“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. Our sole object is to preserve our health.
We pigs are brainworkers (42). Here, Squealer tries to convince the animals that it’s for health reasons that they take the apples and milk, but he tries to persuade them in other ways as well. Squealer continues, “ ‘The whole management and organization of this farm depend on us…. It is for your sake that we drink that milk and eat those apples’”(42). Finally, he convinces them with fear.
Even though Squealer says he does not like apples and milk he is later in the book said to be eating the apples. Also, Squealer says that the apples and milk are needed in their diets to watch over the animals welfare and that it’s for the animals sake the pigs eat these items. Squealer then says to the animals that if the pigs fail in their duty, Jones will come back. Since all the animals are afraid of Jones coming back, there only option to avoid this is to give the pigs all the milk and apples, which the animals agre... ... middle of paper ... ...aid he was taking the puppies for special education. Napoleon actually was taking the puppies for special training not teaching them how to read or write but how to defend Napoleon.
This statement dumbfounded the animals. The fact that apples and milk were being stolen was lost in the fear of the tyrant Jones returning. Their lack of intelligence keeps them from recognizing that the pigs are exploiting them, and they slowly begin to hand over their newly-won freedom to their new masters, the pigs. The next freedom the animals unknowingly give up is the freedom of choice. As the debates persisted, Napoleon and Snowball began disagreeing more often.
They start to act like humans and even start to stand like them. The pigs do not even look at the rules of animalism anymore and they are basically humans. That was the reason why they revolted and in the end you cannot even tell the difference between the animals rule and the humans rule Totalitarianism is shown because the animals’ food is being taken, their thoughts are being controlled, and they are being cruelly treated by the pigs. The occasion where the pigs... ... middle of paper ... ... name and it was always meant to be that. This should have been the last straw for the animals because seeing your leader changing your farm name because he wants to act like a human should have been when they revolted.
Here, he is assuming to tell the animals what they think and they believe him as they consider themselves to be equal. By telling them what they think, he is asserting himself over them and not acting as an equal. This is further emphasised when he tells them that pigs are the, "Brainworkers" and the milk and apples are a necessary part of their diet. Without them they would not be able to do their jobs and Mr Jones would come back. This is very clever and manipulative as animals are all very scared of Mr Jones and would not like to see him back under any circumstance.
(pg.52) Squealer is trying to convince the animals that the milk and apples are essential to the overall stableness of the farm. However, in reality, it is obvious that the pigs only want the milk and apples to themselves for their own benefit. Squealer corners the other animals into a situation where they cannot challenge the idea by proclaiming that farmer Jones would come back to the farm. This frightens the other animals and makes them vulnerab... ... middle of paper ... ...nd excellent speaker and motivator to trick the other animals into getting what he wants. Since Napoleon lacks the strong, conjuring voice that Squealer displays, Squealer eventually ends up giving all of the speeches at the Animal Farm meetings.
The pigs turn increasingly unfair through the course of Animal Farm. They begin by taking the milk and apples, which are supposedly reserved for them under the pretext that they require more nutrition for planning than the rest of the animals. This excuse is available on page 53 – “So it was agreed… that the milk and the windfall apples… should be reserved for the pigs alone.” The hardworking animals take this rather well and find it to be a very logical thing to do, all the while blatantly unaware of the fact that it is the beginning of a long journey downhill. This journey continues when the pigs begin to alter the Commandments to suit their needs. The other animals, with the exception of Benjamin the donkey (who may represent Orwell himself) are really quite oblivious to the unfairness of this.
Squealer, one of the pigs on the farm uses logos and ethos to grabs his fellow animals attention. His skills helps the pigs live a royal life, while the other animals live a horrible life. While Squealer mostly utilizes ethical and logical appeals, there is always an underlying emotional appeal that gets the animals to listen to squealer. Squealers touches on logical appeal to tell the farm animals why the apples and milk were gone when other animals realised that Napoleon is stealing things from the farm. He says that the pigs are just trying to help the animals, not to harm them.
Squealer intimidates them by inferring that the consequence of not preserving the milk for the pigs is Jones's return, which is a false exaggeration. However, his attack on their vulnerability to the government and the security that they are provided with by the pigs causes the animals to trust Squealer's word and willingly supply the pigs with the milk as the pigs' personal luxury. When Clover also questions why only the pigs are enabled to use beds, a human mechanism, Squealer intervenes by saying, "' You would not rob us of our repose, would you comrades?'" Squealer here uses reverse psychology to intimidate Clover by accusing her and the others of denying the pigs' comfort... ... middle of paper ... ... leadership. In order to secure a life of luxury for he and his fellow pigs, Napoleon, along with Squealer as his spokesman, uses language that intimidates, language that distorts the truth, and language that appeals to the emotions of the others to manipulate the gullible animals of Animal Farm.
