This is a question First World Problems

Onemunki says: We live in a world of genuine tragedy, starvation and terror. So, after hearing stories of cruise line passengers complaining at the air conditioning breaking down, what stories of sheer single-minded self-pity get your goat?

I've got a first world problem with people who all of a sudden claim to care about the third world
Fuck off out of my news feed with all your Kony shit!

At lest he's giving young black people a job

But in all seriousness, why do all these people, who only yesterday had the biggest problem of getting enough money for the latest computer game or night out with their mates, now care massively about African politics and then assume that putting up posters and spamming Facebook is going to make a difference in a country thousands of miles away!?

As said further down this page, they seem to think that they could stop the likes of Hitler, Kim Jon Ill, Mussulini etc. by fly postering their local town and telling all their mates about the nasty man in Germany/North Korea/Italy

Because raising awareness is such a bad thing right?
(although actually, it seems to have failed on at least one count, I don't know what a Kony is or where one would buy one)

Didn't George Michael accuse him of slavery?

Raising awareness is pointless.
Everyone knew who Hitler was but it was a war that stopped him, not public opinion.
Also, see my posts about Invisible Children funding an army which has been known to rape and pillage.
Oh, and apparently the US military is aware of this guy and he's on their hit list. They may seem to take forever to get people but no amount of social media spamming will make them get him any faster.

Sorry, I read that as
blah blah blah blah I'm right blah blah blah no decent argument blah blah blah.

So I don't really know how to respond.

It's not the raising awareness that bothers me too much
Its the fact that these people who I have as "friends" all of a sudden give a massive shit about a tyrant that no one had really head of before and get all arsey and aggressive when you say anything slightly negative about this whole pointless fly postering thing they want to do, but probably won't cos they'll watch tv, stay in bed, have something else to do.

If you didn't care about all the dictators in the world yesterday why do you give a massive fuck now!? Cos it's the cool thing!? Piss off!
