Making light of death.

Abbie Hoffman was an American protestor/student activist, who wrote a bestselling book called, 'Steal this book.' It detailed (at the time) all the ways you could basically live for free in America. It included things such as free air travel, free food, free accomodation, how to make bombs and guns and how to protest effectively. It became a bestseller on the New York Review of Books list and, like it's title says, was stolen more than bought. It was stolen so much, that libraries refused to stock it. Abbie Hoffman died at the age of 52.
