I question things which people take for granted. I would have been that kid who said the emperor was naked. In real life that kid would probably have been lynched, but I'll take my chances...
I believe truth inherently valuable, no matter how well intentioned the ideology it dispels may be.
I also write about random interesting things from my personal life.
The Amish, especially those of the Old Order, are
probably best known for their avoidance of certain modern technologies. The
avoidance of items such as automobiles and electricity is largely
misunderstood. The Amish do not view technology
as evil. Individuals may petition for acceptance of a particular technology in
the local community. In some communities, the church leaders meet annually to
review such proposals. In others, it is done whenever necessary. Because the
Amish, like some Mennonite groups, and unlike the Catholic
or Anglican Churches, do not have a hierarchical
governing structure, differing communities often have different ideas as to
which technological items are acceptable.
