Wild Card's description 
The EU youth are never more ‘secure’ than today, and never more insecure and risk-seeking. ‘Extreme activity’ communities include sports and leisure, drugs and sex, virtual worlds, and new strands of fundamentalism. There is almost a kind of death wish which spreads silently across affluent communities.
