At 80 years of age, and after 30 years of WTBS service, do you honestly think this man has any of the following:
Life Insurance? 401K? ROTH-IRA? STOCK? MUTUAL FUNDS? PENSION?
Social Security Income? Disability Income?
It is amazing that after leaving the WTBS, he decided to publish any books PERIOD. Rather than immediately establish a source of income, he continued writing, doing what he does best. Its helped thousands of people.
Now, if he needs to take advantage of his LEGAL copyrights at this stage of his life, for ANY reason, it is his RIGHT to do so and without question.
If you enjoyed publishing and displaying Ray Franz's literature, excerpts from his writings, audio speeches and anything else, be GRATEFUL and THANKFUL for the amount of time you received, FREE of charge.
All of the material was his own personal work, and not owned by anyone else, PERIOD. Give the man a break. People work in the US Government for years, witnessing scandals, coverups, frauds, abuses and corruption and NEVER write a book or reveal anything.
They quietly retire and collect their pensions and enjoy their benefits in peace. Quit whining and write your own books!
If you just count the number of posts some of you have in this forum, and the variety of experiences you have told, you would already have several chapters finished, and have your own "work" in progress.
Let the guy have his work and enjoy what's left in peace! Grow Up!
