs start breaking the rules that they created and began to secretly change them, as they did this they became more and more like humans and started to treat the working class of animals poorly. All the hard work that the animals did was profited by the pigs and all the pigs did was eat a lot of food and have lot of whiskey
As the pigs become more powerful and seize control, Old Major’s vision turns horribly sour. The plot is a satire on Stalinist Russia, also the novel deals with the more general theme of the abuse of power. Old Major’s vision was for a Utopian society for all the animals. He wanted their lives no longer to be miserable, laborious and short. They are born and only given enough food to keep them alive, the capable animals are worked to the bone, and once useless they are slaughtered with hideous cruelty.
Tsar Nicholas II who resembles Mr. Jones in Animal Farm; was soon removed from power by riots and violence; just as Mr. Jones was chased off the farm by the animals by a series of violence and riots, both because of neglect. Joseph Stalin and Leon Trotsky represent Napoleon and Snowball from “Animal Farm”, they both became leaders of the Russian revolution after Karl Marx (Old Major) died just like Napoleon and Snowball became leaders of “Animal Farm” after Old Major passed away. Joseph represent Napoleon very well because they were both not very good speakers and didn’t want to follow anyone else’s ideas they wanted to have all the power and do thing their way, they both loved power so much they would kill anyone who would disagree to them. They also both used different types military forces to control Joseph used KGB just as Napoleon used Moses, Squealer, and dogs.
Having these work camps and hearing of all the bad things that go on in there makes the people think twice about speaking out against the government. Napoleon tends to use militarism and his 9 loyal dogs to scare the people into obeying him and keeping his power.“But suddenly the
Since the pigs were the ‘brainworkers’, they start to gain more and more power subsequently through leadership which then corrupts them. Firstly, one of the messages George Orwell expresses is that absolute power builds to corruption. Orwell’s point is that power tends to corrupt but absolute power, where all power is given to you, corrupts completely. But when all the power is given to you, you will always want more which builds to corruption and this is demonstrated throughout the Animal Farm. One of the quotes said, “You do not imagine, I hope that we pigs are doing this in a spirit of selfishness and privilege?
Suddenly all animals rebel their situation and a new period start for animal. After this we see the contest between Napoleon and snowball. Both of them try to become the head of animal farm that’s why their contest start. They abuse animals in that way.First of all animalism is something new for that poor animals.They lived in very harsh conditions and they belive things is gonna change in the farm.Both Napoleon and snowball know that these animals are fool and they seek for the ways how they can use them especially Napoleon.Actually this reality is valid sor all the pigs in farm.They know that ıf they like they can command that poor animals as they wish.Yet Napoleon and snowball is different from other pigs because they are the head so one of them should be the leader no one of them gives up. why on earth they give up instead of commanding and keeping their life as they wish.
Analysis: Chapter 7 Idea: Strength of Pig’s “indoctrination”. Hate for Mr. Jones vs. Happy lives. The foundation of the Pig’s indoctrination of the farm animals mainly consists of nurturing the hatred for Mr. Jones and their desire to have a free human farm. In addition, the belief that the pigs have the power to repel the humans makes them as supreme authority figures and Napoleon is almost God-like to some, which makes his words become the animal’s laws without much argument.
Therefore, for a better and equal life, the animals start a revolution, or a violent overthrow, against the owner of Manor Farm, Mr. Jones. Mr. Jones represents Czar Nicholas II in that they are both irresponsible and cruel, but at times, kind. Old Major represents Karl Marx, the inventor of communism. Both Karl Marx and Old Major died before the revolution starts. After Old Major’s death, two pigs, Snowball and Napoleon begin to become leaders.
