Another factor that was of concern to Ray was making sure his words were not changed either by individuals or by groups with a separate agenda one perhaps that would try to discredit him.
We are closing in on the republishing aspect of his work so a little more patience would be appropriate.
What is different at this point in time is the internet.....one only has to look up the sins of the WT Society, jwfacts.com and a variety of sites to get TTATT. This history of the Watchtower and the JWs provides more then enough information to help guide an individual out .
There were three major schisms in the early days.
That the WTBTS was founded on Adventist doctrines.
That the WTBTS was not a religion it was corporate publishing house latter turned into a real estate holding company.
That the JWs were established as a religion in 1931.
Further reading will show that they have been anti health procedures from the beginning and have killed more people Every Year since it's earliest years up to the current era then Jonestown did in it's one time mass suicide and murder.
We really don't need Ray's writings to effect change. It will become what he intended a reference about being on the GB, A revelation of how earthy and sad it was and remains. I for one do appreciate what he accomplished, His inside point of view has great value.
His words will endure and be of value but the 'chain of evidence' needs to be maintained least we lose his clear voice. His work needs the copyright protection. Carrying his work off without the legal protections devalues what he wrote and copyright protection he wanted.
It was never about money for Ray it was about his love of Christian principles and his life spent in his religion and how it lost it's way. But this was his work not yours or mine and by god he deserves your respect.
For those who are impatient it took forty years after Jesus's death before we started to get Paul's letters and then other writings.
