I just went back and read your whole original thread.
You got backlash because of the way
you came across, not because of what you said.
Many of the first replies tried to address your concerns (rant). But despite this topic, I don't think many here would agree with your original post that retirement is impossible for the average person.
It's unlikely to happen at the level that person wants, due to their own choices, but it's completely possible. Regarding your final sentence, that IS the land of the free. People are free to make their own retirement choices, good or bad.
