Global Internet penetration and ongoing conflicts around the world
Correlation does not imply causation, yet in this instance I believe there is value to the observation. Clear communication is the most important factor of conflict resolution, no matter how grand or small the problem. The Internet, and perhaps more accurately The Web, is the most powerful mode of communication on Earth. Without it, your worldview is shackled by ignorance, and in our age, there is no room for ignorance.
For instance, in Finland broadband access is considered a basic legal right that the government must uphold and from experience, they take this very seriously — this is a good thing. I wish more countries were like this.
