This anguished bit of agitprop showed up in, of all places, Yahoo! Answers:
It's a tad hard for me to fathom that such an innocent magical show actually took a political position that insults the notion of equality or collective responsibility. I am referring to a set of episodes in the Season 5 called "The Cutie map" where the Mane 6 visit a village that is essentially Ayn Rand's "Anthem" turned into ponies. Everyone is equal, everything looks the same, they sing triumphant choirs of how they are but mere cells to the community, food tastes bland, and those who don't follow the status quo are forced to by fear tactics.
As a leftist myself, I'm of course offended by these totalitarian stereotypes of democratic socialism. But beyond that I'm just surprised that instead of some dumb *** Fox News documentary, this is MLP propagating this BS.
Of course, the hilarious aspect of this is that "democratic socialism" works only to the extent that it is totalitarian: the moment someone steps off the page, the entire illusion starts to unravel. It was always thus, and thus shall it always be.
