Propaganda Within Animal Farm Propaganda is used by people to falsify or distort the truth The novel Animal Farm by George Orwell contains many examples of things that happened to Napoleon and the other pigs because of using propaganda Napoleon and the pigs used propaganda to tell lies the animals would believe For example when Boxer was taken away in the truck Squealer convinced the animals to believe that the truck had been bought by the hospital but they hadnt taken the stickers on the side off yet Also when Napoleon first drove out Snowball he told the animals that the windmill was his idea and he just pretended not to like it only for the sake of getting rid of Snowball The animals all believed him because they were ignorant Finally when the windmill was first destroyed Napoleon used propaganda to make all the animals believe that Snowball had destroyed the windmill himself and was a traitor from the beginning He even convinced them that Snowball had actually tried to sabotage the Battle of Cowshed but failed In Animal Farm people that were lying and using propaganda were gaining power The pigs were given larger amounts of food and lived in better conditions than the other animals They were able to do this because they told all the animals that since they were the real brains behind Animal Farms accomplishments they needed to rest better so they could be in good mental health Out of all of the animals on the farm Squealer was the most frequent user of propaganda and he prospered from it He became Napoleons right hand man by making everyone believe they remembered wrongly about the commandments and ensured that everyone always believed Napoleon was a good leader The best example of an animal gaining power through propaganda was Napoleon He lied about the windmill the Battle of Cowshed and the changing of the commandments
