Okay, so, I hate to be that guy, and I'm sure some of you have already seen this hit the internet like wildfire, but for those who haven't, here's a video. It's around 30 minutes long, but it's definitely worth watching. For those that just can't be bothered (but it's really good. Watch it): Joseph Kony is the leader of the Lord's Resistance Army. He's currently among the world's worst war criminals. He's been officially charged with 12 crimes against humanity and 21 war crimes by the International Criminal Court. Among his crimes is the abduction of children and subsequently forcing them to fight in his army. The basic idea behind this "new" movement is to get Kony out of power by the end of 2012 by spreading the interest and getting governments to get involved. Personally, I'm not too sure how successful I think this'll be. I'd hate to see it fade in to obscurity, and, hopefully, it won't, because stopping crimes against humanity isn't inherently conservative or liberal. I haven't seen any specific instances of it yet, but I could easily see some people seeing this as nothing more than a fad, and refusing to get involved because of that, or else refusing to support it. I really hope, though, that this evolves past hitting the share button on Youtube and letting others take care of it. In my little part of the country, at least, a pretty decent number of my friends have already pledged to take action, and a couple of us are working on organizing a Cover the Night event for our city. While it might seem a little...I don't know, hypocritical might be the right word? It might seem a little hypocritical to go from not knowing who the guy is a week ago to wanting him arrested so quickly, but I don't see that as an issue. We live in a world where information is constantly thrown at our faces, and a lot of the important stuff gets lost in the mix. Yes, there are other major issues going on. There are massacres and genocide all over the planet. But if we have to tackle global issues one at a time, so be it. I'm not saying this is a perfect cause, but it's definitely a step in the right direction of people -- not politicians or governments, but PEOPLE -- holding the world accountable for itself, and that's what we've needed for a long, long time. Anyway, everyone -- thoughts?
