This is the pig that was tried, convicted and executed for eating the face off a child in its crib.
Not an unusual fate for animal criminals in times past.
Nicholas Humphrey recounts the reasons in his history of animal trials, Bugs and Beasts Before the Law:
The legislators, scientists, inspectors and bureaucrats of today share the same fear. ISO management accreditation is animal trials for the modern man. The crimes it finds are non-compliances and there is no appeal to a higher court.
Assessors live in denial of the multiple contradictions of the central dogma of inspectionism – all things can be controlled by the act of hoarding records for inspection. They live in fear that their roles are worse than useless because they are founded on a lie that cannot keep their deeper fears at bay. Their response is to do more of the same. They are trapped in their ever-decreasing circles and want to take as many with them as they can – Medical Royal Colleges, businesses, politicians, scientists… It’s a convenient fiction for all of them that the magical rituals of accreditation can keep the chaos at bay.
Future generations will look back at accreditationism and laugh.
