* Butters gives one of these on ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''. However, he is not arguing against the destruction of humanity; he is just arguing that [[SillyRabbitCynicismIsForLosers life is too good to waste on being emo]].

* ''[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings The Fellowship of the Ring]]'': Boromir's speech to Aragorn, shortly before the Breaking of the Fellowship. Though not a straight subversion of this trope, the story demonstrates a few scenes later that the reality of human nature is [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism uglier than Boromir's speech makes it out to be]].

* After it was annexed by the United States as a result of the SpanishAmericanWar, the Philippines was perceived as a community of "barbarians" incapable of self-government. US Representative Henry A. Cooper, lobbying for management of Philippine affairs, recited "Mi Ultimo Adios," the parting poem of slain Philippine hero Jose Rizal, before the United States Congress. Realizing the nobility of the piece's author, his fellow congressmen enacted the Philippine Bill of 1902 enabling self-government (later known as the Philippine Organic Act of 1902), despite the fact that the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act was still in effect and African Americans had yet to be granted equal rights as US citizens. It created the Philippine Assembly, appointed two Filipino delegates to the American Congress, extended the US Bill of Rights to Filipinos, and laid the foundation for an autonomous government. The colony was on its way to independence even before WWII.

This will lead into the hero responding with the Patrick Stewart Speech, in which he may concede that humans are weak (at least for the moment), but there is much that is noble about humanity as well. He notes that they have much potential, and he admires humans' capacity for [[PowerOfLove love]][=/=][[PowerOfFriendship friendship]][=/=][[AFriendInNeed loyalty]][=/=][[HeroicSpirit courage]][=/=][[{{Determinator}} persistence]][=/=]whatever virtue it is the writers want to {{Aesop}}. If you hear the sentences "There is much that we could learn from them," or "We were NotSoDifferent, once," you're likely in the midst of a Patrick Stewart Speech.
