    Cool It has a profound lesson that doesn't bang anyone over the head

    In this sentence:

    "It has a profound lesson that doesn't bang anyone over the head"

    Please, what does "doesn't bang anyone over the head" mean?

    Thank You

    It could also mean that it doesn't criticise anyone harshly, couldn't it?
