    To feel secure?

    Is less than 10K enough? Between 10K-50K, or 50K and over in order to feel you have a safe "cushion"?

    five million seems like the right number but I'm sure I wouldn't feel secure when I got to that point

    This but if I did a reality check and did some calculations, I bet I would need more.

    Secure from what?

    If you mean losing your job, I would say at least 6 months expenses (mortgage, car, bills, food etc).
    Depending on your lifestyle, a good number may be 20-25k in cash.

    Roof over head - costs money = security
    Food for family - costs money = security
    Ability to afford medical care - costs money = security
    clothes for family - costs money = security

    should I go on?

    money buys shelter, giving you time to survive. same with food
    money buys healthcare, giving you more time to live.
    money buys clothes, protecting you from the environment.

    you're still gonna die

    it does not provide security; it is fiat, and can be erased in the blink of an eye

    You are correct on one thing. The US dropped the gold standard and our currency is fiat. The rest is bullshit. OK, to be fair, I know we are all going to die. Why don't you, right now, give away all of your money, home, possessions etc. Go ahead and keep the clothes you are wearing. How secure are you going to feel tonight when you are sleeping on a park bench?
