He cannot be criticized for what others who came before, bequeathed to him, surely ?it's more honest than some of the others who enjoy the benefits without putting the work in
I don't really understand the financially independent comment though - didn't his mother leave him many millions?
That can happen to anyone , by accident of birth.
He has decided to opt out of a very privilidged position ( albeit financially ✓ ) .
And he has served his country, life on the line served, so much more than 98% of his age group.
Good luck to him and his family.
