Animal farm is a novella written by George Orwell, the book was first published in August 17/ 1917 in England. The novella reflects many events leading up to the Russian Revolution of 1917 and then on into the Stalinist era of the Soviet Union.
In animal farm there are many different types of propaganda techniques. In the poster above there have been found four and or more propaganda techniques. The first out of the four propaganda technique is card stacking. This is one of the techniques use in the poster because it is putting up a fight saying in the background “humans are the enemy” and ‘arguing’ with audience that the human is the ‘evil’ one. The second out of the four propaganda techniques is repetition. In the poster above this shows repetition by showing the words ” humans are the enemy” in the background multiple times in a row. The third propaganda technique out four is glittering generalities. This technique is shown in the poster above by using vague wording and that is by the poster saying ” humans are the enemy”. This statement in the poster can’t be proven true or false. Lastly the forth propaganda technique is fear. This technique is used by the propagandist (the pig) worsens the readers/ audience to not follow a certain path of action. That is shown when the poster says ” humans are the enemy” it’s trying to say to not follow down that path of the humans (farmers) to the readers/ audience.
If all the statements taken into account, then one would probably come to the conclusion that the main message of the poster is that humans is are enemy.
