Pretty accurate portrayal. Usage of fear to try and convince the goodness of surveillance (FUD).

Interesting. Don’t want to be nitpicky of a cartoon, but aren’t the smoke signals already publicly available in clear text? Why does Lion still need the pipe to spy on already public communications?

The Lion isn’t the one listening in, the other caveman is listening in in case they are Lions. As for the smoke signals, the main reason is probably because it is funny,
