Social scientists believe that the shooters engage in violence to draw attention to their cause.
Hiding it reduces the motivation for someone else to go sacrifice themselves for that cause.
It certainly seems like the theory that one attack triggers a bunch of copycats is happening.
@doctorflappy The capitalist media just shows us the tragedy on a loop to keep us frightened and watching so they can show more ads and make more money.
@alienghic the capitalist media reframes these mass shootings from Right Wing political acts to video games, mental illness, and need for gun control.
So leaving the manifesto also allows those out raged by the act to learn the real motivation to commit them, right wing ideology, not "playing grand theft auto."
Right wing militants will continue to have their own outlets to radicalized regardless.
