What happened to seeing money for what it is: the public saying, "You did a good job. We believe you did a good enough job, in fact, that we'll pay you so you can do it again instead of flipping burgers."?

That's all the money is for. It isn't the end. It's the means. When you lose sight of that, you're a hack. Just a prostitute with a keyboard and a camera.
"Now I did a job -- and got nothin' but trouble since I did it, not to mention more than a few unkind words as regard to my character, so let me make this abundantly clear: I do the job... and then I get paid. Go run your little world."
