Nowadays most of crucial aspects of life – business and social life above all – are moving online. According to Peter Ludlow, a professor of philosophy at Northwestern University whose research area includes conceptual issues in cyberspace, there is nothing left to question about that, except for drawing conclusions: the political structure and constitution of virtual worlds will be more and more important to understand the future of democracy. The point of this very accurate essay is focusing on the shift from “real reality” to virtual worlds in order to make our freedom actual.“This book is about those new virtual spaces and the political structures that guide them and the governance structures that emerge within them. This is not about the kinds of laws that terrestrial governments will (attempt to) impose upon virtual worlds. I think that terrestrial governments are rapidly becoming irrelevant. The real questions are about what kinds of laws are being created inside of virtual worlds.”
