Something has clicked

Something has just clicked in my head and economics has suddenly become fascinating.

So much of it revolves around this central question: is it possible to maximize the interests of a group while still preserving the rights of the individual?

How to maximize the interests of a group:

1) Develop an objectively valid measure of inter-personal utility
2) ...
3) (Maximize group) profit.

Peferably the solution to step 1 should not involve unnecessarily putting people in prison because you find their personal sources of utility violate your sense of aesthetics.
