The establishing a just society, where everybody was equal, never came into being. It transformed into tyranny, where every animal lived in scarce and oppressive conditions. It happened, because the leaders wanted to satisfy solely their desires without thinking about well-being of others.
“History consists of a series of swindles where the masses are first lead into revolt by the promise of Utopia, and then, when they have done their job, enslaved all over again by their new masters”- George Orwell. Only one man has the insight and the genius to depict this. Only he understood that in the end, humans cannot defeat human nature, because it is inherit in themselves. In Animal Farm, the farm animals, fueled by Old Major’s speech, rebel against Farmer Jones. They set up a commune under the control of the pigs soon afterwards.
Czar Nicholas II lost control because the publishing of Karl Marx's book "Communist Manifesto" led to the successful February Revolution, had ignited the spark of reformation.) Farmer Jones lost control of the animals after they got the spirit of revolution from Old Major's speech and revolted. The outcome was a successful Rebellion. Since Old Major was dead and Jones was gone, the Animals, ironically, needed a leader to be in charge of the new Animal Farm, where they were all free and equal. Pigs were considered the most intelligent, and out of them Snowball and Napoleon were the most prominent.
As a result, if the pigs are not allowed to do what they want, then Animal Farm will not prosper or function well. The effectiveness of propaganda is evident through the rise of a despotic and tyrannical government in Animal Farm. Used as a successful, manipulative tool in the story, Animal Farm depicts the dangers of propaganda to an ignorant and gullible society. Orwell’s story describes the actions that brought about the eventual collapse of an ideal utopian society. Orwell demonstrates the inhumanity and corruption of the Soviet system through the actions of Napoleon and Squealer.
George Orwell rewrote the Russian Revolution as ‘Animal Farm’ to expose the ‘soviet myth’ as he called it. He saw the mindless zombie-like acceptance of everything Stalin did in the name of socialism as damaging to the entire theoretical concept of socialism. The author believed that there always was something fundamentally flawed with human nature, and successfully portrayed it in ‘Animal Farm’. Unfortunately, Orwell had trouble expressing his views as ‘Animal Farm’ was repeatedly rejected, one of which was a letter from T.S.Eliot that read, “We have no conviction that this the right point of view from which to criticise the political situation at the current time.” Although Orwell himself believed strongly in socialist society, he felt that the Soviet Union realized these ideals in a perverse form. Orwell shows the gradual disintegrations of the Seven Commandments as well as Squealer’s (Animal Farm’s equivalent of propaganda) elaborate justifications for the pigs’ blatantly unprincipled actions.
Despite the United Kingdom’s alliance with the Soviet Union George Orwell, the author of Animal Farm despised Stalin; he felt that Stalin was an oppressive power in Russia, forcing his people through trials and tribulation that were completely unnecessary. Many of his constituents starved and faced exactly what he promised would not happen under his communist policy. George Orwell being a democratic socialist felt hostility towards Stalin’s greedy policy. Seeing its effect on his homeland, he was out raged and motivated to write the novel Animal Farm to properly criticize the Soviet Union. He felt that communism was a hopeless and delusional concept created by greedy tyrants so that they could maintain their position of power.
the second problem was when Napoleon became a leader and feclares that the power to make decisions for the farm will be exercised solely by the pigs.and did not divide the equally among the others and he betrayed them. The final act ended with them get rid of Napoleon and all the animals being free of his rule. The most common issue occurring in indonesia is corruption. In the film Animal Farm, Napoleon sold his friends or the animals for alcohol. he did that for his own good and didn’t think it would effect the other animals.
It was the foundation of Animalism, and once that rule was destroyed, corruption was exposed and Animalism ceased to exist. Communism is difficult to achieve, and has not been entirely successful. Napoleon played a essential part in the failure of Animalism for he was the most corrupted character in the satire and showed the others the luxuries that could be gained effortlessly. I believe the pigs were to blame for the revolution for they took advantage of the less intellectual subjects, and ultimately, destroyed Old Major's dream of communism.
When any of the animals questioned any of Napoleons actions, he would confuse the animals with his intellect but would do it in a cunning way by asking, "Surely Comrades, you do not want Jones back?" By using this persuasive rhetorical question, the animals wouldn't question what it was Jones had done and woul... ... middle of paper ... ...trol. The book is based on the Russian Revolution with Napoleon representing the dictator, Stalin. Towards the end, Animal Farm looses its democracy. Napoleon used other animals such as Squealer to maintain control and did not give ant of the other animals a say in what went on.
Animal Farm George Orwell 4-19-02 Book Review # Plot Summary George Orwell’s Animal Farm is a political satire of a totalitarian society ruled by a mighty dictatorship, in all probability a fable for the events surrounding the Russian Revolution of 1917. The animals of “Manor Farm” overthrow their human master after a long history of mistreatment. Led by the pigs, the farm animals continue to do their work, only with more pride, knowing that they are working for themselves, as opposed to working for humans. 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. Characterization Major is a white boar, he is old and wise.
