In a sense him plugging his books in here and there throughout the answers may very well be, and probably are, for promotional purpose, and to gain in
profit. When you think about it, he still has to make a living. He travels the world, and researches daily. The profit from these books carry him on
his journey. He can't work a 9-5 job, and travel the world at the same time.
However, I also believe, that I too would grow tired of the same questions, especially after answering them in several books, and countless
interviews, and just begin to respond like so: "Hey look, if you want to know my answer, read this...". Along with him growing tired, you have to
take into consideration that some of those questions can't be answered in a quick 30 word summary.
He says that he isn't looking for anyone to believe him, or even look at his material, so for this to maintain its truth, the only other conclusion
is that he does indeed need the profit from his research to continue it. What better way to do that than to write a book (or many in his case...).
This doesn't make him wrong for doing so. Sadly, in this reality, nothing is free.
Whether you view his work as the ramblings of a mad man or the works of an enlightened genius, are for you to decide. Just because you disagree with
it doesn't make it WRONG. As some have said, they haven't read his work, or only gazed at it briefly before their preconditioned belief system had
kicked in, and lead them away from it. His work is very controversial compared to the "normal" views of society and life itself. But, I ask you
this, if you have yet to read the work, how can you criticize it?
If the government were to "make him disappear", it would look awful suspicious. If anything, it would further prove his work
. Them leaving him
alone merely makes people think that "hey he MUST be wrong, because he is still alive". It is more beneficial to them for him to be alive.
