Shortly after, Napoleon takes the spot light and takes charge along with the other pigs. He argues that dishonesty becomes present within the environment and their ideas and their views are all different. In this story the animals send away the unkind humans out of the farm, and change the name of their home from Manor Farm to Animal Farm. George Orwell embodies the Russian corruption of communism into the pigs upon the farm. Mr. Jones was irresponsible to his animals by letting them starve, and very cruel by beating them with whips.
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.
One day Old Major was going to tell the animals what they must do and Old Major dies. Once Old Major dies the animals start fighting back against Mr. Jones. The animals even ended up getting rid of Mr. Jones. After Old Major died Napoleon and Snowball took over everything. Snowball didn’t last long on being one of the leaders with Napoleon.
The animals rebel, and finally scare him away. Two of the strongest animals, Napoleon and Snowball (two pigs), think that they can run the farm. Napoleon: Both Napoleon and Snowball felt that they should both be leaders in the early stages of the Revolution. Snowball had many ideas about how the Farm should be run but he came into conflict with Napoleon over many of them. Napoleon, was a shrewd pig who could see that he could not carry on working with Snowball.
Napoleon changed and broke the commandments of Animal Farm to benefit himself, and he lacked empathy for all those who worked hard for him, executing those that might cause him trouble. As soon as Old Major died, Napoleon and Snowball lost no time in taking charge. They weren’t elected, and were at first only allowed to stay in those positions of power because they showed an interest in organizing the animals’ well-being. On the surface they appeared to have the interests of the animals at heart, but inside, their hunger for power revealed their corrupt proclivities.

In the story, the two pigs always disagreed with each other. The other animals were divided equally in supporting either Snowball or Napoleon. By spreading the rumor that Snowball was a traitor, Napoleon was able to drive Snowball from the farm and become the leader of Animal Farm with no one to oppose him. Napoleon, with the help of Squealer, turned all the animals against Snowball. Squealer, who was a masterful manipulator, played an important part in convincing the animals that Snowball was an enemy.
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.

The novel I choose to read for this assignment was Animal Farm; by George Orwell. This novel discusses how things like greed, wealth, corrupt leaders, and shortsightedness can destroy any chance of a Utopia. These qualities are shown mostly through the pigs, as they start to take control they lose sight of the original 7 seven commandants upon which Animalism was created. As the pigs become more powerful the other animals slowly start becoming less aware of what is really taking place. The pigs are were pretty much destroying whatever shred of animalistic society they had left and replacing it with a cold hard dictatorship in which all the beliefs that made animalism were changed to the pigs advantage.
The novel, Animal Farm, was written by George Orwell and published in 1946. George Orwell's 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 of 1917. The animals of the "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 corrupt and power-hungry as their predecessors, the humans.
This is the beginning of a whole new set of problems for the animals when two other pigs, Snowball and Napoleon, take charge of the revolt against man. Together, Snowball and Napoleon begin plotting the takeover of the farm from Mr. Jones. Along with the other animals, they succeed in driving him away from the farm. The animals then begin building their own society. They try to build a government in which they are all dependent on one another, called Animalism.
