    [quote user="egyptian420"]I'm sick of this whole Kony thing....it just shows the ignorance and how easily manipulated North Americans are.

    If people only took the time to do 5 mins of research they would realize that the company who made that video gives only 30% of the millions they make to Uganda, the rest goes to them.

    It's so pathetic to watch millions of teenagers who think they're actually doing something positive by sharing a viral video on their wall. You want to really help? Turn off Jersey Shore and go do some missionary work you uneducated, ignorant, easily persuaded idiot.

    haha i love how it makes everyone think they are an activist for watching a 30 minute video. Totally blind to the fact that this has nothing to do with Kony himself, but OIL. I know, go figure.

    2011, oil reserves found in Uganda, few months later, the most random video goes viral, and now we "want his head" and he "must be stopped". Joseph Kony has been among the most wanted international criminals for 7+ years. I'm supposed to believe that overnight, some magical switch flipped that brings this guy's name to the spotlight? oooooook then</p>[/quote]

    and while the kony activists are annoying, so are the counter arguments that u just made....

    not a personal shot at you, just saying.
    Fear the name, appreciate the game

    I guess the only thing that actually bothers me about the whole thing, is basically what egyptian is saying,....people are such ****ing sheep. and this whole thing is a sham, but good luck explaining that to people.

    I agree to a point, I actually first heard about the Kony thing on Reddit (well I saw the video on facebook but never clicked it until after reddit) and the first thing I saw posted about it was about how the Charity is a rip off and how the LRA was all but disbanded already and how the video was misleading......which of course made me want to watch the video.

    that said it's not ALL bad...Millions have watched this video now...literally millions...if even 1% of those millions actually put real effort into humanitarian efforts in the future then the video accomplished a good thing.

    the only thing that's "bad" about this whole Kony thing is the fact that this so called charity (Invisible Children/TRI) is pretty much stealing money from charitable people, that said getting people to know about this type of violence is the first step to stopping these type of tragedies.

    should the public be able to figure this stuff out without being spoon fed it by a viral video...yes...but that isn't happening so as long as they find out about it, to me that's a good thing cause otherwise they may never have known.
