Displeased with sharing the little power he has with Snowball, he expels Snowball from Animal Farm. This demolishes what little republic system the farm had, and Napoleon begins to make all of the decisions regardless of what the other animals think. This is the beginning of his reign. He develops a government type organization of pigs to do his biddings. He also trains some dogs to guard him.
Napoleon seizes power and denies the non-pigs' right to vote. If the animals let Napoleon get away with this act, Animal Farm will no longer be Animalist and the animals' freedom will end. Napoleon made the farm animals believe Snowball was the enemy. He made outrageous claims making Snowball look like cause of the problem so the rest of the animals were distracted from his own corrupt behavior. Napoleon had the attack dogs chase Snowball away so there was no one else to lead the animals or lead in the building of the windmill.
This major discrepancy between the ideas of these to 'pigs' led to the abolishment and defaming of Snowball by Napoleon and his dogs. The time when Snowball was in 'Animal Farm' the animals saw prosperity and peace, for 'their leader' wanted to give the animals a better life than in that of Jones's time. But "Our Leader, comrade Napoleon"(pg. 69) cared for no one else but himself and power, he gave the lower rations to the animals than what they received when Jones was their master. Earlier the animals used to vote on issues but with the expulsion
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.
Just as its real life counterpart, despite being more knowledgeable and virtuous, Snowball or Trotsky is overthrown by the more powerful and ruthless Napoleon or Stalin. The way Stalin uses the KGB to get rid of anyone who opposes him can be compared to how Napoleon uses his army of trained dogs to kill any animals who stands in his way. Another social issue that Orwell discussed in his book is about the danger of being a naïve in a corrupted socialist government. He partially blames the suffering of the animals in animal farm as their own mistake. Just like the animals that just quietly listens to what the pigs have to say, he criticizes the people of Russia is to be blame for the trouble that they are in.
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.
Animal Farm Persuasive Essay George Orwell’s novel “Animal Farm,” was once said by Orwell to be “A Fairy story.” While that may be true, His main and dominant character calls Napoleon, Is easily seen as a metaphor for joseph Stalin, the leader of Russia at that time. Napoleon, like Stalin, was a selfish living abuser of power, whose beliefs and actions could only be seen as correct by someone very ignorant. Not only is napoleon a terrible leader of what was supposed to be an animal utopia; but by the end of the story he almost turned himself into what he said he hates: human. If he really wanted to lead the animals then he wouldn’t end up looking and acting like a human being. Napoleon is first and foremost a scheming, plotting liar, who will stop at nothing to make the animals believe he knows best.
Napoleon used the dogs as a way to get rid of Snowball and take control of Animal Farm. Napoleon also uses his intelligence to take advantage of the animals on Animal Farm who are not as knowledgeable. For instance, “Muriel read the Commandment for her. It ran: “No animal shall kill any other animal without cause.” Somehow or other the last two words had slipped out of the animals’ memory” (98). Napoleon, knowing well enough that the animals were not as educated as he was, took advantage of their stupidity.
They destroyed everything that was used by Mr. Jones to torture them and changed the farm’s name from Manor Farm to Animal Farm. Led by Snowball, together the animals fought fiercely for the “Battle of the Cowshed” which caused the lost of a dog leaving her nine puppies motherless. Napoleon took advantage of the situation by raising and training the nine puppies secretly. His hatred towards Snowball finally showed obviously when he commanded his nine young dogs to chase Snowball away during his speech on the implementation of the windmill. Then, he declared himself as the new leader of the Animal Farm after Snowball had gone.
