It amazes me how a viral campaign can get so much attention so quickly. It's a phenomenal thing to see. But seeing how fast this popped up over everyone's Facebook pages in a matter of hours, makes me think, what if this is all BS? It's so easy to manipulate and spread viral videos. I'm not trying to deter anyone's opinions here, just encouraging a critical thinking pattern about anything, really, in the media today.
I still believe we should fight (peacefully) for international justice and raise awareness of the evils going on in the world, but don't get caught up in the topicality of Kony 2012. With all the hype of this campaign, it's easy to be an ignorant follower without doing some fact checking first. Just be a critical thinker, your own thinker. —JL
