Pilkington, one of the farmers, play the Ace of Spades at the same time and both sides begin fighting loudly over who cheated first.

The pigs Snowball, Napoleon, and Squealer adapt Old Major's ideas into "a complete system of thought", which they formally name Animalism, an allegoric reference to Communismnot to be confused with the philosophy Animalism. The young pigs — Four pigs who complain about Napoleon's takeover of the farm but are quickly silenced and later executed, the first animals killed in Napoleon's farm purge.

Such flagrant anti-Soviet bias was unacceptable, and the choice of pigs as the dominant class was thought to be especially offensive. It is an astounding trilogy work of medieval historical fiction, centered on a powerful female protagonist.
