Sorry- I don't YouTube. Is that many self-proclaimed views legit? Are there really that many followers who will flock to whatever the latest trend their celebrity gods tell them to adopt.

Excuse me while I take a moment to weep for the lost soul of humanity.

I'm fairly sure it's legit; I see no reason for Google to lie about that (though personally, I'd rather it be counterfeit). Such sheeple-ness is certainly indicative that "humanity has lost its soul", but it is an inevitable consequence of the connected world we are in.

I would like to point out that anti-anti-Kony has become more popular recently, as more truth is exposed. It's rather disturbing how so many people believed the deception thrown out in the video.
(edit: this indicator certainly indicates how perception has changed on this subject, but the page is still rather biased)

All it takes to change reality is the intent that it shall be changed.

when millions understand the fraud of debt and the racket of war, it will be over for the rats before dinner time.

If such a tipping point can be that closer through Kony in Uganda, than so be it.

I don't think anyone agreed that Kony is a good guy. The point I was making is that no matter what, a single viral video should not persuade the populace to stupidly charge into a developing country. This isn't the foreign policy that will get humanity anywhere.

Fully agree. Time to get out of Syria, Lybia, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan and a whole pile of other countries as it was all and is based on crap and stupidity.

If Kony is not yet dead then their is a viable non-invasion strategy, though unpleasant, that can destroy him for good. Since Kony and his men rape and capture children to become soldiers, and Africa has a very large AIDS epidemic, infected people can be moved to the areas where the attacks take place. They will be ensnared by their own destructive tendencies.

For Bitcoin to be a true global currency the value of BTC needs always to rise.
If BTC became the global currency & money supply = 100 Trillion then ⊅1.00 BTC = $4,761,904.76.

Please do share what their own destructive tendencies as you seem well informed on the subject.
Surely you don't imply that reproducing themselves is a destructive tendency do you?

So your advocating finding Kong, staging an invasion of African countries, mass kidnapping AIDS victims and turning the victims over to Kony.

And you are doing this to kill Kony.

What are you injecting?

LOL it appears at this point the weight of the evidence is piling up on the "just plain wrong" side...

Well, there you go! Another quality liberal bleeding heart voice reduced to alcohol abuse and public masturbation. I'm sure it will all come out that it was society's fault for not having a village to raise his sorry ass.

seems the guy in the video went crazy.

http://edition.cnn.com/2012/03/16/world/africa/uganda-viral-video/index.html

When I was watching the video they made I was thinking that the director and Kony are probably the same type of people.  They both are charismatic and can influence people.  As you can see, it does not take much for people to go crazy.

Introducing constraints to the economy only serves to limit what can be economical.

Well I was reacting to the glamorous list of glitterati who are flocking to the cause... but I do have to say - "closeted evangelical aspiring show-tunes dancer." is a truly classic description. Thank you for bringing that into my day.

White powders and glass pipes have that effect, remember Martin Lawrence and his intersection issue?
