I have opened a thread time ago, entitled “Disappointment about our own species”, which has triggered a wave of very good opinions about the topic. Trying to open its sequel, motivated me to open this thread, where my motivation is to reflect about what would the best way of living in a realistic sustainable way in our planet. Thinking about it, I think I realized that Amish/Mennonites are the more closer group of humans, living in a way I consider an example for the rest of us. Yes, you can take out of the equation religion (if you want), I am explicitly focusing on the way they produce and consume, without needing anything else. In my opinion, if future societies live like Amish/Mennonites, our planet would be a much more sustainable place to live. Amish/Mennonites: 1. Produce what they consume. 2. Do not commercialize (or over-commercialize) what they produce. 3. There is beauty in their ease of live. Can you imagine for a moment (without bringing the religious part of it), what the world would become, if all of us adopt such life style? Also, how many of you… would be able to left being your techno-driven lifestyle for a way of living similar to Amish people, if this would make a better planet to live for all of us?
