** Kyle's scathing review of ''Film/{{Melancholia}}'' is basically one long argument against romanticizing clinical depression and treating despair as "poignant". As Kyle eloquently points out: all of life is built upon ''change'' and ''moving forward'', and depression is a ''disease'' that makes that impossible to do; works of art shouldn't be celebrated for making depression look beautiful, because that ignores the simple fact that depression '''can''' and '''must''' be overcome. In short, [[TrueArtIsAngsty True Art is Not, in fact, "Angsty"]].

** His review of the Malian fantasy film ''Film/{{Yeelen}}'' includes an impeccably researched--but utterly unsubtle--exploration of the concept of hardline Nationalism, arguing that it's futile and self-defeating to try to succinctly define an entire nation's identity--particularly since every major nation on Earth is a complex patchwork of cultures that's nearly impossible to concisely represent without leaving out at least one marginalized group.

* ''{{Exalted}}'' has, as setting rules: that some actions can never truly taken back, and that while violence can be an attractive or even necessary tool, it can not make things better on its own. Rather important gameplay mechanics to drop in when many competing products have teams of murderhobos roaming the field.

* ''Half the Sky'' is very blunt on its [[UnreliableNarrator possibly biased]] [[AuthorTract worldview that]] atrocities against women continue today (ex. sexual slavery, human trafficking, and female illiteracy), especially in third-world countries. And it also states that the weak economic power that these countries have because of their oppressive misogyny.

*** Furthermore, Lucy herself seems to be the only one who actually has any issues with the thing. The people who told Lucy presumably may just wanted to let her know (if they had any issue, they probably would've told Linus themselves and Linus' shock implies no one has mentioned it before.) It does ultimately point out that sometimes problems that aren't really problems are only problems because people make them out to be.

* An unspoken Aesop is displayed during the Tobuscus scandal and the Pewdiepie anti-antisemitism scandal. The Aesop highlights the dangers of mob mentality and how it can be easily manipulated on the internet. This Aesop also applies to over sensitivity, reoccurring jokes on the internet are out of context scenes involving racism, sexuality, gender equality, mental disabilities, etc. Some people would say that the offended people are being intolerant rather than feeling insulted by the joke or are simply confused by it or they refuse to comply due to its ridiculousness. On the other hand people do want to raise awareness of issues and promote equality but mob mentality may involve peer pressure or they feel offended for someone else. The Aesop speaks volumes about the dangers of mob mentality, altruism and sensitivity.
