First, a definition of terms . . .

FIRE is a movement whose goal is financial independence and retiring early. The model is particularly popular among millennials, gaining traction through online communities via information shared in blogs, podcasts, and online discussion forums. Those seeking to attain the goals of FIRE intentionally increase the rate by which they save their income through simple living or generating secondary and passive streams of income. The goal is to save an amount for which the interest generated from investments provides enough money for living expenses in perpetuity.

This movement has its pitfalls, critics and some people who just don't get it.
