Marty Rathbun’s true conflict is between his words and actions. I am not saying that Rathbun suffers from a conflict beyond his control, but one of his own device, that very few are willing to call him out on.
It’s a cynical and self-serving conflict of an evil little man trying to have things both ways. He promotes himself as one who wants to “save” Scientology while teaming up with its most dedicated, avowed enemies. But it gets him attention and donations and keeps him from having to get a job.
It’s a conflict that can only be ignored by those whose hearts and hands are not clean, or who are fellow suppressives who are only too happy to look the other way.
