 Power corrupting absolutely is a pretty common theme. It works with different stories like Shakespeare’s Macbeth or even Walter White in Breaking Bad. Basically, in animal Farm, once Napoleon tasted power, he needed more. Power can corrupt the soul and absolute power can push one into some sinister places. Once Napoleon had no competition and all animals were terrified of him, he indulged in his darkest desires. Orwell felt that without checks and balances people naturally gravitate towards corruption. .
