There’s a crackling tension in the air? Can you feel it? Part of it, of course, is the the chaotic state the world’s climate: from superstorms to uncontrollable wildfires. On top of these shudders from the planet is the often racist, childish and violent rhetoric from our political leaders. It’s no wonder that more people are circling the wagons, “fortressing” their homes with security systems, surveillance cameras and generators. We don’t have to make choices about our homes from a place of fear.
