Turn the other cheek

When the feds come a knocking there will be little resistance from the Amish. The thing to understand is that their self reliance is reliance on their God. This world holds no pleasure or pain for them, save for what God sends them.
True followers of this faith are the pinnacle of peaceful resistance.

I have tons of respect and admiration for them, and some are my kin. I do believe their simpler existence should be an example to us all. Only without the self sacrifice that their dogma requires.
