I originally favored option B. Having read all this and especially
having seen the co-op example, I think option A is definitely superior
for this kind of intro video.
To echo what someone said earlier, we should define ourselves by our
own merits, not by contrast to something else. Option B certainly
strengthens the argument (at the cost of becoming more divisive), but I
would be opposed to putting any more than a single sentence that
mentions how "when we can't solve the snowdrift dilemma, turn to club
goods, instead." At least for this video, which will hopefully be the
most widely viewed media, we should steer far clear of casting shade on
club goods (and by extension, those who use them); making people feel
bad for using or supporting club goods is counterproductive because it
is exclusionary. See also:
So, I think you two are getting lost in semantics of the metaphor that
are, IMO, irrelevant, given that we've decided on option A.
