http://thejuicemedia.com Rap News Episode 12: YES WE KONY. It's March, and the Internet delivers 2012's first globe-consuming meme: the unstoppable, Stop-Kony 2012 video, which has highlighted the plight of African child soldiering like never before. But is it really good? Is it really bad? Or is the world really more complex than 'good guys' and 'bad guys'? Whatevers; one thing's for sure, this is momentous: never had a 27-minute video devoid of both cats and boobs ever achieved such virality. Is this a demonstration of the internet's ability to instantly inform and engage tens of millions; and a hopeful sign that there is a willingness among those millions, to engage passionately with something more meaningful? Or does Kony2012 just mark the dawn of a rapacious new era of viral humanitarian marketing? Join your charitable host Robert Foster - and our special guest, General Baxter, direct from AFRICOM - as we delve into the dark heart of the matter.

Watch the live debate on YouTube -- Tuesday March 13th, 7pm GMT. Richard Branson, Russell Brand, Julian Assange, Eliott Spitzer, Vincente Fox, and many more. Join the debate on Google+: http://goo.gl/0brNT.
We should end the war on drugs. To think poverty can ever be made history is naïve. Marriage should be between man and woman.
You may agree or disagree with any of the above, but if you could hold a debate on the issues that matter to every one of us across the globe, who would you want attend? Presidents? Hollywood stars? Top ranking entrepreneurs? Renowned orators? No doubt.
But what about you? Wouldn’t you and your friends also want to be there? Since the world is now so interconnected, since the global village is now your neighbourhood and mine, surely we should all have a voice.... all have a say in what our village looks like.
The question is: how?
The Versus debates organised by Intelligence Squared is how. IQ2 has already made its name as the forum that has revitalised the art of live debate in several countries. Now we’re going global … and online. Every person in every country can participate.
By making use of the democratic potential provided by Google+ Hangouts we can bring in voices from every corner of the world to the live debate held in London. Yes, there will be presidents, “experts” and a bit of Hollywood glamour, but the importance of the Plus debates lies in the fact that ordinary citizens from around the world can join in too.
You can vote: you may even get the chance to speak. And it really matters that you do. Democracy is too important to be left to the politicians and the experts.
