The argument for retirement is an erroneous one. It assumes that our goal in life is to amass the right amount of wealth so that we can shut down our productivity at a certain age and revel in our material success and free time. . . . We should never abandon the world of work and productivity for a world of inactivity, a world that doesn't challenge us, a world that isolates us from our spiritual quest.
