For essentially all of human history, people have had to work in order to feed themselves. If they stopped working, they died. If they lived long enough that they were too old to work, their families or communities took care of them. This idea of "retirement" is pretty new. When did we start to believe that people are "owed" a retirement? Retirement is something you save for on your own, or enter into a contract of some kind with an employer to provide for you. It's not something you're guaranteed. It's not something you "deserve." It's something you have to figure out, and if you can't figure it out or luck goes against you, then you have to work until you die. That's just the way it is. If you won't take care of yourself, you can't expect anyone else to.
