He continues by saying “We pigs are brain workers, the organization of the farm totally depends on us” (Orwell 42). Here Squealer puts the sake of the whole farm (and Animalism) on the pigs consuming the apples & milk. He uses the fear of Jones coming back to end the conversation. Squealer also uses guilt as a way to persuade the animals. When the other animals discover that the pigs have changed their residence to the farmhouse.
While pigs like Napoleon and Snowball are allegorically Stalin and Trotsky, respectively, Squealer has a less definitive role. Being the chief minister of propaganda, Squealer probably represents Stalin's close associate and protégé, V. Molotov. He can also represent the wider array of propagandists, like the newspaper Pravda. It is also possible that Squealer was inspired by Goebbels of Nazi Germany. Squealer is in Animal Farm to illustrate the effect propaganda has on the masses, and how the masses easily change their minds.
The barn is a symbol because this was the place the pigs painted the seven commandments and then added their revisions, which represents the collective memory of a modern nation. The pigs did this to create Animalism and to ensure that the pigs would continue to rule over all of the animals. The working-class animals would puzzle over the changes but accept them. If the working-class believes history of lies from their oppressors, the will be less likely to question oppressive practices. The windmill is a symbol of the pigs’ manipulation of the other animals for their own gain.
A pig named snowball tries to change napoleons way to make all the animals life’s better, he tries to follow Old Majors commands. But Snowball is then chased out and banished by Napoleon. He tells the animals he was banished for their benefit but really Napoleon has just taken complete control and was abusing his power. Boxer, one of the horses, was injured by a cart of rocks falling on him. He could no longer work, napoleon tells the animals he is going to send him to hospital to get better but he is not.
The sheep, which are so stupid that they only know the phrase “Four legs good, Two legs bad,” are a caricature of the people of Russia. Orwell was telling them that they were blindly accepting this idea, when it was going to make them miserable. Of course, he did not think they were as dumb as the sheep, but the exaggeration helped the author get his point across. All of the characters in Animal Farm represent people or ideas, making the book an allegory. Napoleon is a caricature of Joseph Stalin.
ANIMAL FARM IRONY ESSAY Animal farm is a classic portrayal of how power can affect the goals and hopes of society. Animal farm, a story by George Orwell begins with a revolution, and a lot of hopes for a perfect society being developed by the animals, by kicking off the humans from the farm. But slowly, the leading officials “the pigs” get a taste of power, from then things began to change. A very important part of the novel is the irony George Orwell used to make this novel what it is. In this story, irony is used to show lack of equality, no matter what the original intent was, can result in oppression.
Most people shudder at the thought or sight of a Pit Bull and consider them vicious atrocities, but I will show that Pit Bulls are innocent and really are just misunderstood. I would like to give some facts, dispel some myths, and show the side of the breed that the media chooses not to tell. American Pit Bull Terriers were first introduced during World War I and World War II. The job of the Pit Bull was to deliver messages back and forth across the battlefield. Pit Bulls were first bred to bait bulls and bears as a sport back in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, but soon became more commonly used as house pets due to their friendliness towards people (Brom, 1987-09, p.14).
Summary In Puppies, Pigs and People, Alastair Norcross presents us with the controversial question of whether or not it is morally reprimandable to support factory farming. He compares the treatment of farm animals with several hypothetical situations that most people would find appalling and not support. The first situation follows a man named Fred and his desire to taste chocolate after an accident damaged his godiva gland, rendering him unable to properly experience chocolate. The only way that he can taste chocolate like before is to consume cocoamone, which has only been found to be produced in puppies that are exposed to extended periods of torture and suffering. Fred creates an extraction lab containing 26 caged, violently abused puppies.
The principles of animalism were reduced to seven simple rules. The pigs’ corruption by power progresses incrementally, and as this occurs the rules must be adjusted. The adjustments are made surreptitiously and the new rule’s similarity to the old one leaves the animals confused. “No animal must sleep in a bed with sheets.” Squealer is also able to confuse them with his ability to revise history and also to inspire fear by suggesting that the pigs need the beds so they will be fit enough to protect the animals against Jones. Squealer is able to use the sheep to support his propaganda by training them to bleat his mantras repeatedly often teaching them the new rule first.
The enforcement of terror and force through the use of the dogs dramatically frightens the other animals. With the dogs as their enforcements, Napoleon and the pigs are able to convince the other animals that they are always right. When Squealer is sent to explain why Napoleon, now that Snowball was gone, claims the windmill as his own, “...the three dogs who happened to be with him growled so threateningly, that they [the other animals] accepted his explanation without further questions” (p.39). By seizing power by force, Napoleon annuls the other animals’ right to choose
