“The FIRE community is made up of strong people with clear views regarding what they consider the “right” way to FIRE. LeanFIRE is by far the favourite approach, based on reducing expenses to the bare minimum and living a frugal life.
There is, however, a much smaller tribe that advocates for a different way of doing things. Their goal is to increase income in order to be able to afford more of the good things in life, like eating out at restaurants or travelling. This is the fatFIRE movement.”
