Capitalists: But nobody would do anything without money as motivation!
Also capitalists: A raise? You should be happy just to be here, and getting to work with what you love!

@alva "video games wouldn't exist without capitalism" is one that really gets me, because not only are lots of people making them for free, but those employed in the industry have to basically give up their lives woking 1000 hour work weeks only to get laid off the moment the game ships

@Yza @alva Even more silly: video games and play in general go completely against the idea that humans are only motivated by money. You spend money to play a video game, and for the most part you don't earn money while "wasting" hours exploring the game world and getting skilled at playing it (unless you stream on Twitch or mine in-game currency or something).
