Herman Reyes sent this website to check out for more information about the project.
I do agree that Kony is not a good person at all, and he should be delt with. But the money spent on it shouldn’t be used for anything but this project.
I’m still not sure on how I feel about this campaign.
I feel as though the Kony 2012 campaign is about spreading awareness about the severity of the issues going on in Uganda. How many people can say that they knew who Kony was or looked deeper into the situation to find out more prior to the campaign’s initiation. Realistically, things might not improve as fast as many hoped but with awareness comes change. As more individuals begin to care, steps towards fixing the problem can be made.
So really they want people to help and support for this cause but only less than half percent actually go towards the cause. I think its good that their is an organization to this but it’s a bit of a flip flop. There are those who think highly and those who look for the wrong.
It doesnt matter what issue you’re talking about, there is always going to be somebody opposing and looking for wrong in it. This critique isnt 100% clear on what exactly they find wrong with the KONY 2012 campaign. Do they think they arent spending the money the way they should be? Do they think that invisible children is supporting armies who are bad people? At one point they talk about how they make Kony seem worse than he is. Are they defending Kony or are they saying that invisible children is blowing things out of proportion? This critique isnt nearly clear to change my mind.
I started reading that recent post on this website and about five minutes in i decided to stop. I get where he is coming from, but i disagree with his thoughts on what the organization stands for. Sure, they might exaggerate the truth, but that is to get people to act on the problem. If they didnt make the problem seem serious, then no one would care to act on it.
