These 'Social Workers' come in different hybrid forms in contemporary society, although there is a view that they are a dying if not extinct species. The span of 'happy helper' runs from the essentially authoritarian personality, to those dreamers and rebels who seek a society based on voluntary free association and mutual aid.
