They resist technological accelerationism or the trap of technosocial progress.
The Amish are considered excellent farmers, growing and storing the majority of their food and purchasing in stores only staples such as flour and sugar. The Old Order Amish refuse to use most modern farm machinery, preferring the sweat of their brow over the ease of modern conveniences.
All property is publicly owned and each person works and is paid according to their abilities and needs
The Amish are not involved in state or national politics, and, as pacifists, they do not serve in the military. They also disavow social security and most types of insurance, often pooling their resources to help Amish families in need. Their settlements are divided into church districts, autonomous congregations of about 75 baptized members. If the district becomes much larger, it is again divided, because members meet in each other’s homes. There are no church buildings. Each district has a bishop, two to four preachers, and an elder; but there are no general conferences, mission groups, or cooperative agencies.
The peaceful communist uniform
The Amish are best known for their plain clothing, most of it self-made, and nonconformist lifestyle.
Advertising is forbidden
The Amish typically accept the photographing of their way of life, but they forbid photos of themselves, believing such things are graven images in violation of the Second Commandment.
Communism in action
The Amish are famous for their barn raisings. These cooperative efforts often involve hundreds of men, as well as scores of women who feed the workers.
Amish children typically attend one-room schools run by the community.
The quiet, reserved manner that the Amish try to maintain does not prevent them from partaking of common pastimes and games. Volleyball and softball are popular with many Amish families, but they are played strictly for enjoyment and not in a spirit of competition. Flower gardens, if kept simple, are also permissible. Once the daily chores are finished and the children’s schoolwork completed, Amish families will often read or sing together in the evenings, before going to bed early in preparation for their next day’s chores.
Dialectical materialism will never produce communism, because it favors matter over mind. The Amish favor mind over matter and prove that faith in God family and community lead to a communistic society.
Dialectical materialism has led to more Capitalism. Modernity is mutually assured destruction, because globalism and accelerationism emphasize technological progress or a philosophy of matter over mind.
Comic book communists could learn a thing or two from a Mennonite or Amish community.
