This guy is assuming his rightful place alongside other notables in the Wacky Hall of Shame. Right up there with David Wilson and Mike Smith.
He is taking a quote from the “Pledge to Mankind” that was signed at the “founding” of the IAS and attributing it to Hubbard.
What an idiot.
That fancy sounding document was written by Lyman Spurlock. Apparently Colin Davie suffers the same delusion so many others do. L. Ron Hubbard had no idea the IAS ever existed. It was created without his knowledge and as far as I know, to his dying day he was unaware of it. Remember, the IAS was not a fundraising vehicle in the early days. It was created based on a bright idea from a Danish lawyer, Jakob Arrevaad, following a principle of “organization” recognized in Europe. It’s purpose was to make a repository of funds OUTSIDE any control of the IRS. Initially the funds from SERVICES in Europe were channeled to it so as not to bring them into the US. It was not a fundraising entity it was a funds storage and protection entity. And the whole PR “signing of the pledge” was just that. PR to give this legitimacy – as if it really was money that was NOT under control of the church but instead belonged to “the members.” That lie is perpetrated to this day. It is the fundamental lie upon which all other lies about the IAS are premised.
Colin then proceeds with the usual litany of horrors that the IAS is supposedly “handling.” What a sick joke this is. Not a single shred of evidence exists that anything is being done about any of these problems — especially not the first two — in fact, scientology ADDS to the problem of human trafficking and slavery with people in the Sea Org, particularly those brought to the US on R1 visas. No doubt all these things are problems, though I doubt that employee theft accounts for 33% of business bankruptcies??) and it would be wonderful if someone did something effective about them.
That sure as hell isn’t the IAS.
And then comes the usual “If it isnt uncomfortable, it isn’t scientology” pitch to “step up to the plate” and fork over now.
With a “commendation” to be handed out provided you give enough.

Subject: LRH Quote for you from Colin – Pledge to Mankind and IAS 2015
“Time and again, throughout the troubled history of civilization on this planet, new ideas, new religions and constructive thought have met with violent opposition. Such attacks come from those who would preserve the status quo and particularly from those who seek to preserve and enhance their position through the domination, subjugation and even destruction of others. For this reason new religions have been born in blood at the cost of great sacrifice and suffering by adherents. It is only through a unity of purpose and unswerving commitment by a dedicated group that new ideas and new religions survive and expand.
Scientology has been in existence now for some thirty-four years. During that time it has suffered all manner of attacks from the forces of oppression in various countries. Yet Scientology has survived and expanded because of the dedication of its members and because it is a force for goodness and freedom which is easily recognized by men of goodwill; despite the vicious lies which are spawned by those who would enslave mankind and which are carried out by the media.” LRH The Pledge to Mankind circa 1984
