One of the most effective and often demonstrated methods of Napoleon's work to create a leader myth and his cult of personality is his ability to kill anyone that stands in his way and to control the flow of information to the animals through various methods.  He also controls a force of enforcers, if you will, in the dogs that he trained to be loyal only to him.  He uses Squealer to be sure that any story or event is structured in such a way as to protray him and his greatness and to be sure to squelch anything that would portray him in a negative light.
