 What an interesting challenge ! Creating an "algorithm" for what I'd call "distributive social justice" requires you precisely define the logic of "who gets what." Of course, that logic can include introducing randomness. Among the scenarios I'd want the algorithm to deal with: 0) "need" ... if you have a way to evaluate how much the person really needs the items, how "essential" the item is. Age ? Living alone vs, with others ? Income ? Health and access to health-care ? 1) "utility" ... if you have a way to evaluate how much the person can benefit from the items. 2) "greediness vs, modesty" ... does someone who wants everything with maximum intensity deserve more than those with fewer choices ? 3) "collateral benefits:" ... to what extent the items benefit the family, or community, of the receiver. 4) "reciprocity:" ... if you have a way to evaluate how much the person will contribute to your project. And ... more, and more. Given "human nature," whatever principles you define will probably anger some people ... unless you make the allocation "purely" random. «The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled» Plutarchmodified 29-Aug-21 0:20am.
