>> investors who heavily tilted toward equities have always done very well when holding for 25-30 years

I won't disagree with you there, but I'd hasten to add that no 25-30 year period has included anything like the past 15-20 years of bull. The one period that did is the one that ended in the great depression, and the 15 years following that market peak were terrible times for investors who held on.
