Your post is not very informative. Are your stupid people Joseph Kony, Invisible Children (and others who campaign against Joseph Kony), people who would make fun of Invisible Children (and others who campaign against Joseph Kony), or...?

A good portion of the African continent has been ruled by genocidal madmen for the better part of the last hundred years. People turn a blind eye because its easier than doing the right thing, and even when someone does do the right thing, people get pissed off about it, just look at the last mass murderer dictator the US took out of power.

The modern English word "stupid" has a broad range of application, from being slow of mind (indicating a lack of intelligence, care or reason), dullness of feeling or sensation (torpidity, senseless, insensitivity), or lacking interest or point (vexing, exasperating). It can either infer a congenital lack of capacity for reasoning, or a temporary state of daze or slow-mindedness.

James F. Wells, Ph. D., in his book, "Understanding Stupidity,"[10] defines stupidity thusly, "The term may be used to designate a mentality which is considered to be informed, deliberate and maladaptive." Dr. Welles distinguishes stupidity from ignorance; one must know they are acting in their own worst interest. Secondly, it must be a choice, not a forced act or accident. Lastly, it requires the activity to be maladaptive, in that it is in the worst interest of the actor, and specifically done to prevent adaption to new data or existing circumstances. According to Dr. Welles, mental schemas, which help us adapt to our environment and process new ideas, can also, simultaneously, be maladaptive: "However adaptive a schema may be, it will also be maladaptive to the extent that built-in biases compromise data so that perceptions will conform to expectations and desires. In addition, a schema's behavioral program (which presumably was adaptive when formed) might become maladaptive as conditions change. If fundamental conditions change significantly, maintaining a schema may be maladaptive. On the other hand, altering behavior to fit fantasies may also be maladaptive. Just when and how much change is needed are very subjective matters, and the schema is inherently biased about maintaining both its integrity and existence."[11]


and the etymology of the word :

Stupidity is a quality or state of being stupid, or an act or idea that exhibits properties of being stupid.[3] The root word stupid,[4] which can serve as an adjective or noun, comes from the Latin verb stupere, for being numb or astonished, and is related to stupor:[5] in Roman culture, "the stupidus of the mimes" was a sort of "professional buffoon - the 'fall-man', the eternal he-who-gets-kicked."[6]

According to the online Merriam-Webster dictionary, the words "stupid" and "stupidity" entered the English language in 1541. Since then, stupidity has taken place along with "fool," "idiot," "dumb," "moron," and related concepts as a pejorative appellation for human misdeeds, whether purposeful or accidental, due to absence of mental capacity.

The word "stupidest" is increasingly common in newspapers.
hope that helped

There are ALWAYS two sides to every story. This viral film has caught the attention of many people - but you are all far too late. Watching the Kony video is essentially watching old news. They started filming in 2003, and northern Uganda has been free of LRA violence and war for over five years. In fact, the LRA have signed a peace accord! They are rebuilding and restoring the peace.

Yes - the leader is still out there. However, the recruitment of children has decreased 80%. This isn't due to the Invisible Children organization, its because Ugandan military and the ICC have intercepted. The Invisible Children group are trying to pass a bill that allows America to MILITARISE the region.

They are providing 'MISINFORMATION' to woo idealistic followers. The group have combined multiple regional conflicts to make it appear this is one rapidly increasing issue. When confronted about their dodgy tactics, the head spokesperson stated;

I agree with you that leading people to believe that the war is still happening in Uganda is not ethically right. It's something we've been addressing internally, focusing on getting all staff and supporters on the same page (of communication)."

If you read the news, or even had an ounce of interest in the on-going unrest in Africa you would already know this and not be fooled. Yes, awful things happen to people in 3rd world countries but this has been occurring for centuries, it isn't a recent occurrence.

The following sources are cited (unlike the staff at Invisible Children):

SOURCES: Michael Kirkpatrick, a long-time Independent Global Citizen, he has resided in Uganda and other regions of Africa. He has no political, religious or financial agenda. He wrote this article and gave an in-depth insight to whats really going on. He also questioned important members of Invisible Children about their motives. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Charity Navigator is a website that breaks down the proceeds and donations given to Invisible Children, and subsequently shows what percentile of that is REALLY going towards these impoverished children. A measly slither of what is going into the founders' pockets. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

I've read an interesting passage from a Northern Ugandan man. However, it is not 100% verified. He advised the Northern Ugandan parliament to list "Invisible Children" as their main priority on their "FRAUDULENT ACTIVITY" list. (See second comment, username Livingstone). [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

THIS article asking Invisible Children why they were lobbying for sub-standard AND illegal legislation has since been removed and deleted. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

ADDITIONALLY - Members of Invisible Children were freely making statements as to what their "allowance" would purchase for *them*. It was on a forum on the official website, and has subsequently also been REMOVED. All these *deletions*...
