Unsurprisingly, this has sparked a great deal of controversy and debate over the value and potentially propagandized nature of the organization and video, respectively. The results of the pressure the supporters of the movement put on elected officials and any actions they take could have huge consequences for our foreign policy, with particular respect to Africa, a place many developed countries have long been averse to treading. So, before I ramble with my own thoughts about the organization, video, impact of social media, etc, what are yours?
By the way, here's an article about how Invisible Children plans to get out on top of the heat they've been taking and make a new video addressing said criticisms. Pretty compelling stuff, if you ask me (not that you were).
And if you haven't yet watched the video that has nearly 75 million people talking, go ahead and kill 30 minutes, my treat.
