The moral can be better understood in this context, because if everyone in the story had simply relied upon empirical data, then they wouldn't have been made a fool.

This is a moral that can be applied in many different situations, both historically and in modern times. Today, the majority of people accept information when it is backed up by scientific evidence. However, some of these same people might be less stringent in verifying the scientific evidence presented to them. It is important to do your own research to determine if information is valid or not.
Perhaps one scientific study was flawed, or many other studies have come to a different conclusion. It is even possible that someone was lying, like the two swindlers, about what the research says. The Emperor didn't need to rely on his advisors to tell him that the clothing was beautiful. He could have trusted his own eyes, weighed the 'fabric' to see it weighed nothing, or used his sense of feel to tell he felt nothing. Instead, the Emperor believed what everyone else was saying and did not trust his own research and experiences.
This story is about an emperor who was sold a magnificent set of clothes by two swindlers. The swindlers claimed that the clothing is invisible to anyone stupid or incompetent while they pretend to weave and sew using empty looms and needles. The Emperor sends men to report on the clothing, and they all pretend to see the magnificent clothes, not wanting to be seen as stupid or incompetent. The lie continues until a child says that the Emperor isn't wearing anything during a procession.
Slowly, everyone else starts to accept the truth that the Emperor is wearing nothing at all. The moral of this story is that we can't let pride keep us from speaking up when we know the truth. In particular, the importance of empirical data , evidence that can be observed through the senses, is emphasized in this story. Science and our senses should be trusted instead of magic and superstitions. It's also important to do our own research and determine what is true instead of blindly trusting what anyone else claims.
