Is it normal to be an amish as you want to be?

No one I know (except what I heard) is an Amish and my relatives were never Amish and I was never raised Amish, but, as I read on the internet, I wanted to be Amish, I wanted it for the sake of inner peace, it sounds good to me. I would use technology as rarely as possible and I bought an Amish book 'The Amish Life' on the internet (on ThriftBooks), and am willing to follow most of the rules. Amish eat simple foods, and dress in black and white plaindress, plain clothes. I like the idea of using oil lamps and a pocket radio (not an Amish idea but it's merely run on batteries) and yes, I'm Australian and Australians except me aren't Amish but I, for some reason, always liked Western religion, American religion, it sounds like the proper thing to do.

Is It Normal?

  • if an amish committed a bad enough crime would they get the electric chair?

    • No, they'd be forced to watch all of Kim Kardashian's nonsense until they have paid for their sins! XD

    • Perhaps, if an Amish killed someone, but the thing is that the Amish don't generally go around killing people and I don't think there are any states that still use the electric chair.

    • And more of my smarts which is what you're missing out on. I'm not arguing with you, some of you people don't like me (and you don't like my brain), however I'm buying online an oil lamp to make less use of an electric light. Oh yes, you can't contact with the use of mobile phones. Letters will be written and marriage won't be done, as I naturally don't believe in marriage. As minimalistic as I am there's nothing I can argue about on this. If I ever see you I'll take you out to lunch and buy you a beer, and Socrates was humble. A true philosopher is not only smart, but he is virtuous. See my profile under Max Gron and you'll see what I have learned. In my solipsistic viewpoint it was a mistake to create you and your hate of brains, mistaking smarts for itself being stupid or insane is an error, it's a great lie made by a quarter of the handful designed to hate a person because he's smart. I don't only want the truth, but blissful ignorance: the less things I experience and the less I know about them, the more peaceful I'll be. :)

  • I get living a simpler life.
    the religious bit I have issue with.
    we do live in complex times.
    But I like nice cars.
    Travel.
    Foods from everywhere.
    And getting fucked really nicely by a stranger.
