Propaganda is the spreading of ideas either rumors or facts, using media such as television or newspapers, for the purpose of influencing the public's opinion of an individual or institution. Propaganda is used heavily in the novel Animal Farm, by George Orwell. The novel is an allegorical story with both a literal meaning, animals overthrowing an abusive farmer and then, the farm descends into a tyrannical state, as well as symbolic meaning of the Russian Revolution. The leader of Russia after the Russian Revolution, Joseph Stalin, constantly used propaganda to influence and control his citizens. Napoleon, the leader of animal farm used Squealer to create propaganda as a means of controlling and having power over the animals on the farm. In George Orwell's novel, Animal Farm, the idea that those who controlled the means of communication have the power to create the truth is evident when Squealer convinces the animals to give up their voting rights, when he justifies Snowball’s exile, and when he falsifies statistics to make the animals believe conditions on the farm are better than they appear.
Many may wonder or not understand what the Russian Revolution was about. George Orwell’s classic, Animal Farm, is an allegory for the Russian Revolution of 1917. An allegory is a story in which things, actions, etc. are symbolic (Webster’s New Pocket Dictionary, page 9). In Animal Farm, there is a farm where all the animals are being run by pigs. The animals go to desperate measures for their mean human farmer, Mr. Jones, not to return. They do not want to be led by a human, who does not care about the animals. With pigs running the Animal Farm, a lot of things get complicated. The main leader, Napoleon becomes greedy, later becoming a lot like their old human farmer (Animal Farm, George Orwell). In Orwell’s Animal Farm, Joseph Stalin, from the Russian Revolution is represented by Napoleon. Napoleon’s characteristics include greed, being controlling, and always finding a way to get whatever he wants (Animal Farm, George Orwell).
The revolution had begun and it was perfect at first with Snowball in charge until everything turned around and went for the worse. Most of Old Major’s seven commandments had all been changed. “No animal shall sleep in a bed” eventually turned into, “No animal shall sleep in a bed with sheets”, “No animal shall drink alcohol” was now “No animal shall drink alcohol to excess”, “No animal shall kill any other animal” changed to “No animal shall kill any other animal without cause”, and finally “All animals are equal” now is “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others”. Napoleon started turning into a human and trading with them. Animalism was supposed to be equal for all animals and life was supposed to be easier, but Napoleon had changed everything.

Animal Farm is an allegorical novel written by George Orwell and published on August 17, 1945. This book reflects the events of the Russian Revolution and the Soviet Union. Orwell was opposed to the idea of Stalinism which later he used in his book. As being an outspoken critic of the Soviet Union, he decided to write a book based off this and disguised the characters by animals. He thought the revolutions were pointless because this resulted in corrupted the nature of power. Orwell had publishing issues when the book could not only be applied to the russians but as well to any government in the world. Due to this, no publisher wanted to publish the book, Animal Farm.
