This means no television, the internet, radio, and even clothing that are otherwise fastened by hook and rings. The Amish abhor all forms of violence and prefer everything in their retreat centers to be solemn, simple, and rudimentary - a true retreat from the hectic and noisy city life.

Love The 'Land Of The Free & Home Of The Brave'

Apart from the countryside Pennsylvanian Amish communities, some cities in Pennsylvania have perfectly fused ecology with urbanization.
