It’s common knowledge that a great leader is intelligent, passionate and integrity. Lucky for you all I have all of the traits that I just listed. I, Snowball am always willing to work hard and do whatever it takes to improve the far even if no one else will step up to do it. I’ve researched whenever and whatever I could to become the great leader that this farm desperately needs if we want to continue to thrive. I’m firm on our community’s ideals and I always have great ideas that can make our lives easier while helping the farm simultaneously. With my dedication, our farm will soon become the very best that it can be. That is why I believe I would be best suited to lead the farm. My dream has always been to do what’s best for the farm and its people. I myself had studied Mr. Jones for a long time to fill myself with knowledge so when the time came I could bring my changes and improvements to life. My main ideals focus on the development of Animal Farm. I follow all of our principles and I would never use my power for selfish, personal gain.
While I am not perfect, I still believe I have great, logical plans and ideas. One major quality of a leader is bravery and courage. I fought in and led the Battle of the Cowshed. He puts himself high on his own pedestal and treats everyone else as if we are beneath him. His way of control is using threats to scare us into following his lead. “Surely no one here wants Jones come back?” (Orwell, Pg. 52) He’s manipulating your minds and making you doubt or think less of yourselves. For instance changing the commandments of the Animal Farm to confuse everyone into believing that Napoleon was always in the right. I view us all as equals.
“All animals are equal.” (Orwell, Pg. 43) Our past hardships and all the suffering we’ve gone through are what motivate me so much to be a good leader to you all. Napoleon’s way of leading is similar to a dictator He keeps his power through control of the mass media and he’s removed many of your personal freedoms. “Not much of a talker but with a reputation of getting his own way.” (Orwell, Pg. 52) Napoleon also uses Squealer as his own personal puppet to spread his influence among the weak-minded farm animals who listen to whatever he has to say. “The animals listened first to Napoleon, then to Snowball and could not make up their minds as to who was right; indeed, they always found themselves in agreement with the one who was speaking at the moment.” (Orwell, Pg, 66). He’s a unfair and unjust leader
