I am not sure that this is indeed the case! From my experience, many of these "sin" users simply cut somewhere else in their budgets in order to keep purchasing their "sin" delights!
Here in South Africa a total of 210 rhinos have been killed in 2010 for their horns to satisfy the 'horny' (forgive the intended pun) desires of degenerates in the far east. These lunes will pay top $$$ for rhino horn because they believe it has some kind of medicinal value and the power to give them sexual prowess. Why don't these people not just chew their own hair?
Anyway, these majestic animals are being killed for nothing! And that is a shame. And, outrage against this trade is the right response! Hence, there is a call to Join the Rhino Wars.
However, why don't these people show outrage against the vicious, conscienceless killing of another sort? That of millions of human babies every year! Enough human babies are being aborted worldwide every year to have decimated the populations of some countries!

The South African government is busy looking at the
Secrecy Protection of Information Bill. I wrote about this in my post called "South Africa soon to experience its own Body Snatchers." In this post I wrote:
"The problem with any government, is that as soon as the government starts intervening in the area of the free flow of information (FFOI), it is usually (read: almost always) because the current government (political party in charge) does not like what is being said about them. When it comes to the ANC, that is exactly the case. The ANC does not have the social make-up or maturity to handle criticism well. [...]South Africa is currently at a cross-roads in more ways than one, and the issue of the freedom of the press and of the Free Flow of Information (FFoI) is but one of them. However, for the South African democracy this issue rates as one of the most important, if not the most important issue.
"A government that does not like, and cannot handle, criticism, soon turns into a totalitarianism."
