He tells them about his dream of a revolution against the cruel Mr Jones. He announces that he may die soon. Old Major tells the animals that human beings are the sole reason that "No animal in England is free" and that "The life of an animal is misery and slavery." And that the animals must take charge of their destiny by creating a rebellion to mans. Three days later old Major dies, Pigs are considered the most intelligent animals.
