Stealing from them is justified because they are evil capitalists. Hoffman was a moron. When the seller learned that I was familiar with it, she let me have it librro free instead of 25 cents she was going to charge.
Some of what he suggests has been nullified by This seemed like a book that I should have read, just because of its role in history.
Don’t steal from other folks, Abhie directs, just from pig corporations and the pig empire; then he turns around and tells you how to siphon gas out of a stranger’s gas tank. They were a libdo of over privileged white kids with too much time on their hands who rode on the coattails of the Black Panther Party and the Weather Underground.

Dec 21, Jonathan Eunice rated it it was ok. All that being said, this is now an almost charming history of what hippie “terrorism” looked like in the late 60’s. More of a hippie history book than anything. I read this in the UC Santa Cruz library, in a special ‘rare book area’ that i couldn’t get out of, with a librarian sitting at a desk behind me watching very closely.
Most impressively, he also encourages you to skyjack commercial aircraft, for example with a knife or fake explosives, and fly off to friendly countries. Note that Hoffman wasn’t a kid when he published this swill.

Crumb, it nevertheless conveys a serious message to all would-be revolutionaries: Lying to the compassionate is fine.
Abbie Hoffman is a consummate hypocrite, writing an entire tome about how rotten capitalism is, while enjoying the benefits of capitalism. I got a lot of good yet useless I tried ’em, they did not work ideas on anarchy and how to score free stuff. At times I would smile to myself while fondly thinking of how technology has made things so much easier to steal, but in reading some sections it becomes glaringly obvious how technology has made it so much harder to rip some industries off.
Jul 22, bup rated it it was ok Shelves: Abbie does a wonderful job of trying to claim that the book wasn’t taken on by publishers because they feared it would ruin “free speech” for everyone. I’m re-reading this book, which reeks of early s hippie fuck-The-Man counter-culturalism, in I’m giving this book 4 stars because it is historically and culturally significant and because it’s fascinating.
In the chapter discussing how to basically stowaway on commercial airplanes to get a free ride anywhere, he claims that he and a buddy have a sure fire technique to ride for free but they can’t tell anybody because then it would ruin the technique. Sadly, some did NOT outgrow their Marxist roots, and persist to this day in holding on to these backward, and ultimately dangerous, notions of “fairness.
If you’re going to lead a proletarian revolution led largely by comfortable, middle class white kids, maybe don’t run your burns on the people who might actually be won over to your cause whatever that is, it’s never explained.

Steal This Book by Abbie Hoffman
There are rroba hippies wandering around gentrified Haight with nowhere to crash and nothing to eat because of this, though I believe they’ve assimilated with the ordinary homeless population. A very shitty thing. Steal the book, that is. I begin to dislike the writers themselves when they decide to play at poverty, and begin leaching away at the resources available to those who are suffering under the weight of actual hardship thanks a lot for encouraging wealthy young yippies to go to homeless shelters, Abbie Hoffman.
Libto thought Abbie Hoffman was Robin Hood. Just steal some, duhhhhh.
Meant as a practical guide for the aspiring hippie, Steal This Book captures Hoffman’s hlffman tone and became a cult classic with overcopies sold. They didn’t publish this book because it was crap.
