They seem mutually beneficial and detrimental to each other all at once. How very interesting... I shall say that Hasbro is First and the Brony Hive-mind is Second. Without the hive-mind, Hasbro cannot learn from its mistakes despite its claims and without Hasbro, the hive-mind lacks purpose. Yin and Yang... One can exist without the other but both have everything to lose. What point are you trying to illustrate with this? The mutual futility of either's endeavors to please the other? That it is a struggle without end because of the stubborn pride of both?
Hmm... Well depending on how you look at it, it could go either way... I think.
Because, bronies be causing trouble up in Hasbro's neighborhood, but Hasbro is also a lame-o corporation that puts a damper on the bronyverse. And it seems, like others have mentioned, that it's an endless cycle in which nobody learns and nothing changes...
Final verdict: for the most part, bronies=1 and Hasbro=2
This was an interesting read. I'm thinking of checking Beckett's "Endgame" now. As for the message of this... Well, you could make arguments for both sides so let's just say that it gets people thinking and that's already a pretty good thing.
Well considering how both 1 and 2 drag each other down, it's still hard to place. For all we know, they could be one AND the other. Hasbro can be 1 or 2 yet the bronies can be 2 or 1. It works both ways.
