An hommage to Abbie Hoffman’s Steal this Book.

Written in 1970, the book exemplified the counterculture of the sixties, mainly focusing on ways to fight the government, and against corporations in any way possible. The section “Survive!” describes techniques of obtaining “free” things through legal and extra-legal means to survive “on the run.” It includes chapters on how to acquire food, clothing, furniture, transportation, land, housing, education, medical care, communication, entertainment, money, dope, and other assorted items and services. Suggestions include the use of slugs, taking advantage of government and church hand-outs, and a variety of shoplifting techniques.

On the success of the book, Hoffman was quoted as saying, “It’s embarrassing when you try to overthrow the government and you wind up on the Best Seller’s List.”
