Amish still provide an example of how collective consciousness works for some people

I thought I would share this little article from “My Daily Magazine”: “These Facts Will Change the Way You Look at the Amish”.  The title of the magazine reminds me of the grade school “My Weekly Reader”.  The Twitter link says, “That’s why the Amish allow their teenagers to share a bed when dating.”

Very noteworthy is that the Amish want to eliminate individual self-expression and even noting individual differences, with their doll toys. For them, their authoritarian lifestyle works.

It seems that their marital heterosexuality is tied into this kind of group-owned consciousness.
