A few things to remember
A few days later, when the terror caused by the executions had died down, some of the animals remembered – or thought they remembered – that the Sixth Commandment decreed: ‘No animal shall kill any other animal’. And though no one cared to mention it in the hearing of the pigs or dogs it was felt that the killings which had taken place did not square with this. Clover asked Benjamin, as usual to read her the Sixth Commandment, and when Benjamin, as usual said he refused to meddle in such matters, she fetched Muriel. Muriel read the Commandment for her. It ran: ‘No animal shall kill any other animal without cause.’ (Orwell 78)
Squealer, Napoleon’s assistant, is responsible for rewriting the
commandments, and is the public speaker on Napoleon’s behalf. The other
animals, who are not as intelligent as the pigs, are unsure whether or not
the changed commandment has always been thus. They are unaware that
the pigs are taking advantage of them.
