Friedrich Nietzsche ... he must be the one and only author so far to have had his name and his face ponified. :-)

How do you suppose she'd look as a senior citizen?  (Think Granny Smith.)

Blankflank dweebs just lack the will to power. Contempt for them is well deserved.

Silver Spoon shown as having interests? An independent thinker influenced by others NOT Diamond Tiara? Now that sounds more like the assertive free thinker who just happens to find Diamond charming for her own reasons I see and love on the show. lol

Adorable beyond belief Spoon Spoon you drew there. She's got such a cute face. She's my favorite glasses pony. <3

Well, according to Nietzche, life is meaningless and amoral; the universe is cruel, uncaring and heartless; death, pain and suffering are inevitable; and people are flawed. And yet despite it all, it is possible, given enough determination and clarity of purpose, instead of surrendering to rage, apathy or depression at this revelation, a person could accept this fatalistic outlook and still create meaning and purpose for one's own existence, striving to improve oneself in all ways, and help others do the same, for as long as the person could live, thus embodying the ideal of the anti-nihilistic 'Ubermensch' Or in this case, the 'Uberpferd'.

That's the gist of his philosophy, from what I can tell. 

She's probably going to be fine.

Lol. Überpferd. Good one.
The problem with Nietzsche is that he tends to over-write his works, such that his meaning becomes vague and more prone to interpretation. Don't get me wrong, I like Nietzsche. (it's just that his works are that of a stereotypical intp)

Overwriting wasn't just a Nietzsche problem. It was a problem of most philosophers and political thinkers of the time. Marx, Feuerbach, Kant, and many others wrote paragraphs denser than a neutron star.

I do agree about the universe though. We exist on a mote of dust drifting in infinite space, and any attempts to leave it result in death by radiation (which is why we stay here most of the time and only venture as far as the moon) We have a lot against us, but by working together and overcoming the limitations the universe presents us with, we will one day overcome the barrier and venture to the stars. IF we work together.

Eventually though, we may overcome death which will invite a whole new set of problems we will face, but in exchange hopefully we gain more from it than we lose.

Nobody is, not 100% anyway.

Spoon would do well to broaden her reading list a bit--some pony-equivent Rousseau, Hobbes, Locke, etc. would "balance things out", or at least give insight into alternate viewpoints.

Maybe not. There's also Immanuel Kant.

“And so, onwards... along a path of wisdom, with a hearty tread, a hearty confidence.. however you may be, be your own source of experience. Throw off your discontent about your nature. Forgive yourself your own self. You have it in your power to merge everything you have lived through- false starts, errors, delusions, passions, your loves and your hopes- into your goal, with nothing left over.”

--- Friedrich Nietzsche
