A series of debates were scheduled by the pigs and Snowball urged construction of the windmill claiming it would boost production and ease the workload of the commune but Napoleon opposed it. The animals cheered the idea and worked even harder than before.
When it was obvious that Napoleon was losing the support of the farm animals he unleashed his pup raised pack of vicious Dobermans on Snowball who fled in obvious terror. Despite the obvious viciousness the other animals acted like good little Germans and embraced the new regime if for no other reason self preservation.
With Snowball out of sight Napoleon claimed the need for the windmill as his own idea but its construction was flawed and when it was destroyed he blamed it on terrorism then began to execute any animals that seemed subversive or uncooperative. Napoleon's abuse had no bounds to the point of rewriting the tenets of Animalism to 'all animals are equal but some animals are more equal' but as the farm fell deeper and deeper into fascism Napoleon made a critical mistake. Ignoring the vital importance of John Q. to the success of existence the dictator shipped the workhorse to a glue factory off the farm thus covertly destroying the farms most necessary asset.
Enter the Donkey. All animals had been taught how to read and then encouraged to use twitter instead but the oldest member of the farm, Benjamin Fawkes, was a well educated Donkey whose favorites included British authors, human history and various religious texts. He had been a quiet force on the farm and had the unique perspective of times before and during the pig regime. His philosophy was one of survival but the execution of John Q. was more than he could bear. Part of his duties was stump removal and being well read had formulated several gunpowder recipes and with an arsenal of 36 barrels prepared and hidden within the House of Lards, in preparation of the Pig Parliament convening, he blasted the little bastards to kingdom come.
Napoleon, Snowball, Squealer and most of the remaining pigs were killed immediately but those that survived scurried into the nearby countryside. Benjamin chased each one down and with a mighty clamp on their napes snapped their necks. Local authorities converged on the melee and not knowing the rational of the Donkey quickly shot and killed him assuming that it exhibited 'rabid and unconceivable madness'. The location of the farm animals that survived the event is not known but there is no doubt we will hear from them again some day. (end of article…or is it?)
