* Similarly, certain kinds of products are considered to be Post-Scarcity goods. An excellent example is computer software, which, once written, can be infinitely duplicated at virtually zero cost.
* "Postcolonialism" is a more contentious example of this trope, in the sense that it seems to have taken on two distinctly different meanings that are only tangentially related. The first meaning seems to refer simply to the state of the world after the golden age of colonialism (that is, from the 15th century to the early 20th). The second one refers to the kinds of sociological and economic ideologies and analyses that first emerged during the mid 20th-century, which examined the impact and implications of colonialism in-depth, often being highly critical towards colonialism and Occidentalism for their suppression (and in some cases total erasure) of cultures and people outside what is typically defined as the Western world.

Literature/TheHeroWithAThousandFaces is a structuralist work for example. Poststructrulaist literary theory, amongst other things, critiques and rejects the binaries structuralism worked in ([[BlackAndWhiteMorality good vs evil]], [[RedOniBlueOni red vs blue]], all of premodern gender theory) and the colonialist tendencies of structuralist literary crtitique to label and attempt to force parts of other cultures into Western archetypes.
