    @Totalbiscuit The amount of links to this KONY 2012 thing without a single explanation of what it is has been rather unbelievable Simon Lane Simon Lane ? @SimonHoneydew The vid people are linking to is 30 mins long. How many people will watch a video that long that doesn't have cats or dubstep Edit: IMO it's an incredible idea. Though surely the UN should chip in some effort?

Joseph Kony is the head of LRA, **Lord's** Resistance Army. > "The Lord's Resistance Army is a militant group with a syncretic **Christian** extreme religious ideology." Joseph Kony has declared himself a prophet. He's doing Gods works. Whether he actually believes that or it's really just about power, I don't know.

    Kony doesn't operate anymore, It's like bin laden, his ben hiding for ages, want to start invading a country to find him when hes probably elsewhere. this charity funds the Ugandan militiary they commit equal crimes. it's a non profit charity but only 32% of its funds go to uganda it's a shambles and doesn't change anything even if there was a invasion, sooner or later everyone wouldnt want it ending.

    As most other people here, I'm mostly sceptic about the video, largely due to the insane publicity it has received. Sure, what the video outlines is horrible, and certainly shouldn't happen. The fact is, though, that such actions are happening, and more importantly, have been happening for ages, both with Kony as the leader and elsewhere. Showing one single person as the face of evil may very well work for making the hatred one feels against those crimes into something tangible. However, it doesn't serve well for properly informing the masses of the problem in a way that doesn't skew their opinions (though this doesn't seem to be the main objective of the above video). Furthermore, such websites as VisibleChildren seem to have noticed how exaggerated most statistics in the video are, as well as how poorly the "non-profit" organization uses their funds. In my opinion, this is not acceptable - only using 32% of the funds you receive on directly helping those kids (or, at least trying, they say) isn't exactly ideal, and when those 32% are given to the militia already known for rape and murdering as well as using child soldiers, the goodwill of this organization suddenly fades quite a bit. That's not to say that everything VisibleChildren has found is true - as he (the writer) mentioned himself, he is in no way a professional, and only a student as of yet. I do not know who to believe, but I find it harder to believe the promises made by InvisibleChildren than those from VisibleChildren.

    I'm still skeptical about Invisible Children. I agree completely with the video, and I think all of the steps suggested could be extremely effective... and then they got to the merchandising. Hoo boy... I know they're trying to raise money and awareness and shit, but a) there are some fishy numbers going about concerning where their money really goes, and b) this sadly gives people the excuse to buy their stuff and go "hey, I'm a social activist"! If you really feel like doing something about this, do all their contact culture and policy makers stuff. The money is a supplement.
    Well, maybe the bread. Maybe.

    Damned if you take Kony out, damned if you don't. You take out what the world sees as a great evil, another one just takes its place. Perhaps an even worse one. We also see here the problem with religion. Gives people the notion that they are superior to others. Have rights over the non-faithful. And what happens when you label a certain demographic as non-human on account of their lack of faith? Well, kill them, beat them, it's just an animal in the eyes of religion, no? Either way, come a month's time, it'll just be another few lines on the daily paper, page twenty three, another massacre perhaps, and we'll carry on with our daily lives none the wiser. For many of us, we joke about the end of the world in 2012. For many others, it will be the end of the world for them. Charity is but a lie, a cover for actions undertaken for personal gain. We don't do good things for others to make them feel good. We do it to make ourselves feel good.

    If I had the kind of money I'd need to make flashy, trendy, borderline demagogic movies, I'd make a film encouraging the funding of paramilitary gangs to kill people I find deplorable, too. For instance, the North Korean Kim family. A passionate clip of hungry Pyongyang kids would be a perfect casus belli for KCIA-inspired commando types to waltz across the border and reunite Jong Un and Kyong Hui (etc.) with their beloved Jong Il.

    I can't believe you guys have actually fallen for this scam of an organization. Right now they are hardly a charity. They pocket something like 69% of the cash they receive, and only spend ~31% to actually help people. And by help people I mean arm Ugandan milita men who are known to rape and pillage. Maybe these people have good intentions, but there are PLENTY of other charities doing REAL good, rather than supplying Ugandan militiamen with weapons and ammo. Support them, Charity Water is a good one for example. Invisible Children, the faces of peace. For a small donation of a mere $1000, you can have your name laser engraved on the bullet that is put into Kony's head.

    This is a joke. Kony is just the tip of the iceberg, hell, most of the information in that video is from 2004, Uganda is pissed about this too. The fact that anyone would donate without looking into this shady "non-profit" company is mind blowing.

Have you ever actually been mugged? Or are you just being smug Now, I'm fortunate enough to never have been mugged, and I'm not going to start wishing it on anybody (well, law breakers and politicians might prove the exception). Here, where I live, charity representatives pretty much pull you up, then thrust their clipboard with material designed to guilt trip you into giving them your bank account details so they can make a weekly/monthly donation to their cause, the half of which probably doesn't even make it to the country in need, the remaining half falling into the pockets of reigning tyrants. At the end of the day, we're simply paying out money to give ourselves a sense of having done right. Just another transaction, in exchange for a service rendered, like going to the local concert.

    Honestly, Invisible Children is more of an awareness campaign than actual front line help and it always has been. Saying only 31% actually goes to helping Uganda is irrelevant. I feel as though the whole Kony 2012 idea in itself isn't too great of one and Invisible Children isn't the first charity I'd donate to by a long shot, but the fact that they were able to make a charity go viral really says something. I believe this has finally taken charity that step further it needs, even though this particular case is incredibly biased and preys on idiots. It's about time somebody's realized the internet is the best place for publicity, currently. Invisible Children has been visiting schools for ages (it's been to mine several times), and producing movies. They've never received the recognition that they are now, and it's all because they spread it around the internet. Of course, they used celebrities to do this (which is ingenious), but it's all the same. Seriously though, Kony 2012 itself is such a useless campaign. The video doesn't even present a course of action to apprehend him, yet people are throwing money at the cause. Their ideas stop at getting public awareness, which they've already done, and from what I've heard, the government was already doing all they could reasonably do. It sounds like Invisible Children wants us to declare war on LRA to find Kony... Remind you of any unsuccessful missions the US have taken recently? Mhmmmm
