Coming Next: Microhousing
When Obama et al. stop getting traction with Marxist–Leninist demagoguery regarding “income inequality,” it will be time to pivot to housing inequality.
As every progressive knows, housing is a human right. Who better to secure this right than the federal government, which has done such a spectacular job of defending our right to force others to pay for our medical insurance under ObamaCare?
ObamaHousing will allow our benevolent rulers to address the scourge of housing inequality. Under socialism, equality is achieved by separating the cream — that is, the oligarchs in charge — and then forcing upon everyone else the lowest common denominator.
Progressive Seattle gives us a hint what that might look like regarding housing:
Micro-apartments in Seattle have mostly felt like a novelty, appealing to a niche of carless urbanites who can squeeze everything into the square footage of about three Smart cars.
But Lilliputian studios are becoming a major housing trend, with the number of micro-units expected to more than triple in the next few years.
About 700 micros have opened in Seattle, mostly in the last two years. Another 2,400 units are in the pipeline, in various stages of construction and permitting. …
Micros generally range from 100 to 185 square feet. They have a private bathroom, but often not a kitchen (or full kitchen).
The tiny apartments fit nicely with Seattle imposing the world’s highest minimum wage increase. You can’t expect to live in a castle when your unborn grandchildren are paying your rent because there aren’t any entry-level jobs.
Envirofascist social engineers will be delighted at how many people can be crammed into a small space, leaving even more of the country to the ducks and the squirrels.
