Moses represents organized religion in the novel. He tells the animals about Sugarcandy Mountain, a place where no animals have to work. He's allowed to come and go as he pleases because he isn't seen as a threat by Napoleon. His stories take the other animals' minds off their troubles, giving the pigs time to do what they need to.
