I don't understand why the Kensington lock slot was eliminated from the Retina MacBook Pro. Is it so we will keep buying them after they are stolen?

It's because it takes a rather significant amount of body strength to put it in, which requires a certain amount of thickness and takes up space that could be used for other components and cooling. They also provide only very minimal security, as anyone with a pair of easily concealable wire cutters can get past one in less than a second.
