2. Equestrians originally defined themselves along the line of ethnicity: unicorn [which represent WASPs], pegasi [which represent southern europeans], and earth ponies [which represent irish/eastern europeans].
3. Equestrians end up uniting under the general bannier of "pony," just as European Americans united under the general banner of "white"
4. Equestria is a classically liberal society, where people choose their careers based on what they enjoy doing the most and what they are the best at doing. Equestrians generally have little social obligations to the collective. The economy is market-based and people generally have many freedoms.
Aha, you say, but isn't Equestria a monarchy? No, Celestia and Luna don't represent monarchs. Instead, the represent how Americans unified under the banner of Christianity.
Oh I forgot
5. Equestria near the end stops being isolationist and takes in non pony immigrants, representing America’s rise as a superpower and the end of the Hart Celler Act. Therefore the end of the show is meant to represent post 1965. Only question is who the jews are
As far as I remember, the buffalo are only native to one patch of land they had to travel by train to get to. But its clearly whites vs. indians.
Looking at the founding of Equestria, pegasi are clearly inspired by Rome, unicorns by European monarchies, and earth ponies by old England.
They're a small government, capitalist, monarchy. They literally have queens, royalty, royal castles, royal guards, and a general royal hierarchy. They're a monarchy.
I think England after Roman and then Norman rule makes more sense. The earth ponies as the Anglos, pegasi as the Romans, and the unicorns as the Norman upperclass.
There's even historical mixes between the Normans and Romans among English monarchs, like Henry V, which would fit with alicorns.
>>292199>The earth ponies as the Anglos, pegasi as the Romans, and the unicorns as the Norman upperclass.
There weren't exactly Romans running around Britain after 1066 you know. By this point even "Romano-British" culture had coalesced into Welsh culture.
I do know. Thats why I said after Roman and then Norman rule.
>>292195>Equestria was founded by distinct pony tribes settling a new land inhabited by the buffalo, which parallels how America was founded by settlers from distinct European countries in a land inhabited by the Native American tribes.
I have actually thought in similar weins about Equestria. But what is europé?
Under this, Europe would be some other random countries that Equestrians don’t really think about a lot. This parallels how 1) Americans were isolationist for a very long time and 2) Americans are generally ignorant about other countries
It has more european and roman influences than american over the first two seasons. It only goes full "america, but ponies" after season 3.
This, and then in S7, Egypt it's still pony and in fact a part of southern Equestria
>>292205>Americans are generally ignorant about other countries
If that shitty leftist stereotype straight out of Hollywood has any merit to it, blame the leftist schools.
I fucking wish American kids were raised on "America is the greatest". It'd make them more likely to realize whites made America great.
Professor Noel Griffinio was famous for his book: “How the Pegasi became Ponies.” In it, he argued that while pegasi were regarded at first as non-ponies, they attained the attribute of “ponyness” as they assimilated into pony society.
Many have used this claim to argue that the recent waves of Yaks and Hippogriffs will be able to integrate. They argue that the only reason we see them as non-pony is because ponyness has not yet expanded to include them, as had once been the case with pegasi.
> The goal of abolishing the pony race is on its face so desirable that some may find it hard to believe that it could incur any opposition other than from committed pony supremacists... Keep bashing the dead stallions, and the live ones, and the mares too, until the social construct known as 'the pony race' is destroyed - not 'deconstructed' but destroyed.
