I guess the point I was making is the same type of people we have today have always been around. Sociopaths aren't linked to society but personality or more specifically genetics. And there will be sociopaths in the Amish community as well, mainly the top of the hierarchy given they would like the control I suspect.
But really that is one aspect of the point I was making anyway. You may criticise Western Society for being plastic or sloth like. But it is the free will that makes people desire our society. People don't actually become Amish very often despite it having an appeal because of the sacrifices you have to make. Life as an Amish person isn't all about big families, large homes, being debt free and community. It is about being submissive to God, to act according, hard manual labor and to give up on technology.
