To survive the pigs have to adapt to a more human life. The pigs are smart. They explained that by their studies of the past three months the pigs had succeeded in reducing the principles of animalism into seven commandments. (p. 24 Orwell) just like the animals humans have the Ten Commandments. These commandments lead to law and order for the land. Further more they have their own national anthem. It is called Beast Of England. (p. 12 Orwell) The Star Spangled Banner is the national anthem for the humans. The animals are able to come up with many things that are thought of as human things.
There are more common ground between animals and humans. Besides written things the animals have also come up with new inventions. They want to make a windmill to save energy. Snowballs plans for the windmill were fully worked out. The mechanical details came from mostly three books which had belonged to Mr. Jones. (p. 49 Orwell) The pigs could read very well that how they got so many crazy ideas like the windmill. They got into many battles with the other farmer, hence their new system of awards. Animal Hero, First Class, which was conferred there and then to Snowball and Boxer. It consisted of a brass medal (p. 44 Orwell) Award ceremonies like these are like ceremonies for the people who serve in the army.
Just when you think there are not any more similarities there are more. The pigs began looking through Mr. Jones house and they found some of his old stuff. have the privilege of wearing green ribbons on their tails on Sundays. (p. 114 Orwell) The pigs are breaking on of the commandments. They are never to wear clothes. They didnt just break one rule; they broke many. And the news leaked out that every pig was receiving a ration of a pint of beer daily, (p. 115 Orwell) The animals arent suppose to drink beer, but Napolean has been changing the rules himself. Napolean changes the rules every time he breaks them.
The Animal Farm is a fable. It is a satirical allegory of Soviet totalitarianism. The animals chase away the farmer because they want a better life. Later, they realize that life ruled by the pigs is worse. They pigs start to treat the other animals like slaves.
