Driving Resilience By Building Networks

John Robb sometime goes off into some wild speculation but I generally find his analysis of trends to be pretty accurate.  He's gone beyond "fourth generation" warfare and tries to envision communities that are less likely to be hurt by disruptions outside the control of the individuals within the communities.

The idea of the resilient community clearly resonates.  It makes a great deal of sense to many people and there a lots of efforts underway at transition.  However, as always, the big question is: will these efforts be sufficient to make the transition before it becomes a necessity?  
I'm not convinced they will be given historical precedent.  So, the question then becomes:  how do we improve our chances of building resilience?  That's the question I've been grappling with for years and I think I've found the outlines of the answer.
