    Default Amish people, an interesting bunch

    These are descendants of Swiss-German Mennonites and earlier of Anabaptists. They are basically religious communists. When they abolished private property in Europe and wanted to take control of a certtain area, Christians and Catholics attacked them and killed off their leaders. Ever since then they have nothing to do with the government and capitalism.

    At least one group of people wants to have nothing to do with so-called "Natural feeling" of accumulation of wealth.
