Do any moral fables today?

In general, I must say that the fable as a literary form as operedelenny genre, along with parables or fairy tale of all ages more slowly.And all because that morality with mockery, mounted inside it, it is directed to the eternal human vices.If we analyze the specific product of the "Squirrel" (fable) Krylova, we see that not too important, what the meaning of the work by the author.Much more important is that it shows itself.The fable also pursues excessive conceit of man about himself and his work.

Now when all the people in Russia, no matter what they did, call themselves managers becomes extremely topical moral work "Squirrel" (fable).And it's not that people of ordinary professions - cleaner or seller - not at all self-respect, not at all."All professions are important, all professions are necessary."The problem is that it creates a false self-esteem, which ultimately hurts most of all a person who suffers from it.
