Here is my communitarian principle: the test of moral acceptability of a new technological development, or a new use of biological knowledge or power, is that it advances, or otherwise meet the needs of, the important institutions of society, such as the family, education, and social welfare. That would become the first and supreme test, not the desires and preferences of individuals. Behind this communitarian principle lie two assumptions. One of them is that the vitality and strength of a society are best judged primarily by the vitality and strength of its central social institutions, and only secondarily by the happiness and well-being of its individual members.
