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.
He declares that only the pigs have the power to make decisions for the farm and that all the other animals will obey them. Napoleon’s pig-in-crime, Squealer, gives explanation for all of Napoleon's actions with skillful but deceitful revisions of Animalist principles. Napoleon keeps strengthening his power causing more animals to be scared of him, which in turn, gives him less enemies. The common animals continue to obey the pigs in hope for a better future. Napoleon begins to ally with neighboring farms so that there is no way out for the common animals and they are now unknowingly trapped.
Although Animal Farm’s morals are not merely stated, it bears a significant deal regarding the concept of the story. The main morals are all tied together by some form of power. Power is the driving force behind the animal society, once abused, an indication of collapse will be evident. Through the pigs’ abuse of language to strengthen their dominance on the farm, Orwell conveys the power of manipulation in language. For example, Squealer takes the sheep away to teach them a new chant, “Four legs good two legs better”.
He uses a logical technique by saying that even the science has proved it. The animals have no choice but to believe it because they are illiterate and they think Squealer knows everything. Also, to make his speech stronger he adds emotional appeal to his speech. He knows that the animals are afraid of Jones. He states that, “Do you know what would happen if we pigs failed in our duty?
Before Squealer told everyone that Snowball was the enemy, he told everyone that the windmill was actually Napoleon’s idea. He told them that Snowball stole the idea from Napoleon and that is why Napoleon did not like the idea when Snowball brought it up. To make this sound more believable, Squealer gave the speech in Chapter 7 about how Snowball was a traitor from the beginning. When everything was cleared up, the animals were told that the windmill is going to be built. The animals worked hard and pushed themselves while the pigs “supervised.” The pigs also got to sleep in the house on the beds while the animals who worked hard all day building the windmill slept in the barn.
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.
Next Squealer would constantly tell the animals of the great things that they accomplished now that the pigs had gotten rid of Jones. After that the pigs used the animals' lack of memory to their advantage by changing laws and telling the animals that the rules that were on the wall, had been there forever. At the end of the book, the pigs had completely manipulated the lower animals' memories by going against the original views on animalism and by wearing man's clothing and walking on two legs. George Orwell wrote this novel as a warning to man about what is going on in society today and he also warns about the importance of an education.
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.
Propaganda is used to make people think or believe something that might actually not be true. It is when information of a biased or misleading nature is used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or point of view (dictionary). In the book Animal Farm, by George Orwell, the animals revolt against the human farm owner and take over with the leaders of the higher class animals, the pigs. Orwell wrote Animal Farm to represent and symbolize Russia and the Soviet Union under Communist Party rule. The pigs are extremely similar to Joseph Stalin and his success with manipulating taking on the roll of a leader to his people.
Manipulation of language can be a weapon of mind control and abuse of power. The story Animal Farm by George Orwell is all about manipulation, and the major way manipulation is used in this novel is by the use of words. The character in this book named Squealer employs ethos, pathos, and logos in order to manipulate the other animals and maintain control. The first rhetorical device that Squealer uses to persuade the other animals is ethos. In the beginning of the novel, Squealer explains why the milk was not being distributed evenly, and why most of it was going to the pigs.
