Pride over ISO and the System Work in Europe and Elsewhere - Hurray!

As a believer in systems and thorough work, to which I've made a point against Psychiatry because of its negligence and corrupt nature (for now), I'd like to make a special mention of ISO, The International Organization for Standardization.

From their own web-site (listed below):
"Who we are

We are a network of national standards bodies. These national standards bodies make up the ISO membership and they represent ISO in their country."

and that
"Our story

The ISO story began in 1946 when delegates from 25 countries met at the Institute of Civil Engineers in London and decided to create a new international organization ‘to facilitate the international coordination and unification of industrial standards’. In February 1947 the new organisation, ISO, officially began operations.

Since then,we have published over 19 000 International Standards covering almost all aspects of technology and manufacturing.

Today we have members from 164 countries and 3 335 technical bodies to take care of standard development. More than 150 people work full time for ISO’s Central Secretariat in Geneva, Switzerland."

"Our name

Because 'International Organization for Standardization' would have different acronyms in different languages (IOS in English, OIN in French for Organisation internationale de normalisation), our founders decided to give it the short form ISO. ISO is derived from the Greek isos, meaning equal. Whatever the country, whatever the language, the short form of our name is always ISO."

Finally two pictues that do look good:
