After Old Major's death, Snowball, Napoleon, and Squealer take charge and expand Old Major’s concept into a “complete system of thought” called Animalism. They hold frequent meetings in the big barn to espouse the views of Animalism to the other farm animals. At first, the animals are not convinced that they should follow Animalism. Some feel loyalty to Mr. Jones, some worry that they cannot be self-sufficient, and others, such as Mollie, worry about losing treats such as sugar and ribbons. Snowball contradicts Mollie, saying that the ribbons are “the badge of slavery” and that “liberty is worth more than ribbons” (37).

In addition, Moses causes trouble for the pigs by inventing an animal heaven called Sugarcandy Mountain., a utopia for another time.
