After a while “Animal Farm” begins to go down hill there is food shortages, hard labor, and death. However, because Napoleon is intelligent he uses his and Squealer’s knowledge to undermine the other animals that are not so bright. Napoleon’s complete power only results in the destruction of the society. Only the pigs are well cared for and the other animals work all day and everyday thinking that they are happy even though they are not. The book Animal Farm is a great example that if one person has complete power only destructive things will end up happening because that one person is only thing of themselves.
Later on in the book is when the pigs really start to receive treatment that no other animals get. For example, on page 99 it says, “when a pig and any other animal meet on a path, the other animal must step aside.” Page 104 says, “there was a schoolhouse built for the pigs.” The pigs are teaching the younger pigs that they are of higher power. They want to remain higher than all of the other animals. Another time is when Napoleon sends Boxer to a slaughterhouse but tells all the animals that he was sent to a doctor. Squealer convinces them that Boxer died peacefully and uses ethos and pathos when he says that Boxers last words were: “Long live Comrade Napoleon!
The story Animal Farm is one that creates a web of persuasion between its characters. Animal Farm is a satirical story where a boar on the farm, named major, calls the animals together for a meeting where he addresses the humans as vile and cruel. After the lead pig dies, two younger pigs take over and take over preparations for a rebellion. The pigs create the “seven commands of animalism” where “all animals are equal” (Orwell 33). In order to educate them, Snowball, one of the pigs in charge, tries to teach the animals how to read.
The animals drive the owner off the farm and take over. The pigs who were the smartest animals took control, set up rules, and kept the farm together.Throughout the years on the farm the pigs lie to the other animals about, if they work hard, all the luxuries they would receive.
One night, all the animals at Mr. Jones’ Manor Farm assemble in a barn to hear old Major, a pig, describe a dream he had about a world where all animals live free from the tyranny of their human masters. Old Major dies soon after the meeting, but the animals — inspired by his philosophy of Animalism — plot a rebellion against Jones. Two pigs, Snowball and Napoleon, prove themselves important figures and planners of this dangerous enterprise. When Jones forgets to feed the animals, the revolution occurs, and Jones and his men are chased off the farm. Manor Farm is renamed Animal Farm, and the Seven Commandments of Animalism are painted on the barn wall.
All animals at this point realize that they have been nothing to humans but subject to extremely strict and tremendous harsh treatment and they all want to have a rebellion for a more better and equal society. Later, the animals found the owner of the farm Mr. Jones drunk, so they took the opportunity to ram sack the food supply and when the animals heard the Men coming they attacked them and scared them off. That’s when the animals had full control and they b... ... middle of paper ... ...he beginning the pigs start out as animals who have no more power than any other animal on the farm, and they all have the same ideas. The animals create order and freedom, and then happiness is no longer enough. Shortly after, Napoleon takes the spot light and takes charge along with the other pigs.
They change the commandments to suit their selfish needs. Snowball and Napoleon become rivals. After Snowball is chased away by Napoleon’s dogs, Napoleon becomes supreme leader and life becomes more difficult and frightening. The animals are confused by his hypocritical actions but his right-hand pig, Squealer, convinces them to accept the decisions. The windmill that promised a better life did not deliver a better life for the animals, instead only enriching the gluttonous life of the pigs.
One day, the Old Major who is the wisest pig, tells the rest of the animals about a dream he has been having to get rid of their human master and run the farm on their own. After Old Major's death, two new leaders of the farm come into power and run Mr. Jones off of the farm which leaves the animals to fend for themselves and to take care of the farm by using a group effort. For a while, the animals work as hard as they possibly can to keep the farm in pristine condition and keep every animal fed with abundant amounts of food. The animals truly did keep much better care of the farm than Mr. Jones ever had. Shortly after, Napoleon becomes so selfish because of his power over the other animals on the farm, that he blocks Snowball from all of his power which then turns the other animals against him.
Major was the initial one to start the movement and the other two were the main leaders that carried it on after he passed away. When the animals became tired of Mr. Jones’s harsh and intense labor conditions, they plan to dethrone him by chasing him out of his farm. After the successful rebellion, the animals set up their own rules and regulations to follow. The pigs taught themselves how to read and write and reworked Major’s system into an elaborate strategy called Animalism. They formed their own new and improved living environment to harvest and do their chores.
Under the leadership of the pigs, who are clearly the more intelligent of the animals, they strike against their human master and manage to get rid of him. After the rebellion, under the direction of Napoleon, the most outspoken pig, and Snowball, the most articulate pig, the animals continue to work the farm with success.The animals now come up with a set of rules to run their society. They are labeled "the Seven Commandments of Animalism" and are posted on the barn wall. 1. Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy2.
