a force more powerful - non-violence in a video game

a video game called "a force more powerful" is credited with helping to train protesters who were successful in overthrowing the serbian dictator milosivec (Sir, the Gamers Are Revolting!)

from the web site:
"A Force More Powerful is the first and only game to teach the waging of conflict using nonviolent methods. Destined for use by activists and leaders of nonviolent resistance and opposition movements, the game will also educate the media and general public on the potential of nonviolent action and serve as a simulation tool for academic studies of nonviolent resistance."

i wonder what the world would be like if (young) people from all around the world played this game and executed what they learned upon their local goverments.
