And my oft repeated refrain:  Who decides what is in the good of the community?

Who decides what is “only” based on self-interest?

Unfortunately unless you have a very clear vision-mission-aim statement and 
have connected the proposal to that, it will be the majority that determines 
the answer.

This argument goes on the examine the purpose of community — Is it other than 
the self-interest of each person in the community as a member of the community?
