* In ''Serenity'', the citizens of Miranda were exposed to an airborne chemical which was designed to suppress criminal impulse. However, [[spoiler:the drug ended up suppressing ''all'' impulses, leading to the majority of the population succumbing to fatal levels of apathy as they simply stopped caring about sustaining themselves. What made the mishap worse was the adverse reactions exhibited in a handful of cases. Instead of their impulses being suppressed, their ''ability to resist impulse'' was suppressed to the extent where they were driven murderously insane. Long story short, the Alliance '''created the Reapers'''. It's this scandal which allows Mal and his crew to come away from the movie with anything resembling a victory.]]

* For the first few months following "Operation: Iraqi Freedom," whenever an Allied aircraft dropped a bomb, everyone in Baghdad ran for cover, and thanked their maker that they hadn't been blown to smithereens. Eventually, the concussive blasts were thought of as if they were lightning strikes, it happened and the people went about their way. If they were away from home, they checked if the dust cloud was rising from their neighborhood, if it wasn't, they ignored it, and continued to do what they were doing.

* ''Literature/MartinFierro'': Martin Fierro was this even before [[{{FinalSolution}} all his disgraces]]: At the second song, he says that he didnít want to vote in the last election because [[{{DumbIsGood}} ''He is a gaucho redondo (dumb) and those things do not interest him'']]. Notice that he never rebels against the authorities, he just runs away from them. This is the case with all the [[{{Gaucho}} gauchos:]] in RealLife, they were exterminated by their goverment in only a few years.

** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': Regularly discussed. Many of the villains bring up the fact they can do the horrible things they've done because the general public are more interested in being told what to do than doing what's right on their own. In fact, the Phantom Thieves decide to continue their activities after the first dungeon in order to encourage people to not be afraid and apathetic anymore. [[spoiler:It is revealed near the end of the game that Mementos is actually the Palace of Tokyo's general population, created by [[AdultFear Adult Fears]] such as a loss of livelihood, status, and family. These fears prevent them from challenging the status quo that allow the villains to get away with their crimes. Of the SevenDeadlySins the Palaces and their creators represent, Mementos and humanity represent "Sloth".]]
