equality isn't for everyone Will Dathan

Thesis: Although citizens may be born under oppressive rule that doesn’t mean they can’t stand up for what they think is right and change the status quo.

The Animals form their own government lead by the pigs and use equality as a way to gain support to survive the pigs use fear and propaganda to stay in Power. Standing up for what you believe is the way to get what you want and supply what you need.
These images mirror each other. Vladimir Lenin from the Soviet Union and Napoleon from Animal Farm. They have almost identical ideologies and have the same goals wanting to 'bring equality' to their very unequal societies.

Vladimir Lenin was the leader of the Bolsheviks a communist party in Russia. After the Czar was killed he and his Bolsheviks took over. They founded the Soviet Union after a long and bloody civil war. They stayed in power with threats and propaganda.

Vladimir Lenin was the Leader of the Soviet Union from 1917 until 1924. He was the first leader of the newly formed nation and was set on completing his goals.

Leon Trotsky was a friend and ally of Vladimir Lenin he was his right hand man and chosen successor. He had a power struggle with Stalin and eventually lost and was exiled and Stalin took power instead. Play Video: 0:00-0:40

Russian Social Structure during the early 1900's before the war. This is a representation of what life was like before the Bolsheviks created the Soviet Union.
The People who were fighting for the revolution against the Provisional government and were supporters of the Bolsheviks. They were working at protesting and occupying several government buildings and streets. Many government leaders were captured.

The Bolsheviks were the powerful party in Russia that lead the takeover of the Provisional government. The Bolsheviks were trying to bring communism to Russia. They were following Marxist ideology of equality.

The Bolsheviks became very powerful very quick. After the one night that defined the future of the country. They were lead by Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky.

The October Revolution was the beginning of the Soviet Union. After the animals overthrew the Humans they formed the Animal Farm. Both Countries were the one and only of their kind. The Soviet Union was the only Communist country in a world run by Capitalism. Animal Farm was the only country of animals in a world run by humans.
