I don't know that it is a true statement. The Amish have domestic violence because the proscribe a strict gender behavior code which actually encourages domestic violence. They have also of late suffered from young-on-old crimes (been in the paper, they hold the victim down and shave or cut their whiskers, which is a direct attack on the traditions of the Amish).



I think a simpler life can be more rewarding IF it is replaced by a pure devotion to things like nature, nurturing oneself and others, appreciating others for exactly what they are and no more, and healing consumerism. Then also, that freed-up time needs hobbies, like whittling/wood carving, quilt-making or candle-making, something to fill in the gaps that were eaten up by the old way of life.

The Amish also run many puppy mills and do not treat the animals with respect. Not my idea of a rewarding lifestyle by any means. There seems to be a lack of respect for life in their rigid lifestyle.

Best Answer

I agree. Just because something is a tradition doesn't make it right. Genetics is showing us how we create our offspring by focusing attention on what we desire. Like the Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints in the paper wor much lately; by punishing free will choice and learning life by rote, their genetics eventually won't contain creative problem solving as a possibility (except for the rare genetic throwback). Religion for the sake of tradition is always a mistake, I think.

I think it's much harder, not more rewarding. Me, I COULD do it if I HAD to, but I sure like my electric dishwasher and all that goes with electricity.

Not sure about the Amish.. but I have been on hudderite farms doing deliveries and pickups. Women are treated less than the cattle. I saw a 9 year old boy driving a tractor... taking 30 women 8-50 on a hay bale wagon to go out to the fields to do rock picking by hand

Best Answer

Proof? Not sure what you mean. It seems to me that it is all very subjective. What is rewarding for some would be death to others.
