The seven commandments under which they live are based on these major principles. As soon as they develop a whole new system, they throw out all of the humans that run the farm. Even though they are supposed to be equal, the pigs begin to take control. By the end of the novel, the pigs have manipulated the rest of the animals into doing everything they want. The pigs then become almost exactly like the humans.
Another ac of hypocrisy located in the novel, deals with the ban on human appearances and human activity. During one of the first meetings after the rebellion, the animals make the rules clear and state that they will apply it to every animal on the farm. : “No animal must ever live in a house, or sleep in a bed, or wear clothes, or drink alcohol, or smoke tobacco, or touch money, or engage in trade.”(6). Despite the rules agreed upon by the animals at the starting of the novel, the pigs decide to become more like the humans and gain complete control over Animal Farm. Things at first seem pretty reasonable, like the learning to read and write, but when the pigs begin wearing clothes and compromising with the neighbouring farm owners, the animals become suspicious of their motives.
After the animals all discuss this suggestion, they decide to agree with Old Major. He then creates a list of principles to follow that no animal shall ever accept the ways and habits of man. The meeting ends with a song called "Beasts of England." Three nights later, Old Major died a natural death. Three pigs with the names of Napoleon, Snowball, and Squealer take over Old Major's place and creates Animalism.
“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal.” This statement is true when pertaining to George Orwell’s Animal Farm. The first half of this quote embodies some of the fundamental ideals of the animalist visionary Old Major. The second half signifies the ideas after being doctored to meet the pig’s wants and needs. The pigs of Animal Farm used their relatively high intelligence to their advantage. In chapter 6, the pigs clearly altered the “seven commandments” to say “No animal shall sleep in a bed with sheets,” (p.79).

The slogan advertised by the sheep “four legs good, two legs bad” was changed to “four legs good, two legs better.” And the underlying theme of the book mocked dictatorship comes out to say that in the end not everyone will be treated equal: “All Animals Are Created Equal but Some Are Created More Equal than Others.” As one can see the book written by George Orwell “Animal Farm” describes and shows how Stalin and his dictatorship with Communism is the exact same as Napoleon and his Animalism.

In Animal Farm, the pigs use propaganda and euphemisms to achieve and self promote their desires. One way propaganda is used is when squealer gives a speech about how the apples and milk are a necessity to the pigs’ diet. Secondly, the pigs decide to let Moses the raven live on the farm so the animals will accept their current life. The pigs use the euphemism readjustment of rations to seem like they are not taking much food from the animals and special education to refer as puppy training. Propaganda and euphemisms are used by the pigs.
"Comrades!" he cried. "You do not imagine, I hope, that we pigs are doing this in a spirit of selfishness and privilege? Many of us actually dislike milk and apples. I dislike them myself.
After Old Major dies, the pigs take over and create a system called “Animalism” and the Seven Commandments, which are rules of which all of the farm animals should follow. The animals work together to form a union against humans. In the midst of Major’s speech, he says,"All men are enemies. All animals are comrades" (Orwell 31). The two main leader pigs, Napoleon and Snowball both honor Major’s beliefs but want to achieve the goals in different ways.
Later on in the book is when the pigs really start to receive treatment that no other animals get. For example, on page 99 it says, “when a pig and any other animal meet on a path, the other animal must step aside.” Page 104 says, “there was a schoolhouse built for the pigs.” The pigs are teaching the younger pigs that they are of higher power. They want to remain higher than all of the other animals. Another time is when Napoleon sends Boxer to a slaughterhouse but tells all the animals that he was sent to a doctor. Squealer convinces them that Boxer died peacefully and uses ethos and pathos when he says that Boxers last words were: “Long live Comrade Napoleon!
