If the culture/religion still lives, how has Western culture changed it?
The culture lives and thrives. I live about 35 miles from an Amish community in Shipshewana, Indiana. They still use horses and buggies for transportation, but many of the young women work in stores and restaurants in town. Of course these stores attract a lot of shoppers and tourists from some distance away and therefore have modern electricity and other conveniences. But I think a lot of these young women marry Amish men and return to their farms that do not have electricity.
