What more could he possibly get out of life.
Mastering a useful skill, championing a noble cause, recognition for something other than whose vagina he popped out of and whose vagina he presumably must have popped into?

Flying is a useful skill and I'm sure many of those charities the royals are involved with could be considered a noble cause.

I heard on Reddit he was funny and charismatic, but on Twitter, they say he is a racist.

So he's a funny racist???

In all seriousness, He did serve in World War 2, and I like the fact he fought back against the nazis.

Indeed, he was a combatant in one of the UK's greatest naval victories of WW2. In a sense, he wasn't at a great deal of risk in that battle, given the Royal Navy caught the Italian fleet completely unawares and demolished a whole cruiser squadron so quickly that it didn't even have time to shoot back.

Wonder how he felt when the country of his wife went on to install Nazi collaborators in the post-war of the country he was supposedly a prince of.

Explaining who won WW2 to the ghost of an Allied solider who died at, say, Normandy ranks up there with explaining anti-vaxxers to the ghost of Louis Pasteur for awkwardness.

Talking to the ghost of Karl Marx about modern views of communism is a mixed bag, but start off with saying you went to a state funded school instead of a factory as a kid and it's not that bad.

Might be a reason why there's only nice things said about him on reddit

I am not sure what point you are making here. Could you elaborate?

I don't have much of a point, just bemoaning modern society, and how things people have fought hard for have been thrown away.

And I sound really old typing that.

is there something in the water over there?

Bah, killjoy.

Karl Marx at least wrote extensively about the underlying mechanisms which caused this.

"Things" people fought hard for were being thrown away even while those people were fighting for those "things". Spare me the drivel.
