IMHO he was rejecting the TS at that point in time.  It was getting pretty wild with
CWL running around in a purple dress, initiations being handed out willy-nilly,
and everyone expecting K to give them enlightenment.  No wonder he ran for
hills.  If he did reject "all" organizations, it was on the basis of what he'd
already experienced.
