Mockery will get you know where. If you choose you can find and embrace mediocrity. Go on, slouch your way to oblivion for all I care. I for one wish to set high standards, just like our successful forefathers. It was demanding high standards and maintaining those standards that paved our road to excellence. If Washington, Lincoln, or Jefferson had not set high standard, where would we be? If Ike or Patton or Truscott didn't have high standards, we would all be speaking German and there would be a critical shortage of Jews! You would mock Dr. Demming or or Warren Buffett for setting high standards? Get a gip boy! The rest of the world is running over us while you dwell over your perceived "high ground relative morality". You'd probably be the first to sue over a design flaw because the product was "not up to standards". It is I that should be trembling........ Wow. You've taken this so far out of context it's not even funny and you've missed the point---many of our forefathers would find you slovenly dressed with your strange neck adornment, your oddly short coat, and your hair grotesquely unpowdered like a peasant. And comparing your perceived declining standards of dress with the holocaust is in incredibly poor taste, which just goes to show how much you've overblown the significance of your "standards".
