Think about all the money that would otherwise be in the economy or safely stored as investment and savings if SS didn't exist.
The question isn't, "How do you live without SS?", but, "What kind of world would we live in if SS wasn't enacted?". I know for fact if I contributed 8% of my paycheck over my lifetime to a savings account that had 0% interest on it I would still come out higher than it going to SS and then getting that back in old age.
