* In Literature/GodEmperorOfDune, Leto II determines that the only way to prevent an energy crisis and galactic war leading to the extinction of mankind is to establish himself as a tyrannical, semi-immortal God Emperor. Though this is a bit of a subversion, since the problem was that humans wouldn't leave their safety zone of the known star systems unless they were oppressed and ''forced'' to stay there for a [[strike:couple centuries]] 3,500 years. Once Leto died, every major human civilization was then free to explore the universe again, in a bit of reverse psychology. Of course [[OmniscientMoralityLicense he knew it would happen that way]].

* ''Radio/OurMissBrooks'': This is Mr. Conklin's belief, leastways when it comes to running a high school. Mr. Conklin essentially says as much to Miss Brooks in "Spare That Rod!". Mr. Conklin's military strictness would later put him under the opprobrium of the school board president, Mr. Stone, in the [[TheMovie theatrical]] [[GrandFinale series finale.]]
