kony 2012

where you live shouldn't determine whether you live

the best you can offer a child is letting them be independent.

a bunch of littles can make a big difference

the people of the world can see each other and protect each other...
the world we live in has new rules.
the tech has brought in new justice.
we aren't just studying human history, we are shaping it.

stop at nothing.

this is what the world should be like

thank you Keaton dear...

"African voices respond to hyper-popular Kony 2012" Excellent commentary about paternalism & prescriptiveness of msg.

I haven't watched the video yet because I want to follow both sides of the argument without bias.

Is the burden of stopping Kony on the filmmaker who raised awareness for millions or on the millions who are now aware?

 The price of awareness is usually giving people something to argue about.

 making decisions based on bad data is ignorance, not evil.
