Equity markets track with inflation. Your 401k may be higher, but you can't buy more with it as the cost of goods will rise in reaction over time.

Nothing motivates like fear of starvation, poverty, or general lack of ability to take care of one's self or loved ones.
You will find no real data to show that govt helps more than it hurts "upward mobility"

And the new plans that do meet the ACA requirements are fricking expensive with super high deductibles. I have a wife and 2 kids and I'm self employed. Our plan cost about 650 per month with a 2500 deductible. Totally fit our budget and needs for healthcare.
