The pigs at Animal Farm quickly adopted habits which were supposedly forbidden since they exemplified typical human behaviour:
- They wore clothes.
- They slept in beds.
- They drank alcohol.
- They did commerce with human beings.
Another significant change was that they appropriated the farmhouse to live in, thus separating themselves from the other animals. This helped them define themselves as the new oligarchy (privileged few) and it also allowed them to work out their scheme far from the observation and scrutiny of the other animals on the farm.
