* ''Webcomic/PennyArcade'' once had Tycho (Jerry Holkins) writing about a news story in which a school shooting was speculated to have been induced by video games. Jerry then wrote an impassioned treatise on how that claim was completely ridiculous, how people who do horrible things will try to justify it any way they can so as to avoid responsibility, and ended by saying (paraphrased) "If you're bullied, I'm right there with you. If you're hurting, I'm standing by your side. The instant you take up a weapon, I cannot and will not support you."

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LiG0AE8zdTU Confessions of a Republican]], a 1964 election campaign ad, a jittery Republican voter, played by actor William Bogert expresses his doubts about Barry Goldwater. It drops several about why voting for a guy just because he was a member of your party is bad if the guy acts irresponsible. While there was a clear bias in the message, the actor, William Bogert, was a real Republican expressing his fears about Goldwater. It was so powerful the 2016 Clinton made one referencing Donald Trump.

* [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10199357/11/Let-the-Storm-Rage-On Let the Storm Rage On]], a ''[[Disney/{{Frozen}}]]'' fanfic, has Hans repeatedly hammer home his belief that WithGreatPowerComesGreatResponsibility when one is in power. And shirking responsibility, or the consequences of poorly used power, is the epitome of poor rulership. He hammers this to Elsa in response to her accidental freezing of Arendelle, and how she hid away from the world while she was growing up. It comes off as a necessary ToughLove bit of advice, rather than being preachy.

* The LuckyStar fanfic [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9346160/1/Bonds Bonds]] describes how school massacres take place, and how ''everyone'' is at fault for it. Even though they cannot truly be justified, you really can't blame Izumi for losing all hope in life and wanting to just end it on a literal bang. Blame her parents, for demanding perfection from her and imposing their will on her to inherit their company instead of letting her make her own decisions and accepting her for how much she was capable of achieving; the Hunt Club, for the way everyone in it treated her; anyone else who knew what was going on, for not speaking up; the school, for most likely refusing to do anything about it; and the police, for doing jack shit to save anyone from her rampage. Honor is a big deal in Japan, and in no situation does it rear its ugly head higher than here, with ''everybody'' paying the price for what certain students did to her and her fellow otaku and the lack of action taken by the school faculty.
