Regular activities like using electricity is rejected by Amish culture, however, they thrive off our economy by selling us their Amish-made products. Many people believe that the Amish are exempt from paying taxes, however, they are not. They are exempt from the "Social Security Act." They feel that paying insurance is not "trusting in god." Who's to say that an Amish person will not need emergency room care? They are also exempt from medicare.
The Amish believe in a separation between church and state and that they should be able to take care of their own. Many problems arise when this complete separation and power is given to a culture within a nation. How can a society not become corrupt when there are no regulations from the federal government? The perception of a peaceful, loving, non-corrupt and non-harming community allows them to commit such atrocities of sexual abuse, animal abuse, and ignoring some federal laws without much attention.
It can be Argued that allowing such independence can lead to corruption in society. Most people do not see the Amish community as a threat. However, any independent society should not be trusted.
