The young people who participated in the March for Democracy
, also known as the Bicentennial Generation, got together —with intelligence and vehemence— to make the change that Peruvian citizens were crying out for, providing society with an unmissable opportunity to build a better country, social psychologist Jorge Yamamoto has reported.
According to Yamamoto, a few things bring Peruvians together in such a way. For example, they do so when fighting against a common enemy or when the national soccer team plays
"It (the recent situation) met all the conditions to awaken the most closed cohesion and solidarity in the human brain," he explained.
From now on, he said, there are two options: "to keep undermining others' positions, working in closed groups, and discriminating against the rest; or to take advantage of this situation to make Peruvians more united and less disloyal."
The social scientist believes that this great political change —Merino's resignation
— is a sign that we have broken Peruvians' habit of criticizing while doing nothing, so as to enter a consistent criticism stage, which can achieve further results in the medium and long terms.
