Nobody needs to go to war. All we need to do is realign a few borders.
Wars do that

I am not sure often it is done without a war

This war is easy to win. Suppose you are a maker. A person that produces something or provides a service. Unless you are an idiot, you are probably already on each other's side, because you are tired of takers taking. Suppose you made enough to store a few nuts in a hollow tree. Maybe a garden and some walking protein. Or maybe become a taker for just a little while. The people who are the problem will not last very long. They start the war. It's hard to get free stuff when you run out of stuff, and people to move it. Only after things devolvce into lawlessness and chaos do we take up arms. At that point we are the good guys, just like the Yankees who raped and pillaged and subjugated half the country for economic game, because they freed the slaves. Step out of that truck, quit working at that hospital, stop stocking those shelves. Won't take long. Toilet paper should have been a signal of how fragile things are.

Seems like I read this story in a book

Or a state or group of states could just decide to split off from the United States and form their own country/countries. Under the current constitution splitting is not possible but that is what amendments are for and it does allow for splitting if it is approved by all branches of the government. Much healthier way than war to dissolve a country. The US already proved that with their Civil War. The south was forced to remain and the resentment is still active.
Did you hear about the Newfie that got excited when he heard that Quebec wanted to secede and form it's own country?

He figured that the drive to Toronto would be shorter.
