Yes !by trying to eliminate something, we generally encourage it.
I take this argument further, you make laws there will be somebody out there who will see the loophole and use it to his advantage.
Further, if we rationalize all that we abhor and give a new definition to what is crime there are several possibilities.
Stealing per se is not a crime if done innovatively, stealing somebody's idea is not bad because u were smarter than the man who dropped his guard, so you stole his idea. After all go back in time, ADam too committed a crime but how productive it became later on is evident .
Coming back to the present times there is also an increase in white collar crime as well and it will continue to rise.
Then we have the entire defence establishment and the industry that is into production of weapons. It will go kaput if we do not have strife, much of the energy is being utilised in preparedness for the possible outbreak.
The war in Iraq tested America's preparedness that had slowed down after the collapse of the Soviet Union.
