TRUST IN ANIMAL FARM By Bart, Jonghyun and Brad Who are the most trusting characters in the novel? The most trusting characters in animal farm is boxer as well as old major because…As We see boxer say. ‘I will work harder’ showing us that boxer is following napoleons orders which shows he trusts him. • Also old major which is very knowledgeable and because he taught all of the animals ‘seven commandments’ which started the rebellion we see this when ‘Man is the only real enemy we have, remove man from the scene’ . We didn’t see much of him but was immensely valued by the other animals. Why do you think that the animals are so trusting of the pigs? • Because the pigs are using really good vocabulary which the other animals don’t understand and they just go along with what they have to do or say. So they don’t look stupid. We can see this with the quote ‘It was also found that the stupider animals on the farm such as the sheep, hens and ducks were unable to learn the seven commandments’. Was Snowball more trustworthy than Napoleon? • Snowball is more trustworthy than Napoleon. It can be seen when “Snowball launched first attack in battle of cowshed”. It shows that all animals trusted snowball by risking their life. They trust Snowball because he has started the rebellion also he was talking about the freedom and all animals liked it. On the other hand, • Lots of animal think Napoleon is more trustworthy than snowball. It can be seen with Boxer’s slogan “Comrade napoleon is always right” it shows boxer trust napoleon even though he didn’t understand what he’s saying is. Who shouldn’t be trusted in Animal Farm? • In our opinion pigs are the one that shouldn’t be trusted, because they think they are deserve better than the other animal, for example they get milk and apples, we see this when they say “It is for your sake that we drink that milk and eat those apples” it shows that they are selfish, also by using fake fact such as “this has been prove by science, comrades” they made animals to think that it is fairs that pigs have milks and apples. • As well as pigs change the 7 commandments for their own goods. For example after they drunk alcohols they changed the commandment from “No animal shall drink alcohol” to" No animal shall drink alcohol to excess” so they get better life than any other animals. How does the theme of trust link to communism? • Definition of communism is everyone get treated same/ every one is equal, therefore they have to trust each other, if not then the hens would get food for nothing where as boxer for waking up half an hour earlier, we know this because it says “arrangements with cockerel to wake him up three-quarters earlier instead of half an hour” How would the novel have been different if the animals hadn’t trusted each other? • If they didn’t trust each other, pigs probably couldn’t get chance to lead other animal or treated better and they weren’t going to win the battle of the cowshed because nobody will going to fight for the animal farm and animals would still be treated as slaves.
