Reader comment on J. Krishnamurti's passage ...

Why Do Social Work?

 We don't actually have to perfect ourselves in order to become good social workers.  Self-knowledge can develop side by side with right action.  Krishnamurti's perspective is curiously polarized and black or white.  It's quite possible to have good enough self knowledge to educate ourselves and then to engage in social work, and the skillful practice we can achieve can help our clients or enhance the communities within which we work.
