The "Shadow Wars"

The machinations of the Cosmic Concepts have shaped the history of the Ponies for ten thousand years.  But now their mistakes have cracked the Cosmos, and the Shadows seep through to claim our own Universe for their dark and predatory purposes.  If they can gain a bridgehead on Equestria's Earth, this will be but the first step in a war of extermination against our continuum, a war which will end in the destruction of all life in our own Universe.

Can Celestia lead the defense of the Earth and save, not only her little Ponies, but all Earthlife, from utter annihilation?  Can Luna be redeemed from the Shadows and return to her former greatness?  Will Discord prove a powerful ally, or betray them all to damnation?  Can a new generation of powerful beings aid them enough to bring victory?  Or will the Earth die, drained of its vitality by the sinister Shadows?

Regarding in particular the recent rise of sympathy for HYDRA in Marvel Comics ...

I think this is part and parcel of the corruption and breaking of the Western Left by the logic of the Muslim attack on Civilization, and the counterattack led by America.

The Muslims are on the one hand the non-Western Other, which the Left feels driven to idealize and support, and on the other hand very obviously reactionary and regressive to an almost absurd degree, to the point where I wouldn't have written an enemy this evil if I were writing fiction, before it actually happened.  They not only treat women as second-class citizens but delight in sexually shaming and torturing them.  They outright murder homoesexuals.  They have no creativity save in the invention of new methods of execution and mutilation, and figuring out new ways to attack civilian targets with bombs and other concealed weapons.  They are Card-Carrying Bad Guys, and proud of it.

So the Left, facing this reality, has fractured.  A small portion, exemplified by Dawkins and Hitchens and their like, are defending their principles, including the parts of the Left that were still classical-liberal, against an obvious illiberal and reactionary foe.  And the larger portion -- and, sinisterly, the younger portion, led by pieces of organic flotsam in vaguely-human form like the odious Chomsky -- have decided to give up on their remaining principles to join in the anti-Western party.

You can see this very clearly in the European Leftist response to the Muslim rape-gang attacks on European women over the last few years.  We've seen "feminist" organizations blame the attacks on European women failing to be sufficiently careful and modest about where they go and how they dress, absolving the actual violent attackers of any responsibility for their own actions.  Earlier than that, European Leftists failed to stick up for homosexuals who were beaten by Muslim gangs for being gay.

Jews occupy an interesting position here in that Jewish culture has traditionally been (since about 1800 or so) Leftist, in the sense of being first Liberal and then (from about 1875 or so on) Socialist.  This was because European Conservatives (and until around 1925 or so the vast majority of Jews were European, not American) tended to be pro-Clerical and almost suicidally anti-Semitic (look at the Dreyfus Affair for an example of the French Army sticking by its metaphorical guns and hating Dreyfus, until the literal guns made possible by the treason of Esterhazy, the actual German agent in the Dreyfus Affair, rained death on them in the trenches of World War One, just outranging the French guns because Esterhazy had sold Germany the plans for the French artillery).

Jews in Europe voted Labor or Socialist, until they stopped voting because the influx of Muslims brought in by the Labor and Socialist parties made the streets so unsafe for the European Jews that they had to emigrate.  And in America, Jews happily voted in the anti-Semitic Obama, and are likely to happily vote for the anti-Semitic Hillary Clinton as well -- over Trump, who is as far as we can see no anti-Semite at all, and claims to be in favor of blocking further Muslim immigration into America.

What's been happening in the Left, everywhere, from around 1970 on is that it's been becoming anti-Semitic, the better to take a stand with their wonderful humanitarian Palestinian brothers who absolutely will not bring violence into Western countries, no siree not, even though they actually have been doing so since the 1960's.  The popularity of HYDRA in Marvel and the unppularity of referring to the Jewishness of sympathetic characters is just part and parcel of this.

Look at what's been happening on the American college campuses.  Anti-Semitism is rising and it's getting to the point that Jewish students are being attacked or pursued by pro-Palestinian mobs.

It's going to get worse before it gets better.  I hope to live long enough to see some of the current crop of Leftist Nazi sympathizers suffer for their perfidy, though.

I have no sympathy for them.  My parents' generation knew what to do with Nazis -- bombard their cities from the air and burn their families alive until the survivors begged to be allowed to surrender.  And Nazis named Ahmed and Mohammed are as much Nazis as those named Hans or Dietrich.

This is going to happen again.  Hopefully, mostly in non-Western lands, this time.

But I wouldn't sell any insurance policies to the Europeans.

Hey there!! Long time no see!  I liked your new story!:heart:

#871 · 5d, 12h ago · · ·

Thanks for the watch, I don't write pony fics myself but appreciate it none the less. I do draw pony occasionally.

But my preferred style I find tends to give everything I make a faintly bleeding undercurrent of horror.

Only a few stories are suited to that sort of thing.

Loved the stories so far, looking forward to working through the rest of your works.

It's quite believable to me that Twilight -- separated from most Ponies her age by her precocious and high intelligence when she was growing up -- may be afraid that now that she's a Princess she will be too set apart from normal Ponies.  Especially since in recent years she's actually been making lots of friends and is happy with her life.
