The metacartoonist deftly purloins yet more of Damonk's intellectual property in an effort to show the inanity of the very concept; as Toonbots is collage, it obviously falls under fair use anyway. The unstated cultural assertion is that art can never be separated from statecraft, since both are merely aspects of the entire sociopolitical/economic/conversational meme complex.
