Nothing in this world is "standardized," on the grounds of "it is right." If you want to prove that anything must be so, then you have to do it logically, not based on preexisting standards. I believe in potent empathy, compassion and respect, but not at all because they are the right thing to do. I don't care one bit whether they are "the right thing to do" because that is completely subjective. I do them because I believe that, logically, they are better than the alternatives.
