Has anyone checked on the Amish lately? Me neither. We just experienced a life-altering pandemic, yet the Amish kept on moving like they always do.

It’s like the vaccine didn’t do anything but kill people alergic to stuff and it’s better to just go outside and do work everyday for health.

nooooooo I bet amish buggies don’t even have seat belts :(

Quarantine is inherent to their culture. But they might want to put Rumspringa on hold for a while.

…what ? Are you using the word quarantine to mean isolating from the more ‘modern’ world ?

Because the Amish didn’t do Lockdowns or anything

That’s precisely what I mean. They are an inherently insular society and a “closed system.” In computing terms, if you only have a LAN and none of the computers are connected to the Internet, then you are fairly safe from computer viruses.

I think the Amish have the opposite strategy. They stayed out and about without drugs/pharma, and as a result their immune systems are robust. They still trade w Americans, that’s how they got Covid.

Being insular to the world probably saved their sanity from the mindfuck during Covid though.

I find it funny they call Americans “English”… like they have no idea of the immigration catastrophe.

That is what I was saying. They have a closed community and were able to be out and about within that.

And yeah I am sure it did save their sanity.

As for immigration, I wish I had the luxury of just being in a small community and not caring about what goes on in the greater world.

So, I grew up next to a small Mennonite community. Nowhere anyone would have heard of. They would sell stuff to other people, offer activities for children, they do Christian outreach and try to tell other people about Jesus. They are not a internal intranet. They are more like a old dialup service still running. People still interact with them. Buy their blankets, meat, chairs and so on.
