  1. Plenty of people have compared Starlight Glimmer's 'equality village' ideology to Communism, Marxism, and assorted other notable cultic belief systems, but is there an actual combination of ideologies equating (pun not intended) to those propagated by Starlight? Is there an official philosophical classification that her village cult and its values fit into? Or, at very least, are there aspects of her beliefs that can be described in analogy to real-life ideological tenets and principles?
  2. Say, Hasbro sells MLP at Country X, whose people consider gryphons as sacred animals in their religion. As a result, many customers from that country (not just little girls and their parents, and any local bronies and pegasisters) go to toy stores all over Country X to buy any sets with Gilda figures, to use these plastic images of that particular she-gryphon as idols to worship their gods. How would Hasbro react to its customers, from that particular country, treating some of its toys like religious items? Would Hasbro stop selling the worshipped toys to preserve its secular image, or to avoid religious controversies? Or would Hasbro not only continue selling the worshipped toys, but also theme those toys after the customers' culture and folktales? Or even use this unusual tradition to promote an event influenced by Country X's local traditions, to promote their toys and entertain their customers?
  3. Lets look back at Season 5 Premier - Episodes 1 and 2. The entire mane six are sent by the brand new Cutie Map to a distant village in order to find and solve a problem. The map never says what the problem is, it just sends you there and leaves it up to you to figure out what's going on. This is the first time they see it, so neither they, nor the viewer know what to expect. Instead of a problem, they discover a harmonious place lead and choreographed by a beloved charismatic leader, Starlight Glimmer. We know the rest of that story, it's a favorite for a lot of us. But what I'm wondering is this: What if that show ended differently? What if, instead of fighting Starlight's efforts to make everyone equally lame and convincing ponies that Starlight was a fraud who manipulates them, they understand, agree, and don't fight her? Would you still watch? Would you stay in the fandom? What would it take for a fandom backlash? I'm asking because I'm curious if there's anything the shows writers can do wrong that could drive you all away from it. Also, what are some examples you can think of where that happens (in or outside of the fandom)?
  4. Who remember this series? It was an absolute favorite of mine, during elementary school years and later, which also made me interested in paranormal things. The episodes always featured short 5 stories, which most have paranormal themes to them and at the end of the episode, you have to guess if these are true or false. The Marathon will start at 8 PM CET and 1 PM EST in here: http://equestria.tv/r/The_Hypno_Channel Come in and chat with us while we have fun.
  5. ok so the premise is too add one sentence into the practices/religion of the cult. let's see where this goes. ok so I guess I'll start. the world was created in 1987 all years before that are false.
  6. I keep seeing topics pertaining to Brony-ism as a religion, how into it are we, so on and so forth... Obviously we aren't members of a cult. So let's totally start one!! I'm calling it "The Cult of Pony Wisdom." Thank you - I know it's an awesome name. We, of course, revere and actively worship the Elements of Harmony, their respective bearers / goddesses, and the goddesses that bring us the day and the night. Primary Gods / Godesses: Princess Goddess Celestia: goddess of the sun / day! Princess Goddess Luna: goddess of the moon / night!! Cadence: goddess of Love (not strictly of a romantic nature) Rainbow Dash: warrior goddess and bearer of the Element of Loyalty!!! Pinkie Pie: goddess of mischief and bearer of the Element of Laughter! Fluttershy: goddess of nature and bearer of the Element of Kindness. Rarity: goddess of beauty(?) and bearer of the Element of Generosity. Applejack: goddess of the harvest and bearer of the Element of Honesty. Twilight Sparkle: goddess of knowledge and bearer of the Element of Magic. Discord: god of chaos. Because, darnit, it sounds cool. Secondary Gods / Goddesses: Sunshower Raindrops: goddess of "Kicking Misbehaving Clouds' Butts." Derpy: maiden goddess of Innocence (and muffins). Iron Will: god of "providing sacrifices to the gods." I mean, he can't possibly need ALL those goats. Big Mac: god of Judgement. Other: Spike: "clumsy dragon messenger of the gods." Diamond Tiara: "Stealer of Blank Flanks" Feel free to contribute to our burgeoning pony cult. Being that I founded "The Cult (Colt?) of Pony Wisdom," I declare myself, ummm... A Class 6... Peridot-Eating... Dragon. Thing. EDIT(s): child of the night named Discord ruler of the underworld and Tirek guardian of the underworld. JLmle named Cadence goddess of Love (though not strictly romantic love; love and tolerance do apply). Rainblow Hash suggested that "Cerberus should be Guardian of Tartarus, and Tirek is the Ruler of the Underworld." But then he, sadly, abandoned our cult to worship Rainbow Dash. Which I totally get. But THEN he returned! Praise Celestia! And Rainbow Dash, also, for being kind enough to permit him reentry. Star Stripe named Spike the "clumsy dragon messenger of the gods," and that was just too good not to include. Sunshower Raindrops suggested that, um... Sunshower Raindrops be named goddess of weather. Rainblow Hash (who often says "lol" worthy things) suggested her title be "Goddess of Kicking Misbehaving Clouds' Butts." Rainblow Hash named Iron Will "god of providing sacrifices to the gods," and I apparently just put whatever he says. He then named Big Mac god of Judgement; stating that his Eeyups or Nopes determine whether somepony goes to Tartarus or Pony Paradise. Rainblow Hash named Diamond Tiara "Stealer of Blank Flanks," elaborating that: "she steals your children at night and makes fun of them for all eternity for not having a special talent." Sunshower Raindrops named Derpy the "maiden goddess of muffins," and 'twas seconded by Rainblow Hash.
