How is democracy or a dictatorship/monarchy used in the government? What is Dictatorship- A country or a government  that is ruled by a dictator. What is democracy-a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives. I think democracy is better because  Democracy is a majority ruled government while a dictatorship is government ruled by the few over the many. I think democracy is better than dictatorship because it’s majority of the government that is ruled and dictatorship only a few peopleIn the novel animal farm written by George Orwell has a lot of examples of democracy or dictatorship this book is about a farm that is taken over by the animals and they have to take care of themselves in order to survive and work together but they have to follow the rules.In the book the dictator is napoleon because he takes over the farm with his guard dogs telling everyone what to do he ran away snowball after he left he continued with the windmill plan and made the other animals think that it was his plan the believed him as always. He takes his power to far he change the 7 commandments in chapter 10 the pigs made a change that stated “Four legs good, Two legs better,” and the animals didn’t  notice. Napoleon was aselfish and ruthless person who ruined the other animals lives.In this book there are two pigs, Napoleon and Snowball, who take control of the farm. As soon as they took over the farm from Mr. Jones, they made the 7 commandments. They said this “1. Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy. 2. Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings, is a friend, 3. No animal shall wear clothes, 4. No animal shall sleep in a bed, 5. No animal shall drink alcohol, 6. No animal shall kill any other animal, 7. All animals are equal.”(24 and 25). The farm gets a flag and a motto because the pigs think it will bring the other ones together. There is also a battle between the humans and the animals and it becomes physical. The animals win this fight and they are ecstatic. Some animals died including a very intelligent cow and this is also how Orwell intends for readers to learn that revolutions are sometimes violent.
