I have a bit of a problem with rebels: if I leave them alone, they attack. If I start knocking them off with the Banish or Execute actions, then civil unrest rises, there's an uprising, and everyone attacks.
I suppose I could change the constitution to Democracy, so there's no uprisings, but having a high civil unrest can't possibly be good even if there isn't a large-scale rebellion. My current solution is just to have a large military, so that the rebel attacks are trivial to defeat.
Is there a method of reducing the membership of the Rebels without turning my island into an armed camp? (The Capitalist in me is vexed, because bullets cost money.) In Tropico 4, I would increase happiness however I could and then issue the Amnesty edict to get the Rebels to come home and pay their taxes like regular citizens; is there a way in Tropico 5 to get a similar result?
