(Not buying a farm)

Her: “You’re not going to drag me off to live on a farm, are you?”
Me: “Of course not! But there are parts of our modern society that I am increasingly not okay with—social media, algorithmic advertising, cloud services. I find these Amish people stimulating by way of analogy. Maybe we need a New Amish movement. Maybe we need to reject all technologies invented after 2005!”
She smiled with relief and began to express her own misgivings about Facebook.
