what you can do for yourself

Can, but won't.

And I use can liberally. If more people were willing to do this on their own with adequent time and energy, we would not have so many people in such dire financial state as it pertains to their retirement assets.

We would not see so many people that let their emotion keep them in company stock as they watched it go to zero.

We would not see so many people that today are still sitting on 100% bonds because they fear the stock market more than they fear an increase in interest rates.

No one forces someone to use an online advisor so why critize a cheaper source of services for people that clearly need help - through their own fault or otherwise?
