Nice security if you can afford it


(approx. 150 words)
Please describe the Wild Card (approx. 150 words)
Many resilient communities go autarchic, in the face of sea level rise, extreme weather, unstable land and geological hazards. But, only the rich can afford high levels of security and hazard management. In response, other communities are pushed to cheaper higher-risk areas, where they develop new forms of countercultural action.
