Social housing in Brazil is funded by taxes. Brazil has a huge housing deficit, so our goverment built low-cost houses to replace favelas/unsafe houses

I don't know how there's any more social isolation in these examples than there is in detached houses that aren't social housing. I'm just more concerned with the fact that public funds are used to make detached houses... no other country in the world does this

One country off the top of my head: Australia and I would bet there are many more. Unless you personally are paying tax to the Brazilian Govt, why does detached public housing concern you?
