    An example of propaganda being used in Animal Farm is when Squealer states that “No one believes more firmly than Comrade Napoleon that all animals are equal” (Orwell, 37). This quote is very misleading since the animals know that Napoleon just wants to have overall power, however, Squealer is trying to manipulate them by exaggerating Napoleon’s abilities and his point of view. For this reason, even if the animals didn’t understand Squealer’s speech they would still fall into his trap since he sounded so convincing. Another extract from the book which states that “He had seemed to oppose the windmill, simply as a manoeuvre to get rid of Snowball, who was a dangerous character and a bad influence” (Orwell, 39) also shows that Squealer is trying to exploit the animals through propaganda by giving the impression that the idea of the windmill had come from Napoleon…

    Remarque does to the enemy and Paul’s comrades, but another important theme is the way that Paul see his enemies as humans, and therefore runs into problems. Remarque uses animals as comparison to the current event they are facing, and he relates the idea of animals’ instinct to the way the soldiers feel during battle. For example, Remarque states, “We reach the zone where the front begins and become on the instant human animals.” (56) and “We have become wild beasts” (113). Remarque is trying…

    Racial injustice has played a tremendous role in world history and still does to this day today in countries like the US, where systemic racism still is a big problem, even in the 21st century. This issue is also one of the main themes in the South African writer Nadine Gordimer’s short story “Comrades”, which was published in 1991. In the short story, contrasts play a big role. However, the main contrast portrayed in the short story is the contrast between black South Africans and white…

    From reading For Cause and Comrades, I learned about several motivations and reasons that soldiers from the North and the South fought in the Civil War. Overall, the soldiers and their respective sides fought for very similar reasons and motives. Both sides were fighting for their views on slavery, how the states should govern laws, and how the economy should operate. I plan to analyze and compare the motives for the North and the South and show how each side was fighting for remarkably similar…

    Orwell uses the words “Comrades” to show the abuse of power Napoleon abuses the word “comrades” to manipulate the other animals into doing work against their own will. Napoleon was said to be, “loyal and obedient” and believed that “all animals are equal”(Orwell 40) Sadly, the way Napoleon treats his fellow animals does not reflect upon his words, as he becomes opprobrious. The “equality” that Napoleon promised and talked about changed over time from everyone being equal to “all animals are…

    Mcpherson’s For Cause and Comrades: Why Men Fought in the Civil War, interprets not what was previously expected from this novel, including the political and militaristic motivations, but rather the personal, and humanistic side of the Civil War. Slavery, being commonly interpreted as the highlighted factor concerning all things related to the Civil War, the assumption was that in all sincerity, this was the cause, sustentation, and motivation for War between the North and the South. But as…

    Equal… Well Not Quite “All animals are equal but some are more equal than others”. The novel Animal Farm, George Orwell: is about a farm named Manor Farm which was changed to Animal Farm; the animals at this farm believe in equality and a few other rules. Then some of the animals began to believe that they were more important than others. This leads to the animal farm falling down into pieces. The theme of the story is rivalry. I think that this novel is still relevant to readers today, not…
