** Similarly to that, his review of ''TheLorax'' included the message that "fad is only one letter away from fade", showing that just doing what's popular for the moment will result in a lackluster product that is quickly forgotten.

* One episode of ''Monday Night Raw'' leading up to ''Unforgiven'' in September 2008 had ShawnMichaels drop an anvil that might, from some angles, appear a FamilyUnfriendlyAesop, but that is one that countless [[WideEyedIdealist Wide-Eyed Idealists]] out there desperately need to accept if they're ever going to get on with their lives. After Wrestling/ChrisJericho had smashed Shawn's head into a video screen and repeatedly jabbed him in the eye, half-blinding him and nearly ending his career, and then punched his wife Rebecca in the mouth and temporarily disfigured her - ''and'' had [[NeverMyFault refused to apologize for any of this]], claiming that Michaels had it all coming to him - Michaels asserted that some people are so wicked that they cannot possibly be forgiven, nor ever even want to be. And you can't just ignore them, because then they'll just keep going out to hurt countless more people; sometimes you ''must'' seek swift justice, severely punishing or even destroying a menacing human being. Of course, with Jericho's and Michaels's feud reaching its climax with the "Unsanctioned Match" at ''Unforgiven'' (in which both combatants relieved World Wrestling Entertainment from all legal responsibility for what they would do to each other), {{WWE}} [[BrokenAesop attempted to have it both ways]], having Michaels snap and beat Jericho unconscious, and then ''[[WhatTheHellHero continue]]'' to assault him even after it had become clear Jericho could no longer defend himself, until Michaels [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone finally managed to experience some remorse]]. Not to mention Jericho's appearance on ''Raw'' the night afterward, stripping down to show the still-unhealed welts on his upper torso where Michaels had [[ATasteOfTheLash thrashed him repeatedly with a strap]] and [[SarcasmMode "questioning"]] how a born-again Christian like Michaels [[JerkassHasAPoint could do such things]].

* ''FanFic/CrossAngeFutatsuSekaiNoBorder''- Norma are humans, but they can become "savage monsters" if broken enough. Even after the Light of Mana disappeared, said monsters roam the land massacring civilians, cannibalizing them and consuming their blood. Mana users are human, on the other hand, can learn to become human and by learning how to stand up for themselves, they've managed to become far better people.

* ''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.
