Everyone (by which I mean the media) is going on and on and on about Prince Harry being in Afghanistan. Oh noes, they cry! Some meanie told on him and now instead of him being able to run around like a normal bloke shooting people he has to come home! We must talk about it incessantly because it's news, damn it! News! People care, and if they don't they damn well should!
Nothing about all the ordinary people who are working in these dangerous areas of the world. Nothing about the people who have died on either side of all of these conflicts. Nothing about how much money and effort has been put into satisfying one person's wants over the safety of a lot of other people. None of that. Just, oh woes, Harry has to come home and stop having fun being 'normal' and isn't it awful because it's a moral victory for 'enemies of the Queen'. What utter macho bollocks.
If Harry really wanted to be normal, then he'd put up with restrictions just like the rest of us do. Ordinary people are restricted by lack of funds, by family or work commitments, by illness, by lack of privilege (gender-related or class-related or race-related or otherwise), by disability, by lack of food, by lack of basic security, by tragic circumstance, by ridiculous laws, by petty rules, by bullies, by bosses, by all kinds of things. It's just the way life is in this world. So Harry can't be on a front-line without a massive cover-up and without huge risk to the people he'd be working with (or even not working with - others on the front line would be even bigger targets because from 300 yards they kind of might be Harry). Tough. Get over your privilege.
