I have seen a lot of people support the cause "Kony 2012" the movement which
includes helping the "Invisible children" to be seen and raise awareness universally
so that everyone will focus on getting Joseph Kony captured. It annoys the shit out
of me how people support something just because someone has told them to support it,
they support it with no background research or any question about - it's annoying and
ridiculous how gullible people can be. And If anything, you should not trust the
media or at least be an active audience to the media that you are consuming.
Joseph Kony is already believed to be dead or captured already and hasn't struck
Every action that you are supporting with the Kony 2012 cause was all presented in
a 30 minute documentary, how anyone can form a fair view of a cause by
watching something that is inaccurate and 30 minutes long is beyond me.
The questions you should be asking yourself before giving to Kony 2012 etc:
What is in it for them?
What would this actually help?
Why are they asking this?
Who is my money or support actually going to?
The sad thing about humanity is that people in the governmental spectrum of the world
most likely do things that will excel them and make them better and give them an
advantage. Nothing is for free and everything has a catch. I mean, it's pretty much
like a game, If you were faced with helping somebody who is homeless, weak and
suffering would you still want to help them if you were offered a big sum of money
that would increase your own living standards and increase the power that you had in
the world? The most common answer would be to increase your own living standards etc.
because it is survival of the fittest.
What Kony 2012 is really:
Kony 2012 is pro-war propaganda used to distract the world whilst the U.S government
invades Uganda while saying that they are "Searching for Kony, to capture him" when
in reality they will be extracting oil from Uganda to benefit themselves.
Out of all the countries, why did they choose Uganda?
Oil fields were discovered in Uganda in 2009 and since then the U.S has started to
"care" about the genocide taking place in Uganda.
There was mass killings in Darfur too, of around 400,000 no one cared then but
when oil is brought into the equation everyone starts to care because it's something
that they need to survive.
People need to stop being so naive.
