Power Corrupts Those Who Possess It

Too much power corrupts those who possess it just as Joseph Stalin committed sins

against Russia when he gained power, the main character, Napoleon, committed sins against

Animal Farm. In the novel Napoleon was corrupted by his power. Napoleon abused and deceived

others and finally became what he had rebelled against. Napoleon wronged the inhabitants of

Animal Farm. Napoleon terrorized animals by killing many of them. He killed four pigs for

communicating with Snowball and he killed three hens for confessing that Snowball came to them

in their dreams. Napoleon also affected the animals by making decisions for them. When

Napoleon decided that there was no longer a need to sing the Beasts of England, a favorite song,

because the rebellion was over, he banned it. He also decided how much food each animal

received. In addition, Napoleon changed the seven commandments to benefit him but not the

other animals. The fourth commandment about an animal not sleeping in a bed was changed after

the pigs started sleeping in beds to ?no animal shall sleep in a bed with sheets.? When Napoleon

drank alcohol he broke the fifth commandment, and so he changed it to
