This is something interesting.
Update: This from the WP wapo.st/zzt1vo
It’s a fact that there are appaling acts against children and adults in many parts of the world, all carried methodically and intentionally by cruel and inhuman monsters acting on their own beliefs. Their faith in their right to behave in this way, and their belief that they are above and beyond the individuals they persecute is the common factor.
It would be wise to look twice and any strong stance and claim of righteousness. I spent several hours reading the Invisible Children material and some of the criticism. Whilst the issues in Uganda and across Africa and in other parts of the world are obvious and awful the motivations and use of information by others is by no means transparent.
It’s interesting to see how these viral campaigns work and I think in the future we will see more and more. It’s important however to keep your eyes open and look behind the surface with all of these issues.
