Some have tried, and I completely agree with this. But they make each member sign a contract when they turn 18 that essentially gives away any right to sue the colony. I know this because, like Iíve said, Iíve had over 20 work for me over the years. One hadnít signed, just left, says he wonít go back unless they take that requirement off the table.

Nobody is painting anyone with anything. None of this is even derogatory towards Hutterites, especially as individuals. It’s simply a way to help those who don’t want to stay in the Hutterite life, because those that don’t literally get zero support from anywhere.

And as to the scamming thing, I saw that internal Hutterite memo, which was circulated after this organization was started. I then looked up his business and saw that it had an A+ rating with the better business bureau, which is quite curious since the internal colony memo circulated claimed that there were multiple lawsuits filed against his company, EnviroOrange, claiming fraud and not paying suppliers and taking money from colonies. I’ll say this, the Hutterite that tweeted that letter at me better have some receipts to prove what was claimed in the letter otherwise could be looking at a libel suit.

Those runaways that work and have worked for you simply did it because they were young and wanted money, that they could spend on what ever the helll they wanted too.And then when they get older or sick, or stuck with DEPT, most of them go back to the colony where they don't have to worry or even think about where they are going to sleep,eat fill the vehicle up with gas,get a house and get taken care of when they get old and frail. And those that are saying we are a cult and other falsehoods, your full of BS.You don't understand the hutterite way of life unless you live it.So don't try to pretend you know our culture by reading the biased info on the internet or talk from the neighbors or driving by our place or seeing 20 hutterites at Walmart. There is no group of people out there that is perfect and we sure as in the heck are not either. Hutterite culture has change a lot since it began because you have to go with the times and it 2018 no 1900 but that does not mean we have to abandon it,it's not perfect but it's the best **** way to live in my opinion, i know because i actually live it.

I could care less if you think it is the best way to live. If someone doesnít want to live it then they should have options to not.

And no, out of 20 guys only 4 have gone back to the colony, so very low return rate. And ya, of course they come to work for the money, what kind of brilliant insight is that supposed to be? One left me after a couple months to go north and got into drug issues and ended up getting taken back to the colony, and I agree that it is the absolute best place for him. Others were strictly because of girlfriends.

For the record, I did not say nor imply that it is a cult.

Ya and what did they have to say? Other than the aforementioned guy who developed a drug problem and another who left on bad terms with my brother from having the gall to call him a fat ass over and over, theyíve all left on good terms and many still come back to work here on their days off.

And there are many that agree it is the best way to live and that it fully within their rights. Others donít agree and they should get support when they choose to try something else.

It’s a true socialist communists system. /shrug

I don’t agree with them but in another 100 years that all that’s going to be left

If someone wants to leave they are free to go.... All of ours that left had no trouble getting jobs, pretty good jobs. They are usually talented individuals. If not it may be because they were aragant or lazy in the first place and didn't take well to training. Change of scenery would do some good. One of ours that came back said, what's the point, all I did was work work work, didn't have time for any fun. At least here I have a life and can do something besides work work work
