“Why indeed are the policies of the virtual world so very different from business as usual in the real world? Even as we accept the answer—because virtual-world designers focus on human happiness while real-world policy designers focus on other things—that answer boggles the mind. Why in heaven’s name has public policy ever focused on anything other than happiness? When did we decide that human well-being was not the most important thing?”
