On Kony and viruses

The article I link below gives a balanced approach to thinking about the whole Kony 2012 video and the huge reaction to it.  I appreciated how the authors of the blog showed that desire to give a more nuanced approach to the issues of Africa.  As one who has been in Africa more than once and have many friends laboring and living there I can say that Westerners simply don’t think like Africans do and we create a lot of unnecessary problems as a result.

Regardless, if you have heard about Kony but you have not locked into a position on it, read this, it will help you get your mind thinking a bit more clearly on the whole thing.
