They
are a group of people who migrated from Switzerland in the 18th
century. They fled religious persecution over there. They now mainly
live in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana. They are Christians who
believe God has a personal interest in them. They are now, two
groups, a very traditional one, « The old older Amish »
and a more recent one, composed of people who have left the first one
because they accept more progress in their lives.

They have
always been against the traditional Americanconsuming way of live ;
instead, they prefer to live simply, not according to fashion, and
repair things instead of throwing them away.

The Children
go to one-room-school and they only have one teacher for all eight
grades ; the subjects they learn are basic reading, writing and
arithmetic.

They don't use
energy because they think it's bad for the good of their community.
They depend on the weather to work from sunrise to sunset. And they
live by farming, but use horeses instead of tractors. And since, they
are a strong community, they help one another a lot, by building
their houses or barns together.

They
communicate by letters since they don't have ( or use ), any
telephones, radios, tvs..., stereas or computers.

And finally,
they don't own or drive cars because they think that car drivers have
become more self-centered, Instead, they use Horse-Drawn-Buggies.
