It is increasingly obvious that Marty Rathbun is not quite right in the head. Rathbun’s recent string of rants are entirely erratic and chaotic, leading one to wonder how being landlocked has affected his attitude and his mind.
Rathbun is playing to his audience of ex-scientologists, feeling out what they are looking for in one post and then putting his answer in the next. His personal philosophy jumps around, from side to side depending on whatever viewpoint is more benficial for him on that day.
At any rate, grandiosity has long been one of Rathbun’s character traits – or character defects – and Rathbun’s latest postings are proof positive of that.
A few Simple things to consider about Mark marty Rathbun
He has a long history of violence first of all. Second, he has committed perjury (multiple times).
Marty Rathbun got arrested during his honeymoon, for being too drunk.
Rathbun is paranoid and sees spies amongst his followers. Yet, he always brags about how he has spies inside Scientology churches.
Rathbun lies, tells stories that never happened and spins stories so that he is never to blame for anything.
Rathbun’s friends must agree with his views in order to remain in his inner circle.
The list goes on, but someone should start considering that Rathbun might be mentally disturbed due to the amount of electroshock he received while in his mother’s womb.
Patricia Lois Rathbun was institutionalized and received numerous electric shock treatments (ECT) while she was pregnant with Marty Rathbun. According to police records, Slade Rathbun told the police that his wife was a very disturbed person.
Since Marty is a disturbed person, one has to wonder if his mother’s condition combined with the ECTs is the reason Marty is mentally unstable?
Rathbun’s real intention is to distract others from standard Scientology, for fear that others are getting better while he is staying the same/ getting worse.
The only thing standard about Rathbun is that he standardly uses reversals of fact in his claims about himself and against the Church.
Nonetheless, he’s worked incessantly for several years on the purpose of organizing a splinter group all with the express intention of distracting people from standard Scientology. All to no avail
His megalomania knows no bounds. He compares himself toanyone he can think of to elevate the image of himself away from the shabby reality of an obsessed little man typing away on his computer when he’s not fishing on a remote backwater canal listening to his favorite tunes about smoking weed and drinking wine.
But he’s got dozens of devoted suppressive followers, whoshare many of his motivators and justifiersit has been tried time and again, going back a long time. It is a standard run-of-the-mill, garden-variety SP tactic, and there’s nothing new about it.
“Every time you write something, Marty, it gives us a better idea of what you’ve done, are doing, or are trying to do. Anyone with any understanding of the criminal mind can see that, too.
For example, you said about me: “… they pirated my name in a vampirish attempt to garner an audience…”
You mean the way you pirated “Scientology” and “standard tech” to garner an audience for yourself, Marty? In your case, I’ll agree it does sound “vampirish” as your only life comes from sucking the blood of the Church you’ve worked so hard to destroy for 3 decades, and leeching off it’s name. You know that without it, you would just be the zero you really are, and would have to find some other helping organization to try to “fight.” No one would listen to a word you say if you weren’t vampiring Scientology.”
The ‘we agree in most things with Ron but——-‘ sees the coattails of the public, not their faces. Only recently a large office nearly crashed on this one alone. I repeat that this is no self-interested observation. It is just fact. ‘This office doesn’t fully agree with Ron’ is a sure trademark of failure. I can name nearly a hundred (independent, nearly all of them) failed centers who for all their work and often creditable actions, new furniture and exteriors, failed and failed hard on just that point.”

HCOPL 27 Dec 63 THE MAGIC OF GOOD MANAGEMENT
You hear this kind of remark from Marty Rathbun and his nutty pals all the time: “we agree in most things with Ron but ——- “ The caveat (they hope) obscures a cesspool of ethical and technical crimes, committed every time they are able to snag some poor pre-clear and shove him in front of an, at best uncertified, quite often jury-rigged, even flat-out broken, excuse for an e-meter.
With squirrels like Rathbun, faint praise for LRH (if any) is a staple, and it is always delivered while they are quite blatantly criticizing LRH and Scientology with their actions.
Marty’s type is, sadly, not unusual or hard to find – I spot them occasionally in my own workplace. Whether an obvious bully like Rathbun, or dripping with apparent sweetness, they all DO as LRH describes.
They produce nothing, while undermining and upsetting their co-workers, and running down the reputation of the guy who signs their check.
It can be a challenge to see the obvious. We don’t want to believe it of people we once trusted or had some affinity for due to past association. But Rathbun is nothing if not painfully obvious in his methods and motives.
Like most suppressives, all of Marty Rathbun’s outrageous transgressions against others don’t matter one bit. Every slightest opposition of him – real or imagined – is tragically bad and utterly unforgivable. Rathbun’s gone so far down the tubes that someone even observing him sends him into fits of whining over his victimhood.
Marty Rathbun has become the classic victimizer claiming to be a victim. This he hopes will keep him safe from others possibly doing to him what he’s done to them, and of course make him some money in the process.
