Re: "Duopoly Power?" Not to derail. but the amish example is bad. here in western wisconsin we have the 2nd largest amish community outside of pensylvania, and theyuse telephones, cars, vans, televisions, walmart, power tools all they want. they just make local community loopholes like giving thier neighbor money to purchase and own the vehicle or hire a shuttle/taxi to take them into town, they as a community usually have a community telephone or pay for a neighbor to have a public use telephone for them. look at the furniture sold by 9 out of 10 amish furniture shops. made by electrical power tools.
They use ALOT of modern amenities by paying others to own them for the express purpose of letting the amaish community use them but not personaly "own them"
