Will new housing be built after this?

by F. Bailey Norwood

Consider this scene showing how housing that was once private property now becomes socialized and given to people "according to their need." Compare this to the scene from Michael Moore's documentary Capitalism: A Love Story where a landlord is evicting a tenant who didn't pay their rent. On the one hand, people who may have more needs get what they need, but on the other hand, who will build new housing units if it could just be socialized and taken from them?
