John found a food source John will only share food with friends and family Other members of the community have helped John in his time of need.
Everyone is entitled to the food If he did not grow it, it is not his
Take a vote--Majority wins Steal the food from John and give him none Adopt policy where all basic necessities are shared by everyone Let John keep the food and do what he wants with it

There seems to be two viable solutions to the food issue. 1) The community takes a vote to decide whether or not John must share OR 2) Adopt a policy in which all basic necessities are shared by all members of the Island Community.
Option 2, seems to be the most viable solution to the dispute over resources.
With option 1,If a vote is taken and the majority wins, there are still likely to be people without their basic needs met. However with option 2, there is comprimise from both John and his community to ensure that everyone has their needs met.
1 MONTH LATER...
It worked! At first people were upset because they all had to share, but just 1 month later the Island is living in harmony again!
When there is a dispute amongst people, it is best to find a compromise where everyone meets in the middle if at all possible. There is my plane so until next time, be kind and lend a helping hand!
