For many people who struggle through their lives probably could use some of the examples from the Amish.
These Amish values or actions may or may not blend into a modern homesteaders lifestyle but you may consider …..

putting God and community ahead of the individual;

a life of ‘goodness’, rather than a life of intellect

wisdom, rather than technical knowledge

community welfare, rather than competition

Avoiding consumerism by wearing uniform plain clothing

separation from, rather than integration with modern worldly society

non-resistance – seeking peaceful resolution to conflicts (that is a homesteaders choice but protecting your family and livestock is important)

they are pacifists and don’t serve in the military

guns are used only for hunting (I am a gun owner that trains for many reasons but I am very much English)

they don’t hold elective office, and usually don’t vote

they don’t own modern technology

never apply or accept any state benefits or use insurance

have their own education system

speak a German dialect among themselves

marry among their community

The Amish are first and foremost – self sufficient.
