> So how do we dial in some robustness to modern society?

Well, my answer to these types of questions is usually the same. Learn 
from something that's been solving them for a few billion years: Evolution.

Robustness is almost always achieved through diversity. The more 
different systems you have, the more likely that at least one of them 
will survive conditions that will kill the others off. Monocultures are 
inevitable deadly, sooner or later. Why do you think there are so damned 
many species?
