I believe Faust herself said as Luna regains her power, she will continue to grow.

Should have done proof reading and planning, would have made the piece smoother, changed some words and Zecora is not a unicorn (doesn't invalidate that point though).

Well, there is plenty of racism (speciesism) in the Empire, once it's been established. YAY for Human High Culture. If anyone is wondering my favorite period in Star Wars is the period from the last decades of the Republic through the Rebellion, which covers all of the movies, and I'm a big reader of EU.  ;D

Should have meant anti-racist, this time it is the survivalists who are the anti-racists, while the NWO/UN/Galactic Empire that is the racist/specieist group.

Also, largeham, what do you think of Princess Celestia banishing Princess Luna to the moon? Kinda seems like a power play to me. Originally, Celestia and Luna ruled side-by-side, but with Luna gone Celestia could develop Equestria into whatever she wanted, with herself as the dictator. And furthermore, when Luna returns, she is still in a child-like form while Celestia has matured, thus ensuring that she will never hold the same amount of power as Celestia even though they are both from the royal family. Furthermore, there are yearly festivals meant to insult Nightmare Moon and stories accusing her of cannibalism (as told by Zecora) - these dehumanizing depictions also, by extension, dehumanize Luna herself. I've never watched the show a lot, but hey, I try.

Haven't looked much into that. Indeed, maybe the Luna/Celestia struggle is like the Stalin/Trotsky struggle of the 20s, eventually one was kicked out. This is an unexplored topic, one could also say that Celestia is some what of an outsider, she has aspects of all three pony types, yet she spends her time with either unicorns or pegasi. Maybe the unicorn>pegasus>earth pony system is native to Equestria and Celestia just managed to take control and is courting the top two groups for support. Of course, the episodes that talk about the founding of Equestria dispute this, but maybe it's all just propaganda?

Celestia banished Luna to the moon a thousand years ago, putting her age at over 1000 years. I don't know what the average lifespan of other ponies are, but either way she is immensely old. It's definitely long enough of a time to "erase history," so to speak.
