Give money to charities such as Doctors without Borders, not this crap.
Invisible children only give 30% of the money they receive to charity, and seem to spend the other 70% on making videos such as that one.

Kony2012 is very interesting for me not just because of the despicable acts against African children, but because of the fact that social media is rising as a force no one would of dreamed of 10 years ago. One of my majors is social media, and that's why I designed and developed WLP (World Leader Proposal).

I realize that this forum is for young gamers who may not care about such social/political issues, but make no mistake, this will affect you over the next 10 years, and how your own kids interact with the world.

When I first joined this forum, I was only in my first year at uni (even though I'm an old BADWORD :o ) and I was new to PC gaming (used to be a console player). I was also new to forums. 4sg was the first forum I ever joined, and I remember my first post, I bleated on about to Mick "There is something special here, I just can't put my finger on it"

Now I know.

It was my first taste of social media, now I own a forum, am in my last year at uni, and I can finally win some duels (I'm still useless) But the point is, any form of social media, even a forum for gamers, is part of a powerful interconnected structure that just may change the course of human history.

Kony2012 is an example of this.

Now, I submit to you young freaks (I'm 38 by the way :shock: ) that if you want more info on Kony2012 from forum users like yourselves, which is not mainstream media, visit http://worldleaderproposal.com/and shock the SHIT out of me, and make me believe that 4sg members are not just gamers, but also people who are interested in how the real world is shaping up.

The interesting thing is that they target one guy, but its an army with a whole bunch of other guys ready to step up in his place. the serpents head will regrow... Something like this .... requires.... another American insurgence maybe... :roll: . The situation's shite either way...

I urge you not to buy an action kit (or donate any of your money).

While i'm sure all the crying in the video and music which sounds like it belongs in the 'Gladiator' soundtrack (where Maximus returns home to his family) has convinced you otherwise; this organisation is really as corrupt as the government in Uganda.

The money donated that doesn't disappear actually supports the Ugandan Military (accused of rape and abuse of many women and children) and the Sudan's People's Liberation Army (a militia reportedly accused of kidnapping thousands of children to work as child soldiers--and most likely still do).

Let's not forget that Kony2012's solution to this injustice is by sending American military to intervene, where they will most likely kill those very children who they have sought out to protect as you are indirectly supporting the shooting of child body guards that he most likely possesses.

Instead of spending your money to send American troops over to violently intervene, why not donate your money to a cause that will directly help the children of Uganda?

Giving hipsters weapons isn't the way to solve this problem.

Good to see some people posting here, and some good points on how things are not always what they seem. I'm sure Invisible children's hearts started out in the right place, but maybe greed got the better of them?

Anyway, I still think it might be the start of social media rising as a major influence of world issues.

or how corporate marketing manufactures the illusion of grassroots movements to lure hipsters and psuedo-intellectuals to the cause.

this and also..
maybe we should ask for something to be done closer to home, like get our troops out of that quagmire in stan, or even for something to be done about endless boom and bust cycles and marketing speculations. how about ending all lobbying of OUR governments? what about our stupid energy policy? any one of the examples i mentioned affects far more people than a handful of kony children..
