“It’s a joy for me because I’m one of those people who loves playing PlayStation and Xbox, so with my thumbs I like to think I’m probably quite useful,” he said in interviews released Monday after the end of his posting.”
A Taliban spokesperson called him a coward and suggesting he is mentally unstable. In response.
I personally cannot disagree with the the above statement. Stating that it was a joy killing people, because of his experience in video games is nothing short of cowardly and at the same time. A rare display of the mental sickness that elites and royalty possess.
Here is a great article from 1995 that discusses the mental instabilities that have been passed down through the “royal” generations.
History films are doubly entertaining when they shed new light on the present moment. And “The Madness of King George,” which opens tomorrow, ties into the messy state of today’s royal family.
The George in question is America’s last king, George III, who was dismissed by the Declaration of Independence as a “tyrant . . . unfit to be the ruler of a free people.” The film accurately portrays him as a madman.
Elizabeth II and her family are directly descended from George III, who suffered recurrent bouts of mental illness from middle age to the end of his life. Since part of the mad old king’s genetic inheritance lives on in the Windsor blood today, some of his mental estrangement may have come all the way down to Prince Charles.
The `Loony Prince’
Charles, who has long been known as “The Loony Prince,” once took pen in hand to deny this possibility. In an essay produced after he finished his studies at Cambridge University, Charles stressed his belief that his ancestor George suffered from a physical – not a mental – illness.
George’s shocking eccentricities, wrote the Prince, were caused not by madness but by “a mental state akin to the sort of delirium experienced by patients with very high fevers.”
Unfortunately for Charles’ theory, George was out of his mind for weeks and weeks after his temperature returned to normal.
In fact, George’s diagnosis remains in question. Dr. Richard Galbraith of Rockefeller University says that the cause of the king’s physical symptoms might have had nothing to do with his mental condition; “George might just have been batty at the same time.”
But you can’t doubt the sanity of a member of the current generation on the basis of one controversially mad ancestor. What we need here is a collection of crazy royals. And we have them.
This should come as no surprise since mental disorders are very common among inbred families, and the British royals are about as inbred as it gets.
