    I live in NE Ohio and a lot of Amish have phones, solar panels, hot water showers/toilet and refrigeration run on propane.
    Not all, but some... Depending on what their church allows.

    Notice that the when the driver of the buggy drives on the right side of the buggy. Being the way it has always been driven even before the car was invented. Left hand cars were a mistake that Henry ford made and now left hand drive is still the incorrect side to drive.

    I wish someone could teach me how to live without refrigeration. I understand having chickens can provide eggs daily. Having a cow gives milk every day. But what do they do to preserve left-overs? And how do they preserve meat? If you kill a cow for food, it can't be eaten all in one day. Is everything smoked?

    This is so not right. The Amish I know have hot and cold running water, not only in the kitchen but bathroom and laundry area. They have floor lamps that are lit by propane gas. Some have pictures hanging but they're simple. Some women work at Farmer Markets away from home...some have stores where they sell soap and lotion that they make. Others might have quilt stores. They're more modern then expected. They treat their animals poorly, dogs are only used for breeding over and over again...there's no love towards animals.

    I think that the Amish people live absolutely correctly, as God intended us to live. They farm, they are wonderful craftspeople, they are self-sufficient, they read the Bible and they live according to God's word. We have to remember that this life is very short, and after comes the Judgment.

    I don't understand the no plumbing believe? The Romans had an excellent plumbing system 2000 years ago. Jesus must have taken a poop on a Roman toilet at some point! I'm confused 😳

    I really don't understand you folks that always question the promise Amish people. There's certainly nothing wrong with there lifestyle I just wish that people would leave them along and stop downing them and also passing judgement if we had more folks like them the world would be a much better happy and sample life then there wouldn't be all this wickness in high place you folks know they don't believe in cameras then yous really shouldn't tougher and put them in the precision God love you folks I know yous probably mean well but place stop and just leave there's loving people alone. I'm not Amish myself but I love them they are my brother and sister in Christ I know it's there choice to be entervived but please don't condemn them and make light of them there beauful people's and I've learned a lot from them and there standards and they mean a lot to me just love and respect them place thanks God richly bless and keep in his care. P.s. I'm not trying to be rude or mean but it vouchers me greatly when people's goes against the Amish keep them off camera and respect there believe and faith in God. God love all you Amish people's I love yous very much and I thank the Lord folks like yous. I do hope someone well reply to me long commute here. Just leave them alone and respect and love them as your fellow man love our neighbour as our selves they are my neighbour. I admirer all you Amish people's and above all keep the faith in Jesus Christ. May God richly bless and keep yous all in his care. You lady's are very very modest and I certainly love and admirer all that.


    When i get older, my dream is to have 2 houses ... One small city, suffiecient house for me and my family that is up to date with modern day life and a cottage somewhere where i can go and relieve myself from the stress,hustle and bustle of this world... Where i can do lots of worship, meditation, pondering, thinking and hiking and reconnecting with God, nature and myself... Not to the extent of the Amish people, though I would have no problem doing those things and even getting my children to do those things so we can be grateful and appreciative.

    Interesting to read these comments. I lived with two groups, both very conservative. This includes the Swartzentrubers. It seems outsiders either idolize them or despise them. The truth is in the middle. Most are very good, honest, decent people. A few are no good, just like any group of people. In my six years among them, I saw the majority are doing their best, working, raising their kids, etc. A few were money hungry, gossips, even at least two creepy perverts.

    You never hear cursing when watching the Amish, to be so respected. They don't waste time watching depressing news or other crap on TV which means they get so much more done, and learn more hobbies - I grew up without a TV and I was very physically active and took classes in many kinds of art, we communicated better as a family.

    Just remember. If all western world lived like this, we would not have enough space, not enough food and wood burning pollutes with NoX and other dangerous chemicals in high concentration compared to wind powered electricity.
    Progress has more advantages than disadvantages, if you use it correctly.
    I like my insulin, my wind powered electricity and so on :-)

    • Karakoth
      Karakoth 6 months ago

      Multiply those 330k with 1000 if we all have to live like that and the NoX levels will be deadly.
      And we, are all of us. Our ancestors lived like that. Why go back? It wasnt better or simpler. The Amish only live like that because they work hard and can sell their crops and furniture to modern people at modern prices.

    • Julian Dale

      We've lived the past? Who's we? The Amish community resembles rural folk from the 19th century. Btw, I'm pretty sure 330,000 Amish fireplaces pale in comparison to the greenhouse emissions from everyone else. And I said enlightening, not admirable.

    • Karakoth
      Karakoth 6 months ago

      But we do know it. We have lived it, we have studied it and we can watch it. And tbh, they arent that special. There are tribes in South America, Asia or Africa who live a even more modest life style. And isnt there an issue with the Amish having forced marriages, child abuse and a very patriarchal system? Not sure how enlightening I find them. I'd rather say, dim!

    • Julian Dale

    The Amish are head-buried ostriches. As Satanica overruns their land and becomes their neighbor on all sides, eventually even the scriptural-abiding Amish will get ass-raped by the Satanic forces which they shun. Tolerating or ignoring Evil is no virtue.

    They are a cult! I didn't know this until I moved to Lancaster County PA and found out many of their dirty secrets and how bad their women & animals have it. This video perpetuates the unrealistic perception of what they are. Infested with men who engage in beastiality, pedophilia, animal abuse & unethical business practice.
    They have no respect for the land and cut every tree they possibly can down, pollute the waterways like the Chesapeake Bay by letting their livestock in the creeks and using their own septic holding tank sewage to put on their fields instead of buying fertilizer.
    They create a danger on the roadways that their buggies & farm equip. damage but they don't have to pay for road repair, be responsible for accidents caused by them or have laws like not allowing children to operate their buggies or babies to be protected in car seats. Many accidents are caused from them not tending their fences and their livestock getting out onto the roads. They pay the politicians cash to stop them from making laws & ordinances which would hold them responsible for their wrongdoings.
    The clinics in their area even have to have special medicine for diseases caused by beastiality. I could go on...

    Complete BS. I work with Amish people and they all use cell phones and even have facebooks. I work construction and they all drive trucks and other machinery around the job site. They also use electric tools and have power in their houses. Don’t let this fool you, you go to landcaster and ol Amos is using power tools to put together your “authentic Amish furniture”. Great people but they live a lie and make money of stupid tourists that go to landcaster.

      I remember driving by some houses in Indiana one evening and noticing how brightly lit the interiors were. Closer inspection showed that many houses in this area had propane tanks and utilized propane lighting throughout the house. I remember our old camper having the same lamps. That propane was trucked in. The tank was produced and installed. It's just so interesting to see where they draw the line.
