Despite the occasional benign-sounding endorsement of other practices, telepathy with fish, or a once-yearly pattycake picnic, Marty Rathbun’s daily words and actions show vicious, destructive intent to even the most casual observer.
Rathbun’s obvious stock-in-trade is invalidation and nullification, and, with the help of other moribund souls like Mike Rinder, he works to spread as much invalidation as he possibly can at all times. He may try to make his criticisms noble-sounding or legitimate, but they each boil down to an effort to nullify and invalidate. It is what Rathbun does, and is the signature of his personality.
Even the untrained recognize such a personality as negative and destructive. No matter the ruses Rathbun uses to persuade others he’s doing “good work,” anyone can see that all his efforts are directed toward bringing things down.
“Above 2.0 the individual plays to win. Below 2.0 the individual uniformly plays to lose. And not only does the individual below 2.0 play to lose for himself, he plays to lose for everyone else around him and for the future.
It is part of the mechanism of death that individuals below 2.0 talk as though they play to win, talk of the desperate need of saving and winning, talk of emergencies by which one is expected to win. This is all part of the trap. Given every opportunity and every facility and every circumstance by which they can win, people below 2.0 will inject into every plan the germ of death and, acting ever so reasonably, will permit that germ to grow until death is attained for the individual, his associates, for the future or for his organization.”
