* ''Literature/AClockworkOrange'':
** Rehabilitating psychopathic criminals doesn't work, and incarceration is inhumane, so you might as well let them murder and rape and hope they get bored eventually.
** [[TeensAreMonsters All teenagers are murderous psychopaths]]. That's OK, though, because they'll grow out of it.



** It's ok to cut off limbs from people. They can be reattached, even if you don't do it, or the one who does it doesn't want to.

* ''Literature/ThePrincessDiaries'':
** It's okay to establish a hate site to trash your best friend, humiliate her in public, and generally make her life hell, as long as you feel really, ''really'' sorry about it years afterwards.
** Don't make friends with social outcasts unless/until you become one of them. [[PeerPressure Popular opinion]] is always right, except for when it turns against ''you.''
** All feminists are sexist, man-hating freaks [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking who can't appreciate pop culture or enjoy modern music]].
** [[AllMenArePerverts All men want sex]]. All the time. There is no such thing as an asexual man, or a man who abstains because of his religion, or a man who simply has other things on his mind. They all want sex, and if your boyfriend isn't pressuring you to sleep with him, he doesn't really love you.
** If your teacher doesn't give you an A, she's automatically a cruel, judgemental Philistine who's crushing your dreams and doesn't want you to succeed.
*** Also, talent always equals skill. If you're naturally good at writing, you will never need to grow as a writer or further hone your talent. Any teacher who tells you otherwise is crushing your dreams.

It's not like you have an almost unbeatable nearly magic army or seven you can use.

* ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'': People disagreeing with your opinions will lead to the collapse of civilization. ...No wait, that's an intended Aesop. Making America great again entails making a mockery of everything the country holds dear, including the Bill of Rights? ...Wait, that too is intended. The only bad thing about the Nazis was their support of industrialization? ...No, even that is intentional. Slavery is only bad when Muslims do it? ...What, even ''that''? Okay, how about, "it's acceptable to take credit for someone else's accomplishments if they're of a hated minority." ...You've got to be kidding me, the book supports that too? What about "America in the Great Depression had no problems and we should go back to it. That means women and minitities better know their place." ...Wait, [[PropagandaMachine that's literally the premise of the whole book]]. Environmentalists are literally TooDumbToLive? ...Why am I not surprised that's deliberate by now? [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Cold fusion works?]] ...''You've gotta be kidding me!''

** All right then, how about, "Since humans prefer to defend the first worldview they hear about, instead of changing their beliefs to accommodate the facts, ideologies are inherently bad, and even if yours is in favor of freedom and civilization, fighting to defend it will inevitably [[HeWhoFightsMonsters make you no better than]] those who promote totalitarianism and oppression." What, that seems like a genuine Aesop whose advice one ought to follow? [[BadIsGoodAndGoodIsBad That's why it's warped.]]
