Libertarians would hail it as free market at work and would scorn you for even thinking about social housing projects.

They should build thousands of these in inner cities and put people that want to live on welfare there for free... put a fence with razor wire to keep them in. Bring them McDonalds twice a day. If they want to get out of there, require them to get a job and start being a part of functioning society. Filthy vermin!

 Quoting: The Comedian :D
This will be hard for many to accept, but the military is the closest thing to Communism that America has to offer. Everyone wears the same clothes, has the same haircut, eats the same food, lives in government housing.

Pay is sub-par. Promotions are primarily time based rather than merit based. However you'd best toe the party line. If you don't parrot the platform, you will be stuck in the lower worker caste. But even then it's okay because nearly all of your creature comforts are met by the government.

Nah. It's not communism. It was established, built, and run by the Brits, and the land release policies put in place by the Brits are still in effect (i.e. there's relatively little space, but the Brits set aside large green belts). So it's had a double-edged sword effect; and the population hasn't increased much in recent years.

It's run under a 'one country, two systems' approach. Not communist, but what you see there is simply a result of supply and demand; it's a great place to do business, low taxes, but high wages, so some people put up with this shit. For many of those people, if they just crossed the border into the mainland, they'd get a place 20-30 times the size (i.e. a relatively normal apartment) for the same price.

But the benefits outweigh the circumstances for some.

And just to add, these tiny spaces have long been there in HK. Before the handover. It might be getting worse more recently because of increasingly higher rents, but the pictures you see are nothing new.

the Agenda 21 push by the United Nations consists of herding us all into intensely cramped cities.

it has nothing to do with capitalism at all.


More with the unbridled wish of a leftist organization to see
all people controlled and human life subordinated to other life forms

which will now enjoy the bounteous land we vacated.
