Amish Paradise

Primitive paradise and simplicity They long ago saw their way out of madness. In a hostile world where acts of Gods can destroy everything you had yesterday, all you have is your own disciplined self-reliance and your community. May good Lords help you if your people are crazy or lazy. Wisely, such weakness is prevented by healthy values.

You have the technology that you can build yourself, so you never have to rebuild after a disaster and find yourself empty-handed. How would you build a motor from scratch or a fuel refinement plant? Animal power is reliable and regular; motor powered machines not so much -- complex progressively interdependent technologies likewise.

Life is better without distractions produced by the rudely aggressive entertainment class. It turns out you don't need to be clicking on a cell phone all the time and tolerate exposure to useless and irrelevant information produced as a cover for pushing commercials.

Imagine if you could again be socially healthy instead of phone addicted, or spiritually alive like you were before swallowed by technology. Or having a natural life based on doing real things instead of wasting four hours a day watching insane fictional interactions and pointless ball throwing.

Not too long ago, it was possible to trust others and plan mutual efforts. For people in communities not yet ruined, such things remain possible.

You won't be working a silly office job sending emails, filling out forms, chatting about television shows, and attending meetings. You will be doing real labor to harvest food and build things. All day you are accomplishing things of value, and by sunset have much to show for your efforts.

You leave the phony world of posturing far behind, retaining humility rather than illusions of individualism.

There's no cops or traffic lights
Living in an Amish Paradise
Simplicity brings focus, and then only effort is needed for completion.

Forced to naked reflection, will produces the excellence expected.
