Gets appointed King when blame for the King's murder gets shifted to the servants

Adolf Hitler
Cersei quote about Power
The corruption of power exists throughout the seven kingdoms but none more than the Lanister family.
Several noble houses fight a civil war over who should be king, while an exiled princess tries to find her place in the world, and the kingdom is threatened by some rising supernatural threat in the north.
So like, in conclusion, there's corruption all over, and you can't escape it until one day you die because you got shot in the ghetto #brickmansiuonsdeservesanoscar #Ghettoshootup #deadmothafucka #Corruptionkillsmybitchasshoes
-One of the talking statues of Rome

Neil Young
Thou hast it now: king, Cawdor, Glamis, all,/ As the weird women promised, and, I fear,/ Thou play'dst most foully for't (III.i.3-5)
May 4th Massacre
May 4th, 1970.
Kent University, Ohio.
Protest against the "Cambodian Campaign"
Ohio national guard opened fire on unarmed students.
67 rounds fired, 4 killed, 9 wounded.
Unclear if there was an order given. No one blamed.
The soldiers are given power which they are expected to use appropriately.
That power was corrupted by their decisions.
Unlike Macbeth there was no consequences because there was no blame to place.
"Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are cutting us down
Should have been done long ago."
Communism and Russia
Napoleon = Joseph Stalin
Snowball = Leon Trotsky
Mr. Jones = Tsar Nicholas II

The pigs did not actually work , but directed and supervised the others. With their superior knowledge it was natural that they should assume leadership

Napoleon took the dogs puppies when they took over and trained them to act as his own army (KGB)

Use their created ideals to control the other animals:
Seven Commandments, Two legs good four legs bad, Beasts of England

Leader of Nazi party
Uses his power to cause the holocaust
Leader of the Soviet Union

Leader of North Korea
