Your memory seems to be failing you on this point. There was a "Pledge To Mankind" signed on behalf of the IAS by all the top executives and it is on display at Saint Hill in East Grinstead. It was signed on the 7th October 1984. That is the official date of the start of the IAS. That's not my opinion or my memory. It's a fact. I have the first few issues of the IAS magazine, Impact, and the details are in there. It's also on google. It's also strange that you say you hadn't heard of a "Scientology policy directive" until I mentioned it. That is strange because I didn't mention it. I mentioned a Scientology Policy Letter, not directive. Having thought about it a bit further, I think now that you might be right. It was probably a policy directive not letter i.e. an SPD not an SPL as I said. But the point is you must have heard of a Scientology Policy Directive before my post otherwise how could you mention it in your post?
