In Animal Farm, the windmill stands for the industry that existed at the time in Russia. It was built by the working class, but they didn't get to reap the benefits. Napoleon steals Snowball's idea for the windmill, and this is like the Soviet Five year Plans that Stalin used. Actually, Trotsky developed it, but Stalin took it (much like Napoleon takes it from Snowball).
