In the book animal farm, Napoleon cultivates nine dogs to control animal. Before Napoleon wrangle with Snowball, he have been said that education of the young was more important. I believe that Napoleon tend to train an organization to help him to dislodge Snowball.
He may knows well about how to control animal. He trains his own force and have an publicist. Napoleon depend on his private force to control animal mind and their behavior. So that animal farm activities flowed with Napoleon own opinions. In modern society, many countries also use an special organization to control their people, such as secret police. They help government to clean or find people who want to against government.
Secret police uses fear, weapon, and other ways to control them. Like nine dogs.If any animal have different ideas or voice with Napoleon, his dogs will bellow to them. When a chick have question about Napoleon, he was executed by dogs. I will have three examples to illustrate that what is secret police and their function. First of all, I want to introduce an example of secret police is KGB. KGB called “The Committee of State Security”. They was main security agency for the Soviet Union from 1954 until its down in 1991.
It was the chief that government agency of “union-republican jurisdiction”, acting similar internal security, intelligence and secret police. Its main functions were foreign intelligence, counter-intelligence, operative-investigatory activities, guarding the leadership of the Central Committee off the Communist Party and the Soviet Government, ensuring of government communications as well as combating nationalism, dissent, and anti-Soviet activities (Crump, Thomas. Brezhnev and the Decline of the Soviet Union.
Routledge, 2014.). In 20th century, famous spy chief has assisted in the palace coup. He called Aleksandr Shelepin. He help Brezhnev’s against Khrushchev in 1964. KGB It is similar that Napoleon want to dislodge Snowball, he depend on his nine dogs.
They bellows loudly, intimidate other animal. Even some animal were dissatisfied about Napoleon policy, with dog’s bellow, they surrender. It like Khrushchev, he faced every factions and their force, he hand over his power. Snowball faced nine dogs attacking, he surrender and leave animal farm. There were similar organizations in Ming dynasty. They was called The Embroidered Uniform Guard(From www.wikipedia.
com). It is secret police that built from the kings of the Ming dynasty in China. They set up by the Hongwu Emperor in 1368 as his personal guards. They have the authority to overrule judicial proceedings in prosecutions with full autonomy in arresting, and punishing any one, including nobles. The were collecting enemy intelligence and take part in battles plans. They draw a plan, and prepare for joining it. The guards wear golden-yellow uniform, take a special tablet, and draw a sharp blade weapon.
They have right to arrest or interrogate and detain anyone who are enemies of the state without trial and punishing them. The guards usually used as a means of eliminating political opponents through assassinations and legal prosecutions. To begin with, the guards severed as Zhu yuanzhang’s personal guards and defend him safety during the battle with other people. They help emperor to solve rebels that who have different voice with emperor on court. It seems like the nine dogs to defend Napoleon. When Napoleon was coming to watch other animal, they around him and watch out of any animal who have queer expression on their face. When four child pigs try to say something that is different opinions. They want to compare right now with before.
Then they fear about dogs’ bark. Pigs are shut their own. Nobody can say anything when dogs coming. They not only be force symbol but also be Napoleon personal guards. So that no one can approach him.
Third, I am going to use a modern example, which is secret police in nowadays. They are Federal Bureau of Investigation(FBI). FBI is the domestic intelligence and security service of the United States, and it is a major federal law enforcement agency. They are operating under the jurisdiction of the United States Department of Justice. FBI is also a part of US Intelligence Community. FBI has jurisdiction over more than 200 categories of federal crimes. The FBI is primarily a domestic agency, maintaining 56 field offices in major cities in United States.
And they have more than 400 resident agencies in other areas. In the 1940s and continuing into the 1970s, FBI investigated cases of espionage who against the US and its allies. Six Nazi agents be executed by FBI. Since they planned to sabotage operations of American targets.
In the animal farm, many animal was executed. The three hens who had been ringleaders in the attempted rebellion over the eggs, they tell Napoleon, then they was executed. In conclusion, according to animal farm and history, leaders commonly use special groups to control their people. They use force or words to control them.
The people fear leaders power and fear secret police. The KGB, the Embroidered Guards, and the FBI are all examples of this.
