The Amish mindset is very valuable. Because of their minimalist, "no frills" lifestyle, the Amish are used to simplistic living and the lack of modern technology. The typical American of a younger generation is technologically obsessed. Their life revolves around their cell phone and social media. Electricity, running water, television, and air conditioning is so taken advantage of in the modern era that, should disaster strike, many will never adapt to the change due to their previous luxurious lifestyle. The Amish, with their simplistic ways, are able not to take advantage of things and to fully enjoy what they do possess.
