Risk is a necessary consequence of dependency.

Or if you’re part of contemporary society then opting out is hardly an option.

It seems impossible to live our contemporary lives without having a dependence on the Internet. All aspects of how we now live have a digital element either directly or indirectly. What I mean is that services we rely upon rely upon the Internet, a kind of virtual network of reliance and dependence. Our daily lives, whether you like it or not, are dependent on the smooth operation of electricity, networks, computers, good clocks and industrial cyber-physical controls. Very few of us can truly opt ourselves out of those things, our dependence, especially our expectation of stable, reliable operation, brings us risk.
