Meanwhile, more and more of the animals' rations are reduced while the pigs continue to grow fatter. This book is an allegory of fascism and communism and the negative outcomes. Also, he was friends with Boxer. Remember, comrades, your resolution must never falter. The truest happiness, he said, lay in working hard and living frugally. Once his hoof heals, Boxer works as hard as he can at building the windmill — until the day he collapses because of a lung ailment.
Therefore, the dogs were used to control the animals. Many of the animals didn't have enough education to know what happened on the farm. Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. They use this knowledge to their full advantage. By demonstrating how easily swayed the animals of the farm are by a powerful speech or strong words, Orwell is demonstrating something via a fable about the human vulnerability to carefully chosen words and out unfortunate ability to fall victim to the power of words without understanding the deeper meanings behind them. In Animal Farm, the pigs gradually twist and distort rhetoric of socialist revolution to justify their behavior and to keep the other animals in the dark.
Soon, the animals are told that they are better off relying on their leaders to make decisions. Animal Farm shows the how depending on your nature and what you do and treat your power; it will change whether for the good or the bad. Many present ideas are expressed about culture and place that depict the time period of the represented in Animal Farm. Yet he is lord of all the animals. Since the novel was written in third person, Orwell was also able to successfully narrate in a manner which allowed the reader to understand both sides of the revolution.
And above all, no animal must ever tyrannize over his own kind. By the end of the novel, the animals on the farm believe Snowball fought against them at the Battle of the Cowshed even though they saw him fight with them. He carried a whip in his trotter. Although Boxer tries to kick his way out of the van, his previously incredible strength has been — through days of mindless hard work in the service of his tormentors — reduced to nothing. The animals are relieved when they hear this.
In modern language, Snowball is pegged as the terrorist responsible for the infringements on the rights and liberties instigated by the pigs. Because of the lack of intelligence the animals could easily be vitimized. Initially, the animals do not realize Jones is exploiting them. The animals didn't want that to happen, so they were forced to give up some of their food to the pigs. Strong not only in body but also in spirit, Boxer will make any sacrifice for the benefit of Animal Farm.
For what purpose did Major call the meeting of the animals? He uses similar fear tactics regarding Frederick and Pilkington. At the beginning of Animal Farm power was used to achieve great things; it brought all members of Manor Farm together under a united cause and allowed them gain their freedom from oppression. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plow, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. Another reason why Napoleon is able to gain and maintain control of the animals is because he uses propaganda to convince the animals to follow him. Snowball is a worse threat than Jones, because Jones is at least safely out of Animal Farm. Orwell procreated this through the portrayal of figures from the Revolution as animals, this is most prominently seen in the characters of Napoleon and Squealer. Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings, is a friend.
Weak, strong, clever, or simple, we are all brothers. An English writer, Orwell was born on June 25, 1903, and died on January 21, 1950. Reading out the figures in a shrill, rapid voice, he proved to them in detail that they had more oats, more hay, more turnips than they had had in Jones's day, that they worked shorter hours, that their drinking water was of better quality, that they lived longer, that a larger proportion of their young ones survived infancy, and that they had more straw in their stalls and suffered less from fleas. Violence and Terror as Means of Control In Animal Farm, Orwell criticizes the ways that dictators use violence and terror to frighten their populaces into submission. The pigs also wanted extra milk to be mixed in with their mash.
He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. He sets them to work, he gives back to them the bare minimum that will prevent them from starving, and the rest he keeps for himself. Completely brainwashed by Napoleon, he lives and dies for the good of the farm — a farm whose leader sells him to a knacker the moment he becomes unfit for work. Joseph Stalin also used fear by holding a series of executions in which Stalin accused his opposition of crimes and forced them to admit the false truth. Jones, and Napoleon be used in this analysis but there are other great examples as well. He was trying to kick his way out. Whenever the farm faced any troubles which would cause the animals to question the leadership of Napoleon, Squealer would be sent to calm them and persuade them into thinking otherwise.
