* ''VideoGames/TeamFortress2'' can be viewed as this, if the your definition of values is broad enough to include the ideals of what a video game fun and enjoyable. Since the game spent over a decade in development and originated from a mod from the 90s, the game uses conventions typical of first person shooters in the era it was conceived but nearly extinct when it was released. These "outdated" features like a rigid diverse class base, completely sacrificing any sense of realism for the sake of game play, the lack of regenerating health, and weapons being locked to the player rather than spawn points on the map ironically make the game feel like a breath of fresh air in an era where first person shooters were trying as hard as they could to copy the same model.

Combined with the newer elements it brought to the table, it effectively popularised the HeroShooter subgenre.

* ''Literature/OrsonScottCardsEmpire'' was written with the concept of a second American Civil War in mind. As Card states in the afterword for the book, it was depressingly easy to imagine because of the BlackAndWhiteInsanity (or Red and Blue Insanity) in America's political system. While the book does suffer from a BrokenAesop by only portraying liberals as extremist, it doesn't negate his point about how extreme and dogmatic both sides of the American political system have become in the years since it was written and how normal, sane people with more moderate views get lumped together with the extremists on their side.

* A frequent topic discussed in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' was that men and women are NotSoDifferent. Considering that gender roles have become a much more controversial issue nowadays, this was definitely AnAesop that was ahead of its time.

Furthermore, while Kaworu is a morally gray character in his every appearance, the ambiguously queer love between him and [[TheHero Shinji]] is never subject to any homophobia in the text proper. And while Kaworu always ended up [[spoiler:[[BuryYourGays being buried by the end of his appearance]]]], [[CrapsackWorld that's also just the way Evangelion rolls.]]

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': Overlapping with HarsherInHindsight, the theme of police's relation with society became more relevant under controversy of PoliceBrutality and Police Shootings Controversy in the US. This is more pronounced in the "Democracy" storyline and other stories dealing with questioning the limits of the Judges' powers and the effectiveness of the Judge system.

** "Cripple Fight", which teaches how trying to shut down people's freedoms because their bigots is never going to achieve equality, which like the example above is becoming more and more prevalent with political correctness

* Music/{{Chicago}}'s [[https://youtu.be/H8zLGZi7-Yk Dialogue(Parts I and II)]], from 1972, is a conversation between two young people; the first is concerned about such things as war, starvation, and repression, while the second maintains that "everything is fine." As Part I comes to a close, the first character seems to endorse the other's worldview:

* The E.M. Forster story "[[http://archive.ncsa.illinois.edu/prajlich/forster.html The Machine Stops]]" must have seemed wildly far-fetched when it was published in 1909. Now, aspects of the story make one wonder if Forster had done some time-traveling to the early 21st century.

* As stated by [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CcHt9tW8oo0 this video]], the episode "Ripped Pants" of ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' perfectly captures the fleeting nature of meme culture even when it was released in 1999. By ripping his pants, [=SpongeBob=] becomes the most popular guy on the beach, but by trying to ride on its fame a little too much, the joke loses its value, alienating even his closest friends.

** Mr. Hankey The Christmas Poo, which shows how removing everything that can be considered remotely offensive by anyone would make things that used to be fun outright boring.
** Cripple Fight, which teaches how trying to shut down people's freedoms because their bigots is never going to achieve equality, which like the example above is becoming more and more prevalent with political correctness
** Miss Teacher Bangs A Boy, which mocks how lenient society is on female rapists, even if their victims are children.
** Stupid Spoiled Whore Playset, which shows what happens when young girls are looking up to the wrong role models, particularly ones who dress and act completely inappropriate.
** Douche And Turd, which summarized elections in 10 words: "It's always between a giant douche and a turd sandwich." Season 20--more specifically [[Recap/SouthParkS20E1MemberBerries Member Berries]]--even brought the joke back during the 2016 election, which had two particularly unpopular presidential candidates.
** Trapper Keeper satirized the outcome of the 2000 election with Rosie O'Donnell objecting to the results of the kindergarten's student election just because her nephew didn't win. This episode became relevant again in 2016 when several Americans who were unhappy with the election results began protesting and rioting because they refused to accept their candidate lost.
** Cherokee Hair Tampons, which is about Kyle nearly dying from kidney disease after his mother puts her faith into fraudulent all-natural medicine. This episode is a whole lot more relevant with the recent rise in anti vaccination movements and the death of Steve Jobs.
** Goobacks, which originally aired in 2004, is about people from the future traveling to the past to find work, and used as a commentary on the issues with immigration, especially from Mexico. It's acknowledged that [[BothSidesHaveAPoint the people from the future did have it bad in their time period, but also brings up the fact that they have been stealing jobs from people from the present and have ultimately been making things worse for them]], and that there is no easy solution. In addition, the episode's TakeAThirdOption to make their "time period" (or metaphor for home countries that migrants came from) better can be just as relevant since many proponents for foreign aids and living standard improvements in poorer countries argued that these would reduce undocumented migrants.
