Retire Retirement. Why must people have to defend their non-disengagement from work.  After all, retirement is a social construction, promoted as a "Golden Years" reward, but in reality, created to make room for younger workers.  

There is an argument to be made that society's creation of "retirement" has resulted in a great many, well-documented maladies ranging from physical diseases, mental disorders, and social problems.  The peer-reviewed research literature is replete with such data.  To retire, or not to retire, that is the question not  everyone needs, wants, or should be made to ponder.
