“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.

From the very beginning, Napoleon started breaking the commandment that stated all animals are equal. He had all the milk and apples set aside for the pigs. He put forth the idea that the pigs depended on these things for survival, and that it was in the interest of the entire farm that they be set aside for them. The others were convinced by Squealer’s arguments that “Milk and apples (this has been proven by Science, comrades) contain substances absolutely necessary to the well being of a pig”, and reminding them they didn’t want Jones back. Another inequality on the farm was that only the pigs slept in the farmhouse.
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.

Napoleon was the dictator and had complete control over the entire farm. This novel can also have the sub genre of a political novel. A political novel is “a novel in which aspects of political life are essential ingredients” (428). George Orwell based his novel partially on his thoughts on the Russian Revolution.
Both Major and Marx died before there revolutions both, dreaming of a paradise on earth in which all men/animals are free, equal and can enjoy a sufficient standard of living. In Conclusion, Orwell?s reason for writing this novel, was to educate people about the atrocities being committed through his own experiences during the Russian revolution. Snowball, Napoleon and Old Major were made as pigs ? the smartest of barnyard animals? to show that even the strongest people can be corrupted by power.
Animal Farm, written by George Orwell, depicts a group of animals who plot to destroy their master, Mr. Jones. The oldest and wisest pig on the farm, "Old Major," told the other animals a story about a revolt called, "The Rebellion." The pigs, which were considered to be the most intelligent of all the animals, devised a plan and successfully conquered Manor Farm. The animals ran the farm effectively, with the pigs overseeing and constantly developing new ideas. One pig, Snowball, was in favor of the improvements of the farm, while another pig, Napoleon, was seeking only personal success.
