This has been spreading like wildfire. I go to a public university in the states and it seems everyone I know has something to say about it. I watched the video last night and this morning again and although it is for a good cause, which I think everyone would naturally support, I disagree with the way that Invisible Children is going about doing this: providing little information and a lot of glitter. This ultimately targets young people who want to belong - like college students.
The guy who made the movie should have kept it more succinct and more alarming. This guy is pretty good at manipulation and instilling "inspiration" which is where he is getting his followers: they want to be apart of the next big movement! They just don't know entirely what it's about, and most likely won't go out of their way to find out.
Overall it was corny, too long, and I didn't appreciate how this guy tried to manipulate us into joining this "revolution". It really targets the ignorance of young people. But this opinion doesn't undermine how tragic the situation is. I hope they do find Kony and bring him to justice. But this will happen again.
Oh, and the parallels to V's speech in V for Vendetta when he broadcasts to the world on tv in the beginning are so subtle....
