Will Breaking Amish Last?

The return of Long Island Medium on TLC (tlc.discovery.com) has given me a couple of entertainment because I was also triggered by ‘Breaking Amish‘.

Breaking Amish is a revolutionary reality show because it stirs the consciousness of some Amish and Mennonite who have been wanting to ‘go out’ of their ‘shell.’ The sad thing, however, is that they will not only travel the outside world; they will terminate their membership to the Amish community with a traditionally preserved and unusually distinctive culture, as well.

Will they succeed?

Culture is an entire way of life. Changing a part of it is not enough. ‘Breaking Amish‘ means changing a whole lot of attitude, beliefs, getting out of their own social organization, getting rid of their own arts, literature, religion, highly established normative standards (including the use of electricity in daily life), embracing a new economic system, and adapting to the world of advanced technology.

Breaking Amish is aired on Sundays at 10:00pm Eastern Standard Time.

  1. I just watched this show for the first time. I find it quite interesting. Changed my view on the Amish culture. Hearing what they have to say on our everyday life is quite funny.
