Steal This Link.

Steal This Link. It looks like the guys at Tenant Net are the latest to take Abbie Hoffman's classic piece of advice. Will the recession (not to mention, teehee, the US dollar being at a three-year low against the euro and the British pound) make it relevant and, er, practical, again? Or subversive even?

Mykel Board has been guilty of Grand Theft Hoffman on occasion.

Is this where we say you have to read the whole link before you comment on a post?

ginz, many of Board's cloumns have pilfered entire chapters from
Steal This Book!; the social aid programs, cheap digs and wilderness training may have changed over the years, but the resemblances still remain.

Ah, it's new to me.
I like how the first aid for street fighters comes just after the section how to make a bomb. heh.

Last month, a student was arrested because he stole "Steal This Book" from my campus' library...

I found that amusing, though I am sure that it happens all the time...

I was in B. Dalton yesterday, saw it, and thought about it.

It's ridiculous to talk about a revolution without a few words on guns. If you haven't been in the army or done some hunting, you probably have a built-in fear against guns that can only be overcome by familiarizing yourself with them.

I'd forgotten how pro-terrorism those dag-gum hippies were.

thanks Miguel! i'd never read it....

and Tenant Net is a great resource (esp. for us New Yorkers, but applicable to any American who rents)

They've actually been publishing it for a while (at least since June, when I happened to notice (self link)). Also check out the background they provide on the history of the book itself.
