The new episode shows that communism doesn't work and that freedom is the way to go.

Suck it Putin!

Isn't the 'SJW' focus generally self-stated identities that distinguish us rather than talents that distinguish us? The latter matters. The former is more of an "okay, do ur thing, bro."

Watching now. It's all about forcibly making everyone equal by removing what makes them excel in some areas over others. Same ability, same economic status (same house, same clothes, same everything), etc.

Communism doesn't take away talents. That village was communist, yes, but it was also some other nasty shit which is not inherent to communism.

Anonymous 3227100

>>3227069
A leader would not need to have fancy luxuries or whatever, and a communist leader with fancy luxuries is a rather obvious indicator of corrupt hypocrisy. However, practical governance probably requires a small number of leaders, who inevitably have more power.

Of course, those leaders could be elected via equal voting.

Communism can make talents not relevant by putting you in jobs that don't use your talents and keep you in them. In the pony village they appeared free to do the careers they wanted to do.

I'm not good with these schools of thoughts, but apart from the "social status equality" part which the villain clearly defies by being the leader herself, it's a much more legit claim to make than socialism or communism or whatever being the topic of the episode.

I would've said that the episode was about a comparison between equality through nobody being unique and equality through everybody being unique.

Egalitarianism is the point of communism. Material equality.
Because equality of rights has another name. A name generally taken to mean the opposite of communism.

Saying that the episode wasn't about communism, it was about egalitarianism, isn't saying anything at all. Communism without egalitarianism isn't a thing.

>>3228162
But egalitarianism without communism is a thing, I bet.

Besides, there wasn't any material topics in the episode at all. It was about talents and what ponies are good at compared to others, and how some of them feared that those differences will create a rift between them.

I like to thing the point of the episode is something I've said many times before.

It's okay to be good at things. It's okay to be proud of yourself. It's okay to show off your special abilities, as long as you are a ware it does not make you BETTER than others, just different.

it's a distinct concept. But I challenge you to propose another social system that places material equality as it's primary purpose that doesn't look functionally identical to communism.

Being a talentless, uninteresting nobody doesn't diminish the love and respect you get from the paltry few willing to give it to you. But I think, strictly speaking, if you're beautiful, charismatic and talented in a variety of ways, way way way more people are going to adore, love, and respect you.

I don't know how you measure "betterness" but, in a market sense .......

3228237

I was afraid what villain was going to show up after Tirek, and was scared it was gonna go all Dragonball, with an even stronger guy than him showing up.
I really appreciated that it didn't happen, and the villain was a very regular looking character, and a pony of all things, that merely was in the position because of her wits. I mean she even only beat the mane 6 at first because she caught them off guard, not because she was super strong or anything!

>>3228222
And I think that was precisely the point of the episode. You can be unique -and- equal with others at the same time, because everybody is unique and special, and we should appreciate everybody for what they're good at instead of trying to hold them down to "keep them in line" with others.

>>3228227
I'm not, because I don't use social system names like that. I don't study these concepts.
All I'm saying is that this episode was hardly about communism, which was a common thing people kept throwing at me ever since the episode was leaked. They instantly jump the chance at muh communisms as soon as they see something even loosely resembling the idea of equality in media. What they don't realize is you can talk about concepts around equality and value without it turning into communism which is a concept of like, running an entire fucking country for crying out loud, its economy and policies and everything.

The thing is this, and I think this is what was pointed out in this episode in a more subtle way.

There's no such thing as an uninteresting, talentless nobody. It's only people who don't believe they are worth anything that act like they are not worth anything. This is partially the fault of society for praising the perfect and disregarding the flaws. Nobody is perfect and it's silly to think that you're worthless if you aren't. There's more to life than being beautiful, though it does help to be sure. There are so many things you can do with your life to make it worth while to you and there are tons of people who will be more than happy to support you. You just have to accept that you do have something good in you, and that that thing is worth being proud of.

Man, that whole deal with the castle/map calling them and stuff, that was such bullshit though. I have to say that was the one thing I didn't like about the episode.

Mobilize, Power Rang- I mean Magical Ponies!"

>>3228257
There was nothing about policies. Nothing about what can or can't be produced. It was only that without their cutie marks they sucked at doing things so they stuck to making very simple and shitty things.

Twilight has indicated no shred of belief in deities beyond the ones she's directly encountered (Luna, Celestia, Discord, maybe a few others count). This is atheism for all intents and purposes, and it seems to be nearly universal in Equestria.

Feeling Pinkie Keen was really about skepticism, science, and faith. Those are associated with atheism because religious belief tends to require suspending reasonable skepticism and treating science as secondary to faith. However, to say it's specifically about atheism is misleading. Pinkie's claimed powers had nothing to do with gods.

You know how specious I like to get.

Nobody's perfect and nobody's completely without merit. But there's still a lot of play in that range in the middle.

Basically, my point is that the phrase "better yourself" isn't meaningless.

Feeling pinkie keen wasn't about science or faith.

Feeling Pinkie Keen was about understanding that sometimes, just because you may not know or understand something, doesn't mean you have to fight it. Knowledge is good to have, but sometimes if something doesn't fit in your world view, but in the end it really isn't affecting you in any way, there's no reason to go out of your way to shut it down just for the sake of proving that you're right.

Of course it will, but that's because the person writing that silmarillion will be a guy like you who find a hidden meaning behind the episode with no solid basis.
I get that fan theories are fun, I do it too, but you take it too far when you start implying the creators wanted to give messages with the show where there is no strong reason to believe they did other than, for this case, the equality concept.
I can tell you about a fan theory of mine and how the mane 6 can be evil jerks if you like.

Seeing as how Daniel Ingram created the song in the episode based on WWII soviet propaganda music, I'm sure that they are aware of the communist links they were putting forth.

But here's the thing. The episode isn't saying communism is bad. Because the ponies in the villiage, despite having been ruled by a dictator for a long time, were still good ponies. And even after they left, they kept their village and continued to live like they had, though with nicer clothes and better food. It wasn't saying that communism was bad in and of itself, but if your leader is leading under false pretenses, regardless of what system of law you live under, the system itself is going to be in-genuine.

TL:DR The moral of the story is that hypocrites don't make good leaders.

It makes sense even though you don't see it, trust me.

The people who made the show are adults, and like every adult who's ever lived, they know what communism is and were totally aware of the parallels. Because they don't have down syndrome.

I think it's because of the fact that MLP:FIM has always been a series that tries to keep to simple things, but doesn't beat you over the head with them like you're an idiot.

The point of the show is not to teach you a lesson, it just has a lesson in it if you decide to give it a deeper look. The point of the show is just to watch funny ponies doing fun and interesting things, and if you learn something from it, that's a bonus.

Just because you can learn a lesson from something doesn't mean you're required to. It's just a nice bonus. It's a "Fun with some learning in it" approach instead of a "Learning that is fun" approach.

But that's not the fault of the writers. That's the fault of the public turning communism into something it's not.

Communism isn't bad. It isn't evil. It's just very hard to do right, and apparently even magical candy ponies have difficulty with it.

This isn't the 80's. There's no red scare. So what if there's communists? Filthy Rich is obviously a capitalist and it could be said that his daughter, Diamond Tiara, is the result of a materialistic society producing a fucked up, selfish little girl.

It could be said. But it wasn't. And it doesn't need to be. Because it really doesn't matter. So what if they're communist. They're happy enough with it, so what's the big deal? It's not like the show is pushing a communist agenda just because communist ideals are portrayed in it.

Such thinking is the problem, not the depiction of these types of things.

Although she seemed pretty attracted to that baker pony too. The writers are really leaving the door wide open on that one.

Also, I thought it would have been funny if the "equal" cutie mark made Rainbow Dash more likable.

e.g.

"Come on, just give me something to punch!"

*glow*

"You know what, I suddenly realize how inconsiderate I've been to you in the past, Fluttershy. I'm sorry."

Why communism?
What is it with everyone thinking socialism = hurr durr equal this, equal that? It was never even a major, flaunted point of it. Like, literally, I'm yet to see a single propaganda poster that has the word "equal" on it. Or maybe I don't remember them that well.
If anything they advertise the pride and importance of the working class. There's ones that underline the importance of maintaining good expertise and professionalism. There's ones for generally boosting morale. There's ones that urge you to work "over the norm" because you and your colleagues are so cool and your motherland would be proud. Like "Let's complete the five-year-plan in three years" sort of thing.
Simply not distinguishing classes by the amount of amassed wealth doesn't mean you can't climb ranks through your expertise and effort.


As for the episodes, it was quite nice! Didn't see best pony do much for now, but I'm sure it'll come. Plenty of action, too.

Yeah. I actually enjoyed the episode because of the villain, I think (usually I don't care for the opening two-parters). I like how they're contending with a "person" and not some kind of supernatural force. I thought the political undertone was cute. Though AJ, Rarity and RD were completely useless, simply added to run schtick, it seemed.

One thing though: couldn't they have picked a name for the villain that didn't conspicuously rhyme with the name of another villain?
