" I want you to work on Sunday afternoons as well. This work was strictly voluntary, but any animal who absented himself from it would have his rations reduced by half." (Chapter 6 page 61 )
My propaganda poster is showing Uncle Sam from World War 2 with Napoleon's face. It is a bandwagon propaganda poster because it is trying to persuade all the animals to work on Sundays. The explanation for leaving the hand in human form is because, it symbolizes that the animals want to be like humans. Napoleon may have put this poster on the barn door because it would encouraged all of the animals to do what he wanted. This poster is also a transfer propaganda because Uncle Sam was someone that the United States respected when attracting people to come to the fight in the war. I transferred Uncle Sam into Napoleon. All of the animals wanted everyone to be equal and everything to be like an Utopian society. That is why I have burned the edges on my poster to show that everything can't be perfect.
