The corrupt use of power when carried out to its fullest extent is extremely dangerous and alarming The more power an individual has the more tempting is the abuse of it mainly for personal gain Ironically fewer checks and balances are available to restrain the corruption This continues until absolute power is achieved and the people already dismiss the idea of something being wrong in their society This principle applies itself to situations where one prominent figure takes over and leads the others astray often in blind compliance as Napoleon did in Animal Farm Like his historical namesake George Orwells pig Napoleon was a power-hungry dictator From the very start when Napoleon was arguing with Snowball during public discussions without any logical reasons or explanations he was greedy and selfish and did not have the same pure ideals as some of the other animals like Old Major and Snowball They wanted freedom and equality for all animals as well as independence from humans Napoleon however took the dream of Old Major and changed it to accomplish his own needs and gain such as being a dictator and awarding himself with awards Napoleon had no loyalty to the animals and also no loyalty to humans He simply had huge loyalty to his own well-being and prosperity The animals are no better off- at the end of the book than they were at the beginning as the human dictator has merely been replaced by another animal even a crueller one From the very beginning when Mr Jones was driven off the farm Napoleon strove only for his goal of taking over the farm for himself showing absolute corruption in his leadership Squealer was the corrupt messenger of the government It was his responsibility to inform the animals of the arrangements of labour distribution and any other relevant legislation or news He is the device by which Napoleon tricks and controls the animals Squealer provides explanations of government
