Animal Farm Revolution

The purpose of the Russian Revolution was to fix problems from Czar Nicholas II.

The purpose of the Animal Farm Revolution was to make life better for all the
animals. However, both revolutions made life worse afterwards. All of the
characters in Animal Farm have counterparts in real life. This book was based on
the Russian Revolution, and all the important populace of the revolution are
symbolized. Some of the animals represent individuals in the Russian Revolution,
and some types of animals represent different types of Russian citizens. Mr.

Jones closely resembles Czar Nicholas II. The animal rebellion on the farm was
started because Mr. Jones was a drunk who never took care of his animals. This
made his animals very angry. Fed by the words of Old Major the animals decided
to rebel like the Russians. Czar Nicholas II was a very weak man who treated his
people similar to how Mr. Jones treated his animals. Czar made his working class
people very uneasy with the way he used his authority and preached all the time,
and the people suffered and finally demanded reform by rebelling. Old Major
closely resembles Karl Marx and V.I Lenin. Old Major resembles Karl Marx
because, like the political thinker, Major brought about and created the idea of

Communism, or ĎAnimalismí, the Animal Farm version of this system of
thought. In a way, Major is associated with V.I Lenin of the Russian Revolution,
the opportunist who brought and initiated the communist way of life on this land
when it needed a new system-of-thought to help itís troubled economy and the
way-of-life itís people were forced to live out every day. Snowball closely
resembles Leon Trotsky. Snowball believed 100% of Old Majorís ideas. Snowball
wanted all the things Old Major wanted, such as the welfare of the animals. Leon

Trotsky believed and wanted the same things as V.I Lenin, and wanted to continue
what Lenin had started. Napoleon closely resembles Joseph Stalin. Napoleon was
selfish and greedy. He did not want to share the power or the decision making
with any other individual. At first Napoleon and Snowball shared the decision
making and had debates about what course of action they would take. This worked
for a while. Then Napoleon grew weary of long debates, and he thought he could
make his decision by himself. He then forced Snowball out of the farm and
started to spread lies about Snowball to get the entire farm against him. Joseph

Stalin did the same thing against Leon Trotsky. Stalin forced Trotsky into
hiding in Mexico, where Trotsky was eventually assassinated. Both Stalin and

Napoleon ruined any hopes of equal and fair government and instead, set up
dictatorships. Squealer closely resembles the Propaganda Department of V.I

Leninís government. Squealer did not make the decisions in the government, but
acted more like the controlled media as in the Russian government. Squealerís
job was to influence the people by exaggerating and re-writing history and
sometimes even telling outright plain lies. The animals would listen to
squealer, and Squealer would always listen to Napoleon. The Department would use
any lie to convince the people to follow Joseph Stalin, and the Department
benefited from the fact that education was controlled. The dogs closely resemble
the Secret Police (KGB). The dogs were Napoleonís private army that used fear
to force the animals to work. The dogs would kill or intimidate any opponent of

Napoleon. The dogs were part of Napoleonís strategy to control the rest of the
animals. The Secret Police (KGB) was not really police, but they forced support
for Joseph Stalin. KGB used force, and they often killed entire families for
disobedience. KGB was extremely loyal to their master. Mollie closely resembles
the vain, and selfish people in Russia and the world. Mollie only cared about
her ribbons, and wasnít much of a thinker. All Mollie wanted was to eat sugar,
and look pretty. Some of the people in Russia and the world just didnít care
about the Russian Revolution. They only thought about themselves and went to
other countries that offered more to them. I believe Boxer represents all the
people in Russia. The poverty stricken, the homeless, who still work hard in
order to make the system of Communism or Animalism work. Boxer is the
representation of workers who are pushed around, who are taken for all they are
worth, and who are left for dead. Benjamin the donkey closely resembles the
skeptical people in Russia and outside of Russia. Benjamin was a critic who
always said "Iíve seen that before" and "Itíll never work." The
skeptical people were
