Old Major's speech
started the rebellion of animal
farm off with great hatred towrads humans, and anything
associated with them. One of the main points bringing
hatred to Mr. Jones's can be found on page 30 "Is it
not crystal clear, then, comrades, that all the evil
of this life of our springs from the tyranny of human
beings? Only get rid of Man, and the produce of our
labour would be our own.". This quote brought great
hatred to Mr. Jones's because it brought up the
tyranny he put the animals through, as well as the
fact that Mr. Jones's takes the fruits of their labor.
Old Majors's main in this was to make it so the other
animals were all to take the side of eachother, and
turn against man. At another point in the story is
found on page 28 and 29, it states "Because nearly the
whole of the produce of our labour is stolen from us
by human beings. there, comrades, is the answer to all
our problems. Itis summed up ina single word-Man. Man
is the only real enemy we ahve. Remove Man from the
scene, and the root cause of hunger and overwork is
abolished for ever.". This gives us another sign of
the weakness of Man. Be seeing that Man is the ones
keeping them at bay, and taking everything they have
worked for in their lives, it brings great hatred to
the farm. So by the end of the speech, all of man is
hated by all the animals.

Napolean's outlook, and response
to everything
that happened, could be blamed on the fact that he
had little, to nothing to do with the rebellion at
the beginning. This is shown on page 27 the quote
reads "The two horses had lain down when a brood
of ducklings, which had lost their mother, filed
into the barn, cheeping feebly and wandering
from side to side to find some place where they would
not be trodden on. Clover made a sort of wall round them
with her great foreleg, and the ducklings nestled down
inside it nd promptly fell asleep. At the last moment
