All a sustained market downturn means if you're in your 20s/30s is "A bunch of investors want to sell you the future, at a substantial discount to its actual worth -- and the sale will last years!"

A downturn when you've achieved FIRE with adequate savings means... nothing at all. That 4% safe withdrawl rate is conservative for a reason -- its almost impossible to exhaust your savings in any conditions we've ever observed.
