One method to deal with problems is to relocate them. I like to think of myself as a master at it, figuratively speaking.
For instance, in 1991 I quit smoking. I was successful at that for more than four straight years. I attribute all my success during that period to the clever technique of replacing my two-pack-a-day habit with a two-six-pack-a-day beer habit. It worked like magic until the idea hit me, hey, why can’t I have it all?
That’s relocating a problem figuratively. But governments are swell at relocating problems literally.
