Animal Farm Compared to the Russian Revolution
<br>In the book Napoleon began his leadership role quite well, with his ideas being fair and with a positive meaning. As the story continues he becomes more corrupt, and his ideas turn into a dictatorship. "Napoleon lead the animals back to the store-shed and served out a double portion of corn to everyone, with two biscuits for each dog." As time went on his true nature, of a power crazy character begins to surface, he becomes more selfish and the principle idea of equality no longer exists. The farm is run on terror, and no animal dare speak out against him, for fear of death. "The news leaked out that every pig was receiving a ration of a pint of bear daily, with half a gallon for Napoleon."
<br>Just as during the revolution, when at first Stalin was fair and just but as he was given power he turns into a corrupt man with dictatorship qualities. He became more selfish and sinister. When securing his power base he engineered the permanent exile of Trotsky. This compares to the book, when Napoleon and his nine sturdy puppies' chased Snowball out of the farm.
