Former Ontario Amish Farmers Find Paradise on PEI

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 19 hours ago
What the Amish operate is a form of natural community. Modernizing the natural community is central to my protocol for ending poverty globally. Some of what they do is unnecessary and some of what they need to do would be highly welcome. Ending poverty and converting global agriculture to organic sustainable systems are all part of a combined solution that ends all environmental abuse in the long term. The Amish are a long way down that road and most importantly they show us what it can actually look like. I am not entirely a fan of horse culture per se but they also preserve it... more »
