How does ignorance contribute to social and political oppression in Animal Farm?
Ignorance contributes to the social and political oppression in George Orwell's Animal Farm by enabling the pigs to take advantage of the other animals, which creates a social hierarchy on the farm that only benefits the pigs. The pigs use their intelligence to manipulate the ignorant animals into accepting their oppressive, one-sided policies. The animals are too ignorant and vacuous to recognize that they are being exploited for their labor and are continually deceived by Squealer's effective propaganda.
