Satisfactory Essays
Squealer explains, “The van had previously been the property of the knacker, and had be bought by the veterinary surgeon, who had not painted the old name out… Then went into further graphic detail of boxer’s deathbed and admirable care Napoleon paid without a thought as to the cost. animals sorrow that they felt for their comrades death was tempered by the thought that at least he died happy” (Orwell 86).

All the animals believing the van’s name to be coincidental and boxer being acceptant of his fate supports how ignorance leads to social and political oppression because they do not question anything. Furthermore, more animals will die unless the animals speak their mind when the evidence does not add up. Makes Napoleon not a bad guy anymore
