Themes in Animal Farm
By: Y Nguyen, Su Lu, and Uyen Ngo

Corruption
.During the secret meeting, Mollie asks Snowball if there will be any sugar after the Rebellion, and Snowball replies, "Those ribbons that you are so devoted to are badge of slavery. Can you not understand that liberty is worth more than ribbons?" -Chapter 2, Page 12

How does it connect to society today?
It connects today because it proves that no matter what, communism would never work out. There is always a leader that leads the citizens into thinking that they are all on the same level.
Current events: Local, National, & Global issues
Conclusion
Communism still exists in the world today. The Chinese Revolution led by Mao Zhe Dong resulted in the Communist Party replacing the former dynastic regimes with the new elites running the government. This is analogous to the pigs in Animal Farm taking control of the farm operation (government) and living in the farm house. China presently remains as a communist
country.

Another country that still practice communist
regimes would be North Korea (under a totalitarianism
rule).




Propaganda
.Squealer's speeches to the animals are all propaganda. He often uses "facts" and figures to back up his points because the majority of the animals are unable to read; therefore, they have no option but to believe what he says.

Ex: "Squealer, holding down a long strip of paper with his trotter, would read out to them lists of figures proving that the production of every class of foodstuff had increased by two, three, or five hundred percent." Chapter 8, page 63
WWI - Kaiser Wilhelm
Greed
.Greed is one of the biblical seven deadly sins and can manifest itself in several
different ways

.The characters of the automatically have the connotation of greed-"greedy pigs".
Napoleon does not want the humans to realize that the animals are starving,
he arranges for the nearly empty storage bins to be filled up with sand.

Ex: "In January, the farm starts running out of food and rations have to be
drastically reduced-Napoleon arranges to have Whymper contradict in the
outside world of shortage on Animal Farm."-Chapter 7, pg.51
