Why communism sucks

No more nude Nepalese dancers:
Hundreds of disco workers protested in Kathmandu on Monday against a government crackdown on "nude dancing" in its bid to improve the deteriorating law and order.
Police have raided scores of discos, nightclubs and dance bars in the past two weeks and detained 1,500 people. . . .
A Maoist-led government which took power in August has already ordered the bars should be closed an hour before midnight, to halt worsening public security in the capital, home to more than two million people.
Bar and disco operators are protesting the move would jeopardize their business and render 80,000 people jobless.
As a freelance journalist, I'm available for assignment if anyone wants to send me to do some in-depth investigative reporting about the Nepalese strip club crisis. Just send me a plane ticket and alert the Pulitzer committee.
