Animal Farm: The Animals\' Bad Memories


Almost all the animals had a very bad memory so they were not able to
remember things of major signifigance. After a little while the pigs would
mention the past and the animals would not remember what had happened so they
would agree with the pigs. The the battle of cowshed, snowball was a very
herioic animal in that battle but Neapolean said that that was not true that
there memory had deceived them, that snowball was just trying to get them to
trust him because he was in connection with Mr. Jones. Also the pigs had
changed the commandments. When the animals saw the commandments when they have
been changed the pigs convinced them that they were wrong. So even though some
animals knew how to read they would not have remembered very clearly what the
commandments really said.
The pigs where also very convinceing. They were alway able to get out
of any situation. The best talker of all the pigs was Squaler. He was always
able to convince that animals that what every they had done the do for the good
of all the animals and not just for themselves. Just like when the pigs had
taken the milk and apples for themselves, they said that they only took it was
because they needed it and that if they did not have it they would not be able
to help operate the farm, he also added that the pigs did not actually like the
milk and apples but they had to eat it. They rest of the animals believed them
because they did not know what else to think. The pigs where also able to
convince them that they had not changed the commandments and that there memory
had deceived them and that that is what it had always said. This tactic of
convincing them really helped them alot in taking over the farm for without the
rest of the animals support the pigs would not have gotten control of the farm.
Were the animals able to prevent the pigs from changing the seven
commandments? The pigs were very cunning in twisting the commandments to
satisfy themselves instead of helping the other animals like, no animals shall
sleep in a bed to no animals shall sleep in a bed with sheet. Most of the
animals were not aware of these changes in the commandments because they were
almost all illiterate. Even though some of the animals knew how to read they
were very forgetful and forgot very important events or changes in the
commandments. The pigs also always had a way of convinceing the animals that
they were what they were doing was for the good of all the animals and not just
for themselves.
Many of the animals were illiterate, the only animals that were able to
read was Benjamin and all of the pigs. When the pigs changed a commandment the
animals were not able to tell if they changed if because non of the animals knew
what it really said, they would either have to ask Benjamin or the pigs for
example at the beginning the only way that they knew the commandments was that
they hadmemorized them . Most of the animals only knew the alpabet, while most
of them only knew sections of it. The pigs knew this so they were able to re-
paint the commandments on the farm wall.
