What El Salvador’s Mega-Prison (ACTUALLY) Means for Its Future…

Thought Leader: Peter Zeihan

Written by: Peter Zeihan

Today we’re talking about El Salvador’s new ‘mega-prison’ that will be filled with gang leaders, drug traffickers and the worst of the worst. In theory, this sounds great…lock up the bad guys and throw away the key…but the reality is that they may have just opened a can of worms.

Here’s the problem. When you place a bunch of bad people in a high-stress environment, hierarchies and bonds will begin to form. And in a country of only a few million people, these shot-callers have the influence to form political parties and sway major decisions.

So what does all this mean? To this day, El Salvador has NOT been a Narco state….it will be now.
