I personally think that SL is indeed a part of what will bring about world peace, through greater communication and understanding. But it cannot be the peace of the graveyard, the peace of silenced dissenters in mass graves, or the ethnically cleansed, the peace of anonymized and erased differences that in fact should remain meaningful and must be managed, not muted. It cannot be the peace of closed forums. It has to be a democratic, just peace. What the world’s hideous armed conflicts have told us is true at home as well as abroad: no justice, no peace. Work more on justice in Second Life; the peace will begin to come of its own accord; the two are inseparable.
