What are the symptoms of these resistances?

A symptom is something that has dragged on for months; Discontent of the people. Many analyzed that it was illogical that despite so many scandals, the people did not rise up, and one of the hypotheses was that the stimulus was missing; A group that implements that status so that people come to the streets.

What would be the first steps in that strategy?

Weapons companies trained in these types of technical strategies intervene.

What other authorities or institutions should be involved with this strategy?

In an ideal world: civil society and business could participate, but civil society criticizes a lot of networks, but nothing more. Unless they actively participate, distance remains. As in Chile, South Korea, and Japan, the Peruvian business community, with a few very honorable exceptions, is only interested in its own interests and lacks the capacity for union action when it comes to seeking common cause.

Where are we going?

In a society that is in chaos, drug trafficking is going to advance and insert itself into the political sphere, and we are going to have a society that appears to be democratic, but in practice with a kind of coalition of criminal organizations. Take power. However, we should not lose hope; What we are left with is a group of honest and capable people, apart from the traditional political parties, who sacrifice themselves to achieve peace.
