Well for a few brief hours today I felt a sense of renewed hope & faith in people, their compassion, their sense of humanity & their ability to pull
together as a collective to right a wrong.
The Kony2012 video did just as OP suggests- tugged at my heartstrings, made me feel empowered that I too,could help make a difference with my
Am I a 'sheeple'? Obviously, according to many on this thread.
I thank OP & other posters for making me aware of possible ulterior motives of not only the government, but also the charity IC themselves. And the
truth is you could well be absolutely right in your suspicions.
But even after learning more about these possibilities (& even agreeing with some), I am still in support of IC.
The fact that they look like really putting a stop to this man,(& hopefully his associates), is enough reason for me.
A drop in the ocean amongst the other equally important injustices that could use the same attention at this time, but its a start. The collective
power of people DOES matter.
If the US try what you've been suggesting, then I'm equally hopeful that this will also be brought to the attention of the masses the same way, & they
will fight it the same way as the IC campaign- (we all know how pissed people get when they feel duped.)
Whilst I know there will always be bad eggs in with the good, in ANY organization/charity, I can't let those bad ones stop me from trying. And I truly
hope that others won't either.
I've got to believe that I share this planet with many, many good people & that together we can make positive change.
If I stop believing that then WTF is the point of anything?
