The Amish

With the increase of technology, some people decided to don't use this technology and created a new concept : Amish life.

The Amish life consist to escape the technology and the modern city and live according to the will of Jesus since the 1950's. They live in group, with a leader. They work on their farms with old tools, in consequences, they loose in speed but gains in the joy of living. In their communities, there are a limit of the technology they can use and so, they can work slowly and they can work longer.
