Unworthy by any other name

When one abandons the notion of perfecting human nature, and by that is usually meant perfecting it in others, focus ought rightly to return to one's own nature, perhaps the only healthy self-absorbsion, and one's own imperfectability. A counter to the self absorbtion at riot in the modern consciousness. Schemes for changing the world, by changing all those pesky "others" ought to recede like the tide, and 'calls to action', and 'campaigns' for this or that "Universal at long, last final answer!" to the beam in the eye, replaced by prayers for humility and wisdom.
