While I share your sentiment many of us still have lots to lose: I have a great deal of debt but I still make my mortgage payments - I have a family and if I decide to really "live on the edge" my family will be homeless. Do I really have a choice? If I quit my job I will be penniless, I will lose my health insurance, etc... It would seem that those who have already lost their jobs, their homes, their lives are in the position you describe. But the vast majority of us hang on by a thread, near the precipice, not having fallen into the abyss. It is alot to ask of us as we stand precariously, trying to hold on to the last vestiges of a middle class life. That is not to say you are wrong but rather that I atleast lack the courage (or selfishness) to act.
