While Code Bronze shaming language covers personal calamities, it doesn’t cover related shaming language that exists at a larger level. For example, one piece of shaming language I have seen used is “if you don’t have kids, medicare and social security will collapse”. That shaming language isn’t about a failure to have a legacy, but a failure to do a (supposed) duty which can be about more than just having children. It’s the charge of being a leech on society. This I’m calling Code Olive since leeches can be the color of olive.
Charge Of Being A Leech On Society (Code Olive)
Discussion: The target is accused of failing to do his duty to society or is accused of being a leech on society. Examples:
- If you don’t have children, medicare and social security will collapse.
- We all have to contribute to society.
- Women are weaker than men so men must lead women.
- How dare you choose to work as little as possible? You’re no different than a welfare bum.
- You’re a leech on society and/or the government.
Response: Men have to freedom to choose how they live their lives. Men are not required to work just to produce maximum tax revenue for the government or to ensure the stability of government programs. Since society has become hostile to men, there is no reason for a man to support such a society. If society wants men to do things for it, then society has a reciprocal duty to men. Duty can not be one sided. It is a logical choice for a man to remove his productive capacity for a society that doesn’t value him and is hostile to him.
