Preparedness

3515 CLUI photo

Preparedness is an expanding enterprise, and is one of the defining conditions of our times. First responders build spaces to practice for disasters, large and small; militaries train in mock environments and design contingencies; governments build redundancies and escape plans; and individuals become increasingly aware of what may or may not occur. As preparedness grows, society becomes both more and less secure simultaneously, as we know that what we anticipate, we in some way manifest.
