A bitter competition heightens between Jack and Ralph as both need to be in control. The "hunters" come to be savage and primal, under Jack's standard, while Ralph tries to keep his assembly enlightened. The developing danger between them prompts a wicked and alarming peak.

They set up a commune under the control of the pigs soon afterwards. But the pigs abuse their power and the animals end up being no better off than they were under Farmer Jones. Animal Farm, a parody of the Russian Revolution, is Orwell’s attempt to inform others about a purveying truth regarding human nature- that power is, by its very nature, corrupting. This is why “history consists of a series of swindles where the masses are first lead into revolt… and enslaved all over again”. Old Major, representing both Marx and Lenin, is the catalyst for the revolution.

The book Animal Farm, is a political satire of a totalitarian society ruled by a mighty dictatorship, in all probability an allegory for the events surrounding the Russian Revolution. The animals of "Manor Farm" overthrow their human master (Mr. Jones) after a long history of mistreatment. Little by little, the pigs become dominant, gaining more power and advantage over the other animals, so much so that they become as corrupt and power-hungry as their predecessors, the humans. Major (an old boar) tells them that the source of all their problems is man, and that they must remove man from their midst for hopes of a Utopia. After Major's death Napoleon and Snowball, two boars led the rebellion where soon things start to change.

Napoleon used scapegoats for any problem that arose, and propaganda to brainwash the animals into dependable slaves. Napoleon distorted the seven commandments of Animal Farm to advantage himself, and he lacked compassion for the animals that laboured under him.

This chaos carries on throughout each story due to the fact that the authority figures mask the truth that would resolve the main conflict of each story, ending the chaos. The power given to some of the characters in each story gets to their heads and they seem to lose all morals and begin to act in a way that is inhuman-like due to this. In the novel Lord of the Flies Jack becomes obsessed with hunting pigs, he turns into a predator, hunting pigs as prey. Since many of the boys look up to Jack, they also partake in his violent, animalistic acts. The boys encourage Jack’s predatory behaviors, which leads him further form his previous, civilized character.
The pigs rally around this sadistic authority, gradually turning themselves into selfish, loathsome creatures. By not being implicit at all about this appalling yet intriguing transformation, George Orwell illustrates in detail how power can, and will, end in corruption. The pigs depict this theory by slowly losing their fairness, ethics and ideals. When the novel ends, they turn out to be not only as bad as Jones, but worse, suggesting that George Orwell had little faith in the animals’ revolution and, ultimately, its Russian counterpart. The pigs turn increasingly unfair through the course of Animal Farm.
