Early life of Abbie Hoffman:


        Hoffman was born on November 30, 1936, from John Hoffman and Florence Schoenberg in Worcester, Massachusetts. Hoffman was raised in a middle-class Jewish family and had two younger siblings. As a child in the 1940s and 1950s, he was a member of the "transitional generation between Beticans and hippies". He described his childhood as "a pleasant life" and a "great time to grow up" in the 1940s.

        During his school days, he came to be known as a troublemaker who started fights, misled the school, plundered the property of the school, and referred the teachers to their first names. Hoffman was expelled from the now-closed Public High School Classical High School in Worstall in his Sophomore year. As an atheist, Hoffman wrote a paper, which states, "Lord could not possibly be present, because if he did, there would be no suffering in the world."

        The insane teacher torn the paper and called it "a communist punk". Hoffman jumped on the teacher and started fighting until he was restrained and was fired from school. On June 3, 1954, 17-year-old Hoffman was arrested for the first time on a non-licensed vehicle.

        Hoffman, who received a psychology degree from both the University of California (1959) and the University of California, Berkeley (1960), was active in the American Civil Rights Movement before turning his energy into the Vietnam War and the American economic and political system. . His acts of protest blurred the line between political action and the guerilla theater, and he used the absurd humor.

        In August 1967, Hoffman and a dozen confederates hampered operations in the New York Stock Exchange by showering on the trading floor with a dollar bill. In October of that year, he led a crowd of more than 50,000 protesters in an attempt to provoke the Pentagon and overthrew those evil spirits, which he claimed about.

        During the Vietnam War, Hoffman opposed the war and the American economic and political system. He used humor and dramatic methods to express his ideas, which gave him a lot of popularity. An example of this was when they challenged a group of soldiers who formed a barricade to block the steps of the Pentagon to use mental energy to paint vibration until they are orange.

        Hoffman was arrested and as a member of the group war, an attempt was made to oppose him against the Vietnam War, the Chicago Seven. However, even in trials, he retained his rebellious attitude and often targeted judges and lawyers. He was convicted of provoking a riot and was sentenced to five years in prison, but was later convicted by the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals.

        In 1971, Hoffman waved his thoughts with the pen of a book entitled "Still This Book". Through this writing, he encouraged the readers to go to the stage in concert programs and live shows and deliver their message among the big audience. Also, he taught them how to live for free. Inspired by the title of the book, many people started stealing the book from the shops. In addition, Hoffman wrote many other books, such as Vote!
