Obviously there was motivation however what good does it do to tell everyone.
This could just be about not giving him a platform. The less manifestos that get released the better.
Actually, this line of reasoning has merit. Consider the reaction to the manifesto of the Unabomber Ted Kaczynski.
After much internal debate, it was finally printed in full by the Washington Post and New York Times.
Upon release, some very prominent sociology professors and leading intellectuals fairly gushed over the document, some claiming that reading Kaczynski's views had changed their lives.
Those closest to Paddock all claimed that the man was highly intelligent so if he had written a manifesto it would likely reflect as much.
In theory, of course.
