I'm not sure how to comment on what should take priority in political agenda as so many issues are very important. How do we compare thousands of people being killed internationally to a domestic financial crisis which drives hundreds of thousands into poverty, for instance? This is always the case with politics.
All causes should be so lucky to have such a word-of-mouth epidemic as this video has created. I mean, I care now compared to yesterday when I did not simply because I was ignorant to the problem.
I do know, however, that if we turn a blind eye to international crimes that do "not concern us" entire populations can be wiped out like with the Rwandan genocide or even the beginning of WWII which was ignored by the US.
This is why most of us are not politicians - it's too difficult prioritising between causes, lobbyists, etc.
I am not sure what the resolution is to prioritising but I definitely feel this should be on the "to-do" list.
