  2. I agree, actually - except for the idolization and movement part. I don't see anything of that sort in this thread as much as a thread just saying "I miss this guy, does anyone else?" It was a very nice sentiment on behalf of the OP, but I don't really deserve any kind of special attention of any sorts. I'm not necessarily a profound member, and likely all anybody remembers me for is always bickering with the staff/with someone about Rarity. That's fine and all, but I'm not really much special. Someone should just make a "lost members" thread or something, if it doesn't already exist,
  3. I miss that handsome son of a bitch too.

      Why?! Why do so many nice people leave these forums?! Sometimes I feel like I'm the only person who isn't leaving.

  6. I just don't really like it when I think something fails to look at a subject from a global point of view and confines it to a nationalistic point of view. Holds everyone back as a whole, in my opinion, because we fail to see things from the perspective of others. That's a pretty big deal to me, honestly, because I feel that nationalism - regardless of what type of government ideology is being used - is something that holds almost the whole world back.
  7. Of course not, but that doesn't mean that I agree with it, and I can't really understand why it deserves it at the moment
  8. Hmm...then I guess it is an accurate representation of what it can lead to, but it never specified that's the way it had to be and made no attempt to even imply as much, so I can't say I agree with the execution entirely - I still get the impression that Communism could be a great thing if not for people like Starlight Glimmer, but it's people like her that make it like that. I will take that into consideration when I begin to perform an actual analysis of the episode, though, instead of just my initial thoughts. Thanks for the feedback, man.
  9. The fact that she used it so easily to her advantage to exercise total control and gain power as many leaders under a communist government have done in the past immediately comes to mind. The way it was portrayed as being inherently a bad thing instead of a good thing also comes to mind. Upon seeing the character and the synopsis of what it was about, people instantly drew lines to communism, man. Maybe you can offer me a line of reasoning that proves it wasn't? Furthermore, even if it wasn't, then I can't say I agree with the execution of the concept it was trying to push because of
  10. Of course it isn't, but that doesn't mean it has an incapability to reference things in the real world to prove a point, especially when it's done as subtlety as it was there. Furthermore, just because it like that in certain parts of the real world doesn't automatically mean that it isn't like that in Equestria. It's certainly a possibility, and when there's such strong communist undertones coming from Starlight Glimmer's village as well as her being referenced as an Eastern Unicorn, when communism was historically strongest in the eastern part of the globe in the real world, then it's re
  11. If that was the case, then it should've been executed in a way that couldn't be so easily connected with strong political undertones. The writer really should've watched his implications if that's what he was going for, and he clearly didn't. Therefore I can't really forgive this flaw even if it was proved to be what you claim it to be and my initial thoughts were wrong.
  12. I didn't like it, honestly. I don't expect the show to have Shakespearean levels of writing, but when it comes off as being nothing more than nationalistic, then it's going to irk me. Communism, at its core, is a good thing. It's just easy to take advantage of and create a situation like the one that was seen in that village. If they had portrayed the villagers as being more than miserable, mindless followers and actually seemed devoted to the cause, and it was Starlight Glimmer just taking advantage of the otherwise good idealism she created, then it wouldn't bother me so much. It wasn't
  13. There was no subtlety. When preaching a political message, you not only need to portray both sides of the argument *accurately*, but you also need to do it without hammering it in. I think it was my least favorite since the first premiere.

      ...vantage of the otherwise good idealism she created, then it wouldn't bother me.

       

      But even if it wasn't going for that, all I could think of was communism vs. capitalism. I see one side being communist, and one side being capitalist. I couldn't get those representations out of my mind, especially when they referenced it taking place in the east. If you're going to do a thing with a political message, please be subtle about it. All this felt like was something to m...

      At the very least, the ponies were brain-washed and not mind-controlled, which would have been a too easy explaination for everything.

  14. Holy shit, they actually presented Fluttershy with a good conflict for the first time since S2 ...aaand they blew it.
  15. I'll be honest, I really don't like what I saw out of the first half. Maybe it gets better in the second half, though. I'll write about it at length later.
  16. Not responding is generally preferable if someone argues with you without the intent of having an actual intellectual debate. If someone tries to give you hell for your avatar or something, they more than likely fall into that category.

      God yes. I love the beatles. There was a time, where i just listened to them and nothing else.

  20. I'd punch Gilda solely for using such terrible and dated insults.
  21. I remember when Chevette made this gif We were in a Skype call and I needed something Buffalo Man-esque for my profile during that whole fling. Good times
  22. Good. I really, really don't want IDW getting any legitimate recognition from the show just because of how much most of their comics suck in terms of characterization of...err, everyone, pretty much. Just the abysmal quality of their writing in general, really. I'd like to use this picture as another example of something that's wrong with the comics and why they shouldn't be brought into the show's canon: I don't like the comics. At all, honestly. I hate them, even. I just want to get that out there. Putting that aside, I see all sorts of off-kilter continuity that doesn't
