This issue reminds me of the Amish people. They chose an arbitrary point in time, an arbitrary lifestyle and an arbitrary level of technology and defined that as the ideal way to live. It seems that some woodworkers are doing something similar with their definition of woodworking.

Yes but- Even the Amish…. You bring up good point of Amish woodworkers as a lot of people see them as “handcrafted purists” but there is more to the story-
Here is an example how things change
“Because Amish beliefs prevent the use of electricity, many woodworking tools in Amish shops are powered by hydraulic and pneumatic power that is run on diesel compressors. Most communities permit some technology, and allowances can be made in the case of woodworking, as the craft often supports multiple families within the community.” Also should someone want to research more- read about how some secretly work with second parties to sell authentic stuff on the internet.
Just saying,
