It has no existence without those individuals. "Benefit of the community as a whole" in practice to often comes down to majority rule. "Everyone" wants this except YOU. The invoking of the good of the community can easily become used as a social control by "The Majority." Or the elite that I described last week in the Tyranny of Structurelessness. Unless there is a policy in place that governs the decision, one individual's druthers are just as important as X number of other individual's druthers.
