    I had no idea. Technology is an amazing and terrible thing.

    1. Hasn’t technology always been an issue? Did Hutterites have conflicts over earlier technologies, such as television, grid electricity, phones, etc?

    2. Do individual colonies ever agree collectively to not use a particular technology, like television or cell phones?

    3. On a rural colony, more or less closed to outsiders, with kids educated on the colony itself, isn’t it rather easy to keep electronic games and cell phones out of the hands of kids? How does this become an issue?

    Is it the adults using cell phones, etc, and the kids picking them up and getting engrossed in them that way?

    Yes, one can say technology has always been an issue, for some colonies more so than others. Living on a colony doesn’t mean we don’t have access to cell phones, games and such. Children can get them any number of ways, gifts…and yes, also being introduced to them by the adults in their lives. No matter how it happens, we need to be vigilant.
