Does"four legs good, two legs bad" contain the essential principal of animalism?

Many of the animals lack the intelligence needed to memorize the Seven Commandments, so Snowball reduces Animalism’s tenets to one simple saying: “Four legs good, two legs bad” (50). Two legs refers to humans, thus, yes...... Snowball has succeeded in reducing the tenets. But more importantly, in oversimplifying the full system of Animalism into a catchphrase, the other animals begin to forget the Seven Commandments, which gives the pigs the opportunity to change them. In fact, the pigs manage to break every one of the other commandments without arousing much suspicion.
