Boxer, who believes that he has unintentionally killed a stable boy in the chaos, expresses his regret at taking a life, even though it is a human one. Snowball tells him not to feel guilty, asserting that, β€œThe only good human being is a dead one.” At this point in the novel Snowball is convinced in the sanctity of their cause. It is the animals versus them (humans).
