I think the old fashioned mentality that many Peruvians, mainly the indigenous have, is counter productive to human advancement regardless of their "culture". I would want to take the Peruvians out of their caveman ways and introduce them to modern life. Teach them there is no need to manually water plants 3 times a day when machines can do that and their abilities have much better uses elsewhere in society.
Many Peruvians and South Americans in general have a very short sighted mentality, that rip and run get what you can f everyone else. I would change that.
