Gans can't admit that ---- because he's a "liberal".
He's always looking for "VICTIMS" ---- he never sees people as, in large
part, responsible for their own fates. Self-Reliance is an alien
concept to him.
So, Gans sees King George VI as a "VICTIM" of his elder brother, Edward
It's a knee-jerk reaction for him ---- the way his brain [what's left of
it] is hard-wired.
That means he must ignore the 60 coffin-nails per day and the lung
cancer that killed King George VI.
This is the major reason why "liberals" ---- the ageing legions of the
Leftover Left ---- have become a laughing stock in the United States.
Now, a characteristic Gansian Gambit, in rebuttal, would be for the
little old schlockmeister of Washington Square to claim that the reason
George VI smoked so much is that he was nervous, unsuited to be King and
his brother put him in a role that was unsuited for him, which led to
his early death. You see how neat that is?
Voila! Gans has his "Victim" again.
Fun and Games...
