Pony Lands Regional Message Board
Citizens staged a mass protest against 'monolithic' tax rates after the government recently instituted the 'Anything That's Purple' tax.
Well I'm screwed. Almost everything in my nation has purple in it. Even my pretty mane.
Nobody really that much cares, but anyway.
Their technology is incredibly "barbaric," "primitive," etc, when compared to how they interact socially. My biggest point was that Equestrian technology seems to lag behind Equestrian values.
Their government, despite being an absolute monarchy, appears incredibly corruption-free. (Although banishment to the moon is questionable... and turning Discord into stone. Their system of justice clearly isn't too advanced.) Moreover, their military is pathetic, which isn't necessarily bad, because it implies an extended period of peace. And there is the point I made previously that for whatever reason, friendship seems to have some mystical properties. The only means by which the ponies could have learned to exploit this was by being nice.
You kinda do against Trained soldiers unless you result to cheap shots or unfair combat e.g throwing sand in eyes, groin shots and nipple cripples etc
Heh, time to switch colour then.
This is probably because this is mainly a story about six pony friends and their friendship adventures instead of epic battles between horses (even if the show may feature epic battles). Also needing to be taken into account is no one really knows what year or era any of this takes place. It's obvious this doesn't even take place in a world with humans, so the ponies basically have to invent their own technology.
Also take into account that since all of them are sapient, the unicorns would have ruled supreme if people take into account realism. The magic-weilders could manipulate small objects, delicate pieces of machinery that would ensure their dominance.
And not take into account the Hearth's Warming Eve episode?
Also, realism? In a world with talking ponies and magic? That's just silly! Besides racists aren't known for love and tolerance, and would thus ruin the mood of this show.
I'm not sure how Fluttershy can sew, but since according to canon she obviously can, manipulating small objects doesn't seem too limiting.
I do agree that unicorn magic seems more useful than what the other pony tribes get (even though flight is pretty neat), but it wouldn't inevitably lead to dominance, especially since combat is one area where brute force (and staying out of your enemies' reach) can be pretty useful, especially at lower levels of technology.
It's also possible to interpret unicorns as having once been in charge (they seem to be cast as nobles far more often than other ponies), but their power having been eroded in recent times due to civil rights movements. (Where "recent times" might be "starting over a thousand years ago", because Celestia.)
