Also, Snowball cared for the welfare of the animals to some extent, as he had attempted to set up the many communities and groups, although on the whole he had failed. Still, it was evidence that he did care for the animals to some extent. Thus, over a period of time, as stated in the novel, “there would be a need of paraffin oil, nails, string, dog biscuits and iron for the horses’ shoes, none of which could be produced on the farm.” Although Snowball always tried to make them by himself, he would soon find out that there were some things that he could not do, and resort to trading. Thus, the same result will most likely occur, having relations with Man.
Next, Snowball was ruthless and dogmatic. During the battle of the cow shed, he had said “No sentimentality, comrade!” cried Snowball, from whose wounds the blood was still dripping. “War is War. The only good human is a dead one.” This shows that he was capable of committing the unreasonable executions that Napoleon had also done, and would not wait for reasons, even though he showed a little concern for the animal’s welfare, less animals on the farm would mean more benefits such as food for them, so he would not object to the executions.
Also, when later on in the novel when food was scarce, and the rations for all the animals except pigs and dogs were to be cut down, Snowball would most probably agree that it was a good idea, as it was to his advantage, and being a clever debater, when arguing with the animals why it was necessary, he could be just as persuasive as Squealer, and leading to the same results as what had happened with Squealer as the persuasive talker.
Thus, on the whole, I believe that things would not develop differently even without the expulsion of Snowball.
