* In the anime/manga of ''Literature/TheHeroicLegendOfArslan'', slavery provides the economic backbone for Pars and has been a longstanding tradition of the country. Many traditional nobles despise Narsus for speaking about abolishing slavery and actually freeing his own slaves. When he was younger, Arslan genuinely believed for the captured Lusitanian soldiers, it would be beneficial for them to become slaves so they wouldn't have to worry about meals again.

* On the surface, ''Film/StarshipTroopers'' is a simple sci-fi action movie about SpaceMarines fighting [[BugWar giant alien bugs]], however, it's pretty clear from the early scenes that TheFederation is an agressive, militaristic facist society. None of the "heroes" think there is anything wrong with the way things are, are all enthusatic soldiers of the regime and happily consume/star in bombastic state propaganda.

** In "Sons and Daughters," Martok dresses Worf down for ''stopping'' a knife fight in the mess hall. Martok considers the fight--between Worf's son Alexander and a more senior warrior--to have been a potentially important formative experience for Alexander, and sees Worf's intervention as a failing in both his capacity as the ''Rotarran's'' first officer, and as Alexander's father.
---> '''Martok''': Ch'Targh might have cut him a little and maybe broken a few bones, but nothing more. You told me Alexander never wanted to be a warrior. Clearly he has changed his mind. Worf, you are his First Officer. Teach him to survive. The Jem'Hadar will be less forgiving than Ch'Targh.

** One character, who is from another planet, notes the odd "coincidence" that the social mores were all set down by a woman, including declaring all the dangerous professions to be men's work.

* ''LightNovel/TheIrregularAtMagicHighSchool'' is actually set in the future, but focuses on the ''very'' hidebound culture of magicians. ArrangedMarriage[=s=] are the norm, aristocrats are expected to keep their bloodlines 'pure' by not marrying into 'lesser' families, and genetically engineering one's slaves is perfectly acceptable. At the same time, it is played less directly with regard to the protagonists, because because of the political backbone of the series and the lack of moral assessment on the part of the author, many of the actions of the main characters can turn into a real ValuesDissonance for the western audience. For example, author almost literal use of [[spoiler: SuperpowerfulGenetics and RoyalInbreeding to justify BrotherSisterIncest as the central pairing, Simultaneously romanticizing the subordination to the feelings of a person you do not love]], although it seems that this turn can still be ripped off as immoral in the future end of the series.

The protagonists are social activists that other magicians consider quite radical, but even they don't bat an eye at certain practices that would be illegal today.

* ''Film/WonderWoman'': Downplayed, but it still comes up since it's set in WWI. Diana gets pretty quickly kicked out of a military summit in London for being a woman, and is treated condescendingly by Steve Trevor's superiors. Etta Candy offhandedly mentions the fact that women haven't been given the right to vote in the United Kingdom yet in a separate scene. Sameer talks about wishing to become an actor but being turned down for being the wrong color, and Chief mentions the treatment of the Native Americans by white Americans shortly prior to the start of World War I.

* ''Film/MississippiBurning'' illustrates the Ku Klux Klan-dominated atmosphere of the namesake state in 1964, with the antagonists frequently making use of racial slurs and cross-burnings.
