Thank you for your posting. We are not Amish, but like you admire their way of life and culture.
I look at the world sometimes as it is now, and think what a mess it all is. I honestly believe that a lot of the problems we have today have come about as a result of the industrial revolution. Some hail it as a great period of advancement, but I am not so sure.
The Amish have survived just fine living a simple life without technology and lead a life almost identical to those who lived pre-Industrial Revolution.
