It would be easy to direct blame squarely on the shoulders of Napoleon. I think Orwell was more subtle than that. I think that Orwell was saying the utopia that communists or extreme socialists seek is unattainable. When incentive to work, freedom to evolve, and individuality is removed: society collapses. Napoleon and his cronies personify the perils of this system.
What are some reasons on why Napoleon is to blame?
