However, after years of Napoleon’s corruption and greed the commandment was changed to, “All animals are equal, but some more than others.”(Orwell 123) George Orwell shows us that “absolute power corrupts absolutely”. Napoleon had all the power on the farm and was corrupted by it. Orwell’s novel also proves Adlai Stevenson right when he said, “Communism is a corruption of a dream of justice.” These dreams were furthered by Snowball.
Like the animals in Animal Farm the people want a great change, and are willing to stop at no cost. However, like the Russian people they soon find out that by using communism to free them from bondage, they are only slaves to a new master and lose all reminisce of past culture. The winter of 1917 was one of the harshest winters Russia had faced in years. Food was scarce and the people were ravaged with disease. Peasants morosely toiled in the fields only to see their harvest consumed by the aristocracy.
For instance, the word "comrade" is used often. The pigs mostly use a Russian accent, but the other animals mainly use an American accent.Animal Farm is about a farm in England during the Russian revolution. The animals on Manor Farm are fed up with the way they are being treated. Inspired by a speech given to them by a late animal named Major, the animals revolt. The animals drive the owner off the farm and take over.
So throughout the book Animal Farm, the morlas for which the animals fought for, such as equality and freedom, begin to disappear as gradually they lose their rights and their freedoms. The equal and perfect world that these animals ished and dreamed for became worse than what it was before when the farmer ran the farm. All of the animals wanted what they were promised by their selfish and brainwashing leader Napoleon. The animals wanted an equal share of power, but instead Napoleon wanted everyone under his power and he achieved this by pushing all of the animals till they couldn't go anymore, such as in the case of the boxer, and using as much force and manipulation that was needed. Napoleon made the animals believe that he was in power because he knew what was best for the animals as well as the
An outcry for revolution from the animals begins early in the novel when their lifestyle is rapidly transformed into a means of slavery. The animals are poorly fed and over worked. Mr. Jones, the owner of Manor Farm, is constantly drunk and regularly forgets to take proper care of the animals. The withholding of food is what finally forced the animals on the farm to rebel. In Russia, there were many food shortages which caused many civilians to demonstrate rebellion.

Napoleon seems at first to be a good leader, but he is eventually overcome by greed and becomes power-hungry.
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.

Mr. Jones tried several times to try and take back the farm. This was where the animals tried their best to keep it under control. Further on in the story you see how the pigs rule over the farm and the animals, and take all the privileges for themselves, whilst leaving the rest of the animals to work restless hours and feed on rations.
