The corruption of Socialist Ideals in the Soviet
Joseph Stain became a dictator in the development of Soviet communism during the RR
Napolean established absolute power in Animal Farm
The Societal Tenancy Towards Class Stratification
Classes unified in the face of common enemy (ANIMAL F: Animal VS Human, RUSSIAN R: municipal gov. VS citizens)
Defeat of humans result in power vacuum/ gap needed to be filled
Use of superior advantage to manipulate society to their own benefit
The Danger of a Native Working Class
Inability or unwillingness to question authority leads to suffering
The Abuse of Language as Instrumental to the Abuse of Power
Manipulating language to control others and justify actions
Used as propaganda with one major conduit of social control
Evokes an atmosphere of grandeur and nobility
Advocate sense of individuality and focus of task
Ex. songs (Beast of England), poems (Minimus's ode to Napoleon), and slogans (Sheep chants)
State Ritual
Used to reinforce loyalty
Examples :
such as the gun shooting every year to celebrate the victory of Cowshed,
Military awards
such as the title Animal Hero, First/Second Class
New Songs
such as Minimus's ode to Napoleon
To Represent abstract ideas or concepts
Animal take over of farm with pigs as leaders
Russia and the soviet Union under Communist Party rule
Seven Commandments and later their revisions
represent the
collective memory of a modern nation
Institutions in power can revise a community`s concept of history to gain more power and control
Pigs altering the seven commandments
Revising a nation`s conception of its origin and development
allows the oppressed to depend on authorities for communal sense of self (ex. pigs changing idea of animalism to
gain more power and control over animals resulting in animals relying on pigs to lead them to continuous freedom and equality
Twisting the idea of Animalism to justify unmoral actions
(ex Squealer threatening, ``Surely, comrades, you do not want Jones back?`` to justify Snowball as an enemy working with humans)
Manipulation for own gain
and benefit ( ex. Despite the immediate need for food and warmth,
pigs take advantage of the native animals for earning more money to increase their power
Psychological manipulation
(ex. Pigs directing the blame for the destruction of Windmill to snowball causing
animals to unite under a common enemy instead of doubting the rule of pigs
Sign of betrayal
to fellow animals
from pigs (
Declaring windmill`s purpose to be used for commercial use which is
engaging in human principles)
represents the
modernization projects undertaken in the Soviet Russia after the Russian R.
