The Power of Action

The beauty of "doing something" to fix a problem is you can claim that the situation would have been worse had you not "done something" and no one will be able to prove you wrong.

The patient has a high fever. The doctor must do something. The doctor withdraws a pint of blood from the patient. The patient dies (from loss of blood - as happened to George Washington and Lord Byron) and the doctor confidently declares that death would have happened sooner without his (the doctor's) ministrations.
