Now that I am finally out of YT jail, I am able to post this clip from a 2021 interview with Philip Rosedale of Second Life about creative digital worlds. At the end of it another person chimes in about the importance of gaming all laws before they go into effect. The idea being that this type of simulation will create a better life for us - less friction, I guess.
“We need to game test our laws before we impose them on people”? This statement seems to assume the laws are intended to be beneficial for the people and that the stated purpose is the actual purpose. One of many assumptions in that profoundly naive statement.
