    Are you sure you saw the real one?

    People were circulating an old Russian viral vid of guy going crazy while publicly naked and passing it off as the invisible children guy.


    Edit: nvm. Just saw swordpath's vid.

    Mental health issues are strange. If he has trouble with some form of psychosis, I feel sorry for him.

    As far as the Kony 2012 video. I am worried that these sorts of tactics are being used to create "awareness."

    What happens after that "awareness" is created? How can the next step be taken properly, when there is all this noise and controversy about the truthfulness of the propaganda?

    I feel like Mike Daisey's Foxconn play is the same sort of manipulation.

    His wife says drugs/alcohol weren't a factor but it was solely due to stress/dehydration/sleep deprivation. Who knows.
    Could be true. I wonder if that was a bipolar manic episode coinciding with instant viral fame. He's got what could be perceived as manic energy/conquering fixation about him in the video. Successfully dealing with each of those alone is challenging; successfully dealing with those two together is unlikely.

    Invisible Children wa-a-a-a-y over-achieved with Salience. In their plan, if they had a plan, I assume the posters and days of action events would have been next, producing some Imagery and maybe even Performance results, moving new guys up the pyramid. As it is, this thing turns out wa-a-a-a-y more related to wa-a-a-a-a-y more people's lives than anyone expected--yay, social media!--and all those extra millions of people in on the story now already have Judgments and Feelngs. The hype moved much faster than the charity's attempts to capitalise on the attention and the audience have already moved to their own sense of how this thing resonates. Or detonates.

    While this particular practice is terrible, I'm excitedly waiting for everyone to inevitably calm down, actually look in to Invisible Children as a charity, and come to the realization all their donations just went to an organisation that supports military incursion and the UPDF, who outnumber Kony's LRA about 10:1, have been accused of their own rape/pillage/plunder atrocities, and all those fun things.

    And naturally, showing that the US never learns, we trained the UPDF and then they promptly invaded the Congo to take all their shiny things. GG.

    So, yeah. Obviously Kony is a psycho maniac that should be stopped. But, "Send a maniac to catch one" only worked in Demolition Man.
    +1. Yeah, you gotta get all the info before getting on board with stuff like this. They never tell the whole story.
    I have an inner monologue that sounds strikingly similar to something off Animal Planet.

    Anyone else get KONY's new rap album that came out today?

    It's got some pretty good tracks on it.
