Primitive people communicated by delivering their messages and shared information through Ravens or Pigeon post for long distances, while other times they used smoke signals. Back in times, once in the society literate ones were out-numbered by an illiterate one, information resources were limited, and not everyone could able to write, interpret or read anything let alone affording pigeon post. Therefore, since it was hard to afford such expensive and rarely accessible tools of communication, there is no doubt the fake-news spread among among such societies was less effective than our today’s publicly shared vague, false and misleading news.

Certain things suit us, and we call them “good” things, other things make us feel bad and we call them “bad”.
There’s this scene in the beginning of the film, where the director shows us a bunch of pigs colliding each other due to the crowded area they are in, and how unorganized they are. right after that scene we also see a plenty number of factory workers hitting their shoulders with each other, where I believe that director clearly wanted to deliver this message: Those factory workers have no any personal value left in their heart, they are dehumanized by time, due to the harsh conditions they work in, they have no difference than those pigs in the sty.
