Standards should not be put first in any itinerary toward accomplishment. Practices are the standards of failure. Some nit pickers would have us believe that miniscule ideals such as Standards and Practices are the only way to get anything done. It's clear though, to anyone who has ever accomplished any great task, like faking the moon landing, that Standards and Practices have no place in The American Way. And that these words are merely signs on the road to communism. Some of these concepts can be clearly scene in the world's ideal treatment of prisoners. As in The Geneva Convention, which has no place in geo-political modern practice.
