Added DiffLines:

* Viciously mocked in ''Series/GarthMarenghisDarkplace'', with the titular ShowWithinAShow getting constantly derailed by the [[SmallNameBigEgo arrogant head writer's]] Author Tracts. Said tracts also double as [[SpaceWhaleAesop Space Whale]] and [[CluelessAesop Clueless]] Aesops, with bizarre lessons like "if doctors aren't paid a proper wage everyone will turn into man-apes". At one point the plot slams to a halt so the characters can moralize about why [[MerchandiseDriven you should always buy name-brand batteries]].

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/FrankCapra freely admitted that ''Film/ItsAWonderfulLife'' was created in part with the intention of combating a modern trend towards atheism. That hasn't stopped it from becoming a widely beloved Christmas classic which is often enjoyed by religious and secular people alike, however.

* Creator/DCSimpson tended to veer into left-wing politics in regards to her OrphanedSeries ''WebComic/RaineDog'', with {{Anvilicious}} soapboxing about "Blue State" Democrats and transgenderism, coupled with the UnfortunateImplications of the various intended metaphors. Previously, ''I Drew This!'' was pretty openly a political comic, but even her ''least'' political webcomic, ''WebComic/OzyAndMillie'', still had political commentary, usually with geoglobal politics boiled down to playground puppets, and famously [[GenkiGirl Millie's]] [[UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush Mr. W sockpuppet]]. (''PhoebeAndHerUnicorn'', however, has averted this trope, which may explain in part why it was the first Simpson comic to win syndication.)

* In projects where he's served as showrunner, Creator/RussellTDavies constitutes a mild case of this (for sufficiently flexible values of 'mild'). While he does tend to harp on about homosexuality and atheism a lot, he rarely cops out.

* Basically any fiction written by french philosophers/authors during the Age of Enlightenment is this.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse'' wants to make sure you know that the PowerOfFriendship conquers all and that LonersAreFreaks. The game mixes this in by making the central conflict a friendship vs loner dilemma while mixing it with BlackAndWhiteMorality, putting friendship as white and loner as black. This goes further than the central conflict however, with characters completely unrelated to it commenting on friendships power, and any character that make loner-like statements are either evil, smug or horribly misguided. All of which are either killed or made to realize the error of their ways.

* Creator/AlanMoore has openly stated that ''ComicBook/{{Promethea}}'' was created as a forum for his religious views. And the third volume of ''ComicBook/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'' can best be summarized as "[[OlderIsBetter Kids! What the devil's wrong with these kids today?]] [[NewMediaAreEvil Kids! Who could guess that they would turn out that way?]] [[NostalgiaFilter Why can't they be like we were, perfect in every way?]] [[TeensAreMonsters What's the matter with kids today?]]"

** ''Cinema Purgatorio'' is essentially a monthly rant about why classic cinema is awful and evil in horror-comic form.
