If people were really "for" capitalism, the greedy, gold-hoarding dragon would be the hero in every story.

Countdown until I get Reply Guy'd starts now, I suppose. Accepting early bets as to whether it will be about my employment status or that I just don't "understand" economics.

@hafnia look, the villagers whose money was stolen by the dragon could sell their cottages to someone whose money wasnt stolen by the dragon, and wants to live near a money stealing dragon, take that money without the dragon stealing it, and buy a cottage somewhere else! Economics!

@hafnia the dragon has no impact on anyone's self interested rational decision making process!
