After last week’s release of the Kony 2012 video by Invisible Children, and our subsequent discussions of it, you should be in a good position to offer your own opinion on the campaign. What is your opinion of it? Among the questions you might consider when answering that, what do you think of the groups’ goals? What good do you think the campaign might do? What unintended consequences might it have? What do you think of the criticisms the campaign has faced? Do you think those criticisms were adequately addressed in the second Kony 2012 video (posted below)?
