In the Civilization games, when barbarians capture our exposed worker units and convert them to their faction, they always tend to run away when we try to recapture them, like they never wanted to be part of our empire in the first place. White Lightning HQ's video has an explanation for this strange behaviour.

They have a point. Building roads for an immortal dictator for 12000 years can be depressing.
