But the "we" is the majority. Who decides what is the "good of the community"? 
Even if the community has a clearly defined aim statement, how to achieve that 
aim will not always be so clear.

The community doesn't exist except as individuals. There is no central 
consciousness or conscience.

"Wants" and "needs" are not so easy to define. What I view as a need, others 
view as a want.
